Hi. Nothing else to report since the last time I posted on here. I’ve noticed that it’s about 5 years since thefurtheradventuresofbarmcake began. Cool. 

Finish job on the campsite in a couple of weeks. MAYBE getting annualised contract, which means I would get equal pay spread throughout the whole year for 6 months of work which would absolutely be the coolest thing ever, meaning I could spend 6 months of absolute carefree travelling every year and another 6 months doing the world’s most chilled, thoroughly enjoyable toilet cleaning job. 

OK tumblr here's what's happening at the moment:
Scooter module 1 test tomorrow. Bricking it.
Plan on spending the winter in Langdale.
Hope to live in a tipi maybe.
Turning my garden at campsite into an allotment.

Ha ha ha. After abandoning my search for the theory test centre I then ran out of petrol. Now I am stuck. Ha ha ha.

Missed my theory test because Workington theory test centre DOES NOT EXIST.

Fuck all people.

So instead of travelling in September I think I am going to


yeah you heard.

I’m going to buy 0.2 acres of land with a colleague and live in a yurt of tipi.


Lets see.

Living on land is good. 

You know how we’re all aware that that there’s a tiny number of super-rich psychopaths who run the world but we never ever see any of them so they’re kind of mythical evil beings?
Yeah well one of them’s staying at my campsite.

Far from his usual, unnatural habitation deep in the City of London, this guy is completely out of his comfort zone. It’s fascinating to watch and to finally meet him in person, after he hurled abuse at a colleague over the phone the other day.

That’s about it.

thefurtheradventuresofbarmcake is completely redundant nowadays

OH but i am going to tell you something in a second.

Most would also suggest that setting a tent up for the night in the playground of an abandoned pub somewhere north of Gloucester is a bad idea.

Nah mate.

I am on the train to Weston super mare. Getting a new scooter. How exciting. Most would suggest it is a bad idea to come 300 miles to get a scooter without seeing it first.
We’ll just see about that.

I kept expecting it to happen but my Tumblr is gradually becoming a little bit redundant. I will start a more public blog one day. 

Also I am now in a bit of a dilemma as to whether to 
- Save up, then travel round the world on my scooter.

- Save up, then go to Thailand to teach, buy a scooter there, work for a while, then come back on the scooter.


Life is hard.

Giving up on conventional education is incredibly liberating. 

An astoundingly strange thing just happened. There I was, just sitting outside tesco with £14 in my account, trying to figure out how to make it last for the next 10 days. Then I noticed the cash machine beeping and £20 sticking out of it. Now I’m not sure if I did the right thing here when I took it out and handed it to the manager behind the counter. There’ve been times when I’ve found money and kept it and not felt all too guilty about it. But then I checked my bank account again and found the balance had magically increased by £20 since yesterday to £34.
Karma? I dunno. It’s really sunny and I’m going to get something cold and delicious to drink.
