Cornwall walkers needed next week!
« on: 21:15:36, 07/07/19 »
Due to late drop outs we need two male walkers to complete our party leaving next Sunday (14th July) from Plymouth. Walking SWCP to Par then across to Newquay and down to St Ives on the 20th. Carrying rucksacks, ages from 30-60, c10-15miles a day, accommodation in hostels, b&b, hotels.


All professionals. All a lot of fun? Message me if you are keen!

Are you organising for personal profit?

Professional walkers? They do exist but they are a rare breed.

Nope. Just a group of friends taking to the path they love. Do it every year (this is the third). Going to be seriously out of pocket this year though as booked accommodation ages ago. If Iím aiming for profit Iím a worse businessman than I thought I was! Still hoping someone will save me!

I have to respond to that! As walkers we are anything but professional! In it for the ale, the company and the food I think!
Professional careers is what i meant...mostly teachers. Trying not to come across too much like axe murderers or miscreants!

So anyone who doesn't have a professional career is more likely to be an axe murderer  :o
Are professionals more likely to be drop outs ?   ;D
DRIP COFFINS  :D

Oh yes, we are definitely drop outs and professional axe murderers of course. I mean it would be an amateurish mistake for an axe murderer not to try and cover their tracks or make themselves appear normal. In my experience the most successful axe murderers have tended to appear professional and decent right up until the moment they drop the blade between your shoulders.

Actually, the professional way is not between the shoulders but rather at an angle at the base of the neck and the shoulder. Between the shoulders - rookie mistake.

Who would have thought that in trying so hard to avoid sharing a walk with axe murderers we would end up attracting so many! And yet still not a willing hiker, axe murderer or otherwise, to actually join us. Going to be so poor in a week or so I will need to find a crime that pays more. Embezzlement anyone? Blackmail? Cybercrime?
