Back at the Pig Place

‘Where the dear and the antelope play’… Or just pigs. We have some buffalo in the field opposite. So it could be, ‘where the pigs and the buffalo play’. Aynho Wharf Had to go to Aynho Wharf. For water. Turned around. Came back up again. Took about 2.5 hours from where I was before. The water takes forever to fill up at Aynho because of the low pressure. Solar and the cost of living Able to do all my cooking…

Aynho Wharf to Pig Place

Spent 3 weeks at Aynho Wharf. Perhaps a week more than I should have, but it appears no-one is counting. Anyhow, yesterday, I moved on. New Job…. At Amazon…. Working in the warehouse that provides the parcels that make up the delivery routes I do for Amazon Flex. It’s a 5am start, then 8 hours handling parcels and shipments bound for the Midlands area. Not a lot to it: Sort parcels when they arrive off lorries and log them on…

Pigging out

Yeah? On salad. Besides that, I’m trying to move during the prescribed time-frames for continuous cruisers. That’s meant two weeks only, then on to the next one. This year, I have to travel further, right the way down 22 miles from where I started in March. Pig turn It’s usually around this area that I think about turning around and heading back up. Not so this time, I’m thinking more about what lies beyond my terminal stop, Aynho Wharf, the…

Fresh fields

Yah. Moving now into places I’ve not really been before, certainly not without being passenger on the boat. Somerton Meadows This place is called. The towpath is indeed one large meadow spanning from the outskirts of Somerton to the River Cherwell. It’s got a nice iron bridge across the main span of the river. There’s also a mill stream that runs down to North Aston Mill at the other side of the valley. The field is home to some livestock…

Happy new-year

It’s a case of moving up and down. A little bit of hanging around. But I’m on the way back up again. New Year After getting frozen in at Nell Bridge for 2 weeks in the middle of December, I headed down to where I’d just come from, and where my last post was from, Aynho wharf. The Great Western pub is about a 3 minute walk. For New Year, it seemed like having considered what few options I had,…

Mooring at Aynho Wharf

Not a bad stop. Close to the amenities. I tend to moor away from the road, probably 2 min walk up the towpath which suits me better. You get better solar, the mobile signal is better and you don’t get intrusions from the odd idiot coming over the bridge beeping their horn. As I wake up, I can look out across the field. The sound of the trains are blocked by the industrial units which stand between me and the…

Between Nell Bridge and Tarver’s Lock

Having a look at happenings since I last posted. Maybe 2-3 weeks ago. I’ve decided to start making more youtube video’s, partly to pass the time, partly because there are some things which can only be expressed in video’s. I noticed that when that guy pulled the machete on me a couple on months ago now. The police have still not got back to me on that. Useless. Video never lies Well, it does. Quite a lot in todays age…
