Is it okay ?

entertain

 

Dear Person...........white, black, yellow, pink, brown or see through....... I do not care what colour your skin is, what religion you pray to, or for that matter where you live on this planet

My mission.........should I choose to accept it 

To 'entertain you' through words, pictures, video, radio, screen or printed page in fact my greatest and biggest dream would be to have a film shown at a cinema !

It is hard to describe what I want to do, in fact I would go as far as to say, even thinking about it excites me so much it is frightening 

To sit here and contemplate what I am actually capable of frightens the god damn hell out of me

Be it by motorbike, car, 4x4, plane, train, bus or boat in England, Ireland, Scotland, Wales, India, Canada, South Africa, New Zealand, Vietnam or the centre of mongolia wearing flip flops (pilf polf is german for flip flop) I have a massive desire to go to these places and attempt to entertain you with stories, filsm and pictures from my journey 

It has taken many years of wondering what I want to do in my world and the wars that have been going on in my head have been biblical, however, I now believe I have had to go through this journey to end up where I am right now 

I have been producing stuiff via my motorbike/s; mostly in pain.....not a lot of pain but enough to have it tapping on my shoulder making sure I can feel its arrival 

I had a flash if the blinding obvious early today which was.......my father died at 76, my mother at 70, my grandparents basically around the same time, however my mothers sister is 74 and puts me to shame with her boundless enthisiasm for life and it an absolute inspiration to me

What is the point I am trying to make, well it is this, I may have 18 years remaining to entertain you 

I have been hung up on what mode of transport to use but again a realisation is that it doesnt matter what I get about on does it !

I want, for as long as I can, to write, photograph, film, tell stories, share discoveries, inspire you to break free for your 4 walls and explore with me through my journey 

Is it okay to entertain you in this mad world we live in ?

A long long time ago

digital world

 

A long long time ago I can still remember when the music made me smile ! - now which song is that from ?

Seriously I can remember when I first heard about digital books and thinking this is the end of print. This would be around 2005 so not that long ago really.......

However whilst we seem to be thundering along in this new digital world and please do not get me wrong the digital world enables us to connect to 'people' just about anywhere on the planet in a heartbeat........however 

To me, even though I have produced digital guides, I find they have no 'soul' 

Realistically in my own social media experience I feel I could be connecting to a robot that responds to my messages or texts because I have never met 95% of the 'people' I have 'connected' with so who is to say that isnt the case !

Back to books that have been printed where words are actually seen on paper, that can be touched, highlighted, written on, and felt !........now is that not what books are all about being able to 'feel' the writers passion there on a page you actually turn !

Since printing my Lake District guide the comments I have had have left me gobsmacked.......here are a few (these comments never came with my digital guides)

1. Fabulous book and videos Kevin. Makes me want to get out there and ride

2. I have just received Kevin's book and have to say how impressed I was with the professional layout and production.
It is so well illustrated and laid out, which will obviously make it a pleasure to use when I visit the area later this year. The idea of including links to videos is a great one and they too are so well produced. I have always been a fan of Kev's Facebook page too and his professionalism spills into this too. His sponsors should be pleased with themselves as well.
It is a great publication and Kevin should be so proud of himself for getting this project to this stage - well done buddy - and keep up the good work as I am so looking forward to the others!!

3. Well worth buying. 
Superbly written and the pictures are stunning. 
Loads of information in there Inc online info only available to those who buy the book.
I love it me

4. I ordered and paid for the book just prior to its release and eagerly awaited its arrival. Let me tell you it doesn't disappoint ! 
An excellent informative book which I will use to plan some new adventures and to relive Sunday trips out with my family from when I was much younger and even a school trip which must have been to Surprise View (Identifiable from photos in the book). I plan to revisit 30 odd years later . Its no excuse really as we live fairly close but Kevin`s book has inspired me to get out there reliving memories and also to make new ones !!

The rooster café looks tempting too !

5. hello Ive received your book Cumbria and the Lake District and got to say fantastic will be taking it with me next time I go up there great read and videos thanks Dave

 

Onwards & upwards

Just a thought

Every day I wake up my mind thinks of a million reasons to change what I am doing 

It is not easy to ride an area, to video and talk at the same time about interesting facts........I have to get it right the first time because while riding there are no second 'takes'

Then I look at my motorbike clothing lying there and I smile because it makes me feel fantastic, putting my suit on makes me feel on top of the world.......in fact I would like to ride the world and film the ride, write about the ride and share the ride with the world 

Putting on my trousers followed by my jacket it is hard to explain how my mindset changes, how my whole stature changes and how my thoughts change to what lies ahead 

It is the strangest feeling in the world for me and I do not understand why these changes take place

I do not question them I allow them to take place and maybe it is because the suit is my suit of armour

I am so lucky to be able to do what I do
