2010 Challenge

This year our aging gang of lay-abouts are attempting to do something totally daft - but what the hell!

Steve's oldest son - Joseph - has been chosen to go to the World Scout Jamboree in Sweden in July, 2011. Brilliant! But unfortunately it needs money!

So, Steve and Clive are currently enlisted (with John being unable to because of family commitments) into doing a 154 mile walk from the Hoe in Plymouth to Lands End on the most western tip of Cornwall.

Hopefully Neil will join us too and if anyone see's Min - tell him we've lost his contact details but he's invited too!

We aim to leave in late August 2010; walking for 6-8 days travelling the south Cornish Coast route (with a couple of diversions on the way!)

Any support will be gratefully received. Especially offers of sponsership and even advertising. If any companies want to help us we'll sell advertising space for sponsership!

So please follow this Blog; we'll update as often as possible and once the challenge starts we aim to update daily.

Welcome Bloggers!

Welcome to this Blog - dedicated to the exploits for four or five aging old fools who all met originally at Penair School in 1980

Neil Jones, Steve Varker, John Brinkhoff, Simon 'Min' Nicholls and Clive Stocker started Penair School in the September of 1980. Little did they know they would be friends almost 30 years later and over the course of this time have seen trips to France; various business' born; management and professional qualifications gained and between us 11 offspring (at the last count!)

We all come from totally different backgrounds and have travelled different life choices but one thing unites us all - the wish to generally take the mickey out of each other and to have a laugh on the few times we get to meet up each year.

We also travel the internet under another name - "the Old Buggers" - but for the latest challenge we've decided to become more media friendly - this the phrase "Penair Oldies" has been adopted - but we'll still answer to the former title!

Please follow us on this blog and support us in any way possible. In the next Blog I'll tell you what the latest 'Penair Oldies' challenge is!
