I think the web site is really well put together and I am amazed how easy it will be to see where you have got to.makes our c2c seem rather timid.
Hello! I’m currently hitchhiking in Latin America and searching for a boat back. My partner Emma and I have been travelling for 16 months now, 10 of them without money, so we understand your situation we’ll. Anyway, I arrived at your blog because you’re doing something now that I would love to in the future. In that respect, thank you for such a detailed, beautiful and heart-felt resource.
I was thinking it might be worth asking AlpKit for sponsorship. They’re a great UK based outdoor equipment company and I know they occasionally sponsor folk. Given that you have already started, have a blog underway too and are a hero,you may be in with a chance. That said,what do I know?!
Best of luck!
Thanks Anthony – I’ve tried a fair few corporate sponsors but have got ignored or blanked many times and its all a bit depressing. I don’t particularly want to be a celeb but they do seem to get all the support they need, but they are also more effective at raising money and getting press coverage. Good luck with your boat back quest and thanks for showing interest in my little quest. I’m a long way off being even a vague hero but thanks for your very kind words. Pete
Nice chatting to you today. I will continue to follow your progress. Your friendly B.P. garage cashier. Jane
