Ditch Monkey II – Brass Monkey: Start date

Ditch Monkey II – Brass Monkey: Start date. 

Okay, twisted readers, let’s follow along with the misadventures of Ditch Monkey as he burrows a hole in a snow bank and attempts to survive a winter. Jack


A sponsored live in the snow above a ski resort without a tent. I attempted this last year but inadvertantly got engaged and thus distracted but now I’m back, still engaged, and eager to give it another go. Currently I’m testing some kit and working out the logisics. There are various things to consider; how not to freeze to death, how to spend time with my fiance, how not to get carried away by an avalanche / yeti and how to not let this interfere with my job.

    Hey Jack, not sure if you saw my recent post on alternative lighting solutions. I’ve been using a Fenix E21 LED torch with bike mount for about a month, with much success – here’s a link to the post in question. http://theeverydaycyclist.wordpress.com/2010/12/04/alternative-bike-lighting/

    It’s okay, I’ll take any comment I can get…even the ones by mistake.

    Cheers, Jack
