Customer Review

18 October 2012
Adventurers are selfish, that is a given. When we watch stuff on TV we have images in our head of sponsors paying for everything and the 'adventure' is more like an 'all expenses paid' trip to do what you love doing be it rowing, climbing, trekking etc. In Solo Dave Clarke tells us what it is really like, the expense isn't just to the pocket either, the cost of what adventure does to a family is made all too clear by Clarke. The mental strain on the adventurer is huge and Clarke gets this across well. Rather than day 1 row a bit, day 2 row a bit more, this story tells of the inception of the idea, the design and build of the boat, the hardships and commitments suffered due to having sponsorship obligations, and of course the journey itself, warts and all...
A great read in an easy going style, makes you think what us mere mortals could achieve if we knuckled down to the task in hand. Would I get in a boat with Clarke? Not a chance, we are taking about a bloke who lost 600 tea bags on a rowing boat after all!!
