With these walks I will be crowdfunding for the Scottish Society For Prevention Of Cruelty To Animals.
You can help raise money for this great cause by donating directly to the fundraising page: The Romans Walls for Animal Welfare (SPCA): https://www.justgiving.com/jeromeblanes1

The right gear

I am basically now fully geared up on everything I need: Bagpack, shoes, clothing, rain protection, etc. My choice was towards tactical gear rather than outdoors recreational gear. Most I bought myself and some was as usual provided by my brother who works for a well known company I shall not name without his permission. I also stocked up on a multitude of tactical gadgets and electronic gadgets which I will fully test during the walks. All my findings can be read here on a daily basis.
Other than my brother's gear and 2 shirts received from the SPCA, I have had no sponsoring. I don't really need anything but any ideas are of course more than welcome.
