Day 2 Doncaster…Boulevard is Where I Spent Most of my Days!!
The wind tore through the tent like the angry breath of Zeus himself. Jesus on a bike it was cold! As with yesterday, I had awoken with the exact same symptoms of a borderline hangover, except this time I was blind in one eye and not in a comfy bed. As I searched my dilapidated memories, trying in vain to establish the reason as to why I was in a tent in the middle of no-where, I rolled onto a full can of cider…well at least I was sorted for breakfast…however this did not change the fact that I was now wide awake and could not feel the vital parts of my anatomy. The lack of conscious company was probably the most perplexing part of this freezing equation so a contingency plan was required. Nothing too strenuous, just a simple and manageable route from the potential gangrenous inducing spot I was currently located at, to the van where I hoped instant warmth and banter would be found. Because I was more or less now a Field Officer in Acts of Frozenness, whilst trying to vacate this tent of misery, my cumbersome movements did nothing but rouse the sleeping bodies of Richie and Laura who had been my tent mates of the night. With Richie now awake, this action could only result in us departing sooner than anticipated, which if truth be told was more than a joyful thought. If it had been a pleasant spring morning complete with a welcoming rising sun to warm our bones, then I daresay my inept attempts at opening the zipper would have been met with despondent grouchiness…of course seeing as we had woke up on what can only be described as a moor / beach, broken slumber was the least of our worries…or at least that was my assumption.
With the entire group now awake and semi raring to go, I was informed that Lanky, one of our colleagues in acts of mayhem, had been wrongly arrested for the previous night's shenanigans. Apparently having spent a slice of the night in the cells, the authorities had released him without charge at around 4.30 in the morning. Of course we had long since pitched up camp in the proverbial a*sehole of no-where, so his chances of finding us in the raging storm that had accosted us were so far away from slim that an actual phrase other than "aye right" has yet to be invented. The cruel fate that had bestowed Lanky was all down to me and I was genuinely vexed with myself when I learned the extent of his appalling tale upon his release from Barrow Police station. After a taxi journey to the morbid abyss of our pitch dark guesswork, Lanky eventually resigned to the fact that he was not going to find us that night. Obviously characters like Ray Mears or Bear Grylls would thrive on a situation like this, but in saying that, I very much doubt Ray or Bear would be attempting to function whilst mashed out their brains on a bottle of Vodka and umpteen beers…as a side note, it is this writer's opinion that ITV3 should definitely consider this for their next series. Lanky eventually decided that the best course of action was to hack into some woods and settle down for the night…not the wisest of choices for in the dark dark woods, during the dark dark night, the mind begins to fathom all sorts of nightmarish visions…
So far during the trip I had done nothing but rave about a new deadly animal that I had recently been informed about…the Honey Badger. Hindsight is a wonderful thing for if I had foreseen this disaster looming towards us, I probably would have elected to omit filling everyone's head with fantastic tales of this savage beast. At the very least I could have mentioned the fact that this species of Badger are only distributed throughout Africa and South Asia…they do not reside anywhere on the British Isles! Bullet points are the most effective way to illustrate the profound drunk terror Ross Lankyman must have endured thinking about this creature of the damned whilst sitting in that cold, blustery nature
