Boarding cards printed – factor 50 sun block purchased-it’s getting very close

So,  with less than a week to go, the boarding cards are printed and panic has started to set in.

Have we trained enough?, have we drank too much?, are we too fat?, are we too old? Well, with the possible exception of the 1st question, the answer to all the others is a resounding yes.

I have indeed failed to moderate the alcohol intake, I’ve not lost any weight and I have most definitely aged a year.


Having checked Strava, the keeper of the records,

I appear to have cycled 1,471 miles and elevated myself nearly 82,000 feet.  For someone with a very large fear of heights, 82,000 feet is quite high enough.






No idea if that is enough but judging by the amazing progress being made by the FatDads, we are going to have our work cut out to keep up.

However, a revolutionary new product is set to dramatically alter our performance. Quite simply it’s magical powder.


Palcohol is powered alcohol that can be added to water to create a refreshing, thirst quenching drink.

To quote the company ”

“So he thought? Wouldn’t it be great to have alcohol in powder form so all one had to do is add water? Since powder is light and compact, it wouldn’t be a burden to carry”

Energy drinks and gels are all very well, but when you have cycled half way up a mountain, quite frankly, the last thing you need is a flapjack, what you need is a large G&T to get you up the next 10k.

Enter Palcohol.


Looking forwards to going back to Morocco and tackling the Ouka.


See you soon
