    Recent bicycle touring book: "Free Country"

    Apologies if this has already been reviewed/posted here. I did a couple searches and didn't find anything.

    "Free Country" is the account of two men, George & Ben, who rode from Land's End to John O'Groats.
    The book opens with them at Land's End in a cold driving rain and in the first couple pages we get the complete list of their equipment.

    Pretty standard stuff so far, right?
    Except the complete list of equipment is this:

    1 pair of boxer shorts each.*


    No shoes, no socks, no shirts, no money, no ID ...

    no bikes.
    And 3 weeks to make Scotland.

    I haven't finished it yet, but it's one of the funniest books I've read in a long time.

    Another better review here:

    *they do have A camera, a note pad, some note cards and pencil as well, else the book would be much shorter and less detailed.

    Is this a "Broke Back Mountian" adventure tour? I don't mind that, but I also don't really want to read that. Request advise please...
