Wye Explorer Facts

There's something about getting up close to the Wye a river I've known for some time. I've looked upon it and enjoyed its waters but unlike many I've gone beyond the primary channel something Paul and I intended from the outset. With its main tributaries hiked, valleys, vales and mountains explored and its estuary boated upon it's more involved than any other investigation I've undertaken before. Now solo but still a shared experience it continues to be somewhat off the wall as adventure goes. So what have I done to date and what am I doing to bring this river to people's attention as I get to know it more intimately?

What I'm Going to Do In 2017-18

1) In 2017 break back into the project by exploring numerous other tributaries and or regions of the Wye.
2) In 2019 embark upon a huge challenge to walk the whole catchment for the British Heart Foundation and the project.
3) Encourage as many people to join me (Mark) as is feasibly possible to share in the adventure
whilst promoting healthy living and the outdoors.
4) Walk, swim and canoe the whole of the River Wye as part of that challenge.
5) Camp many more times, improve skills and travel lighter.
6) Learn more about the river system.
7) Create more land and digital art (see this site)
8) Upgrade camera equipment and attain spectacular footage for the record.
9) Work towards a new website acting as an adventure resource for the whole Wye catchment.
10) Explore ideas for events to promote the Wye catchment and its wild offering.

LASTLY, I seek to inspire others as I go through a difficult grieving and bereavement
process. 48 years with your twin is no small thing and so, through healing amid the
outdoors, I feel I can demonstrate how the outdoors can help during such a devastating
loss. It won't always be easy but we honour those we love by, not retreating from life, but
living it well.
