Thumbs up!


I’m living on the road so don’t have 24/7 news coverage, a TV or radio. I don’t make a habit of reading the papers either. When I have a signal I do a quick look on Facebook, but that’s about all.

Despite this, I couldn’t fall to note the passing of Stephen Sutton. A courageous young man who captured the heart of a nation. Stephen was diagnosed with terminal cancer, but still managed to raise over four million pounds for the teenage cancer charity. £4,000,000!!!!

His journey was blogged like mine, but what different journeys we have had! You can read all about real courage, bravery and inspiration for a nation at

His trademark was the “Thumbs Up” picture. I don’t think I really do it justice, but here’s my version. We really are the lucky ones.

About Sophie Whiptank - aka Bart

I'm just a bloke doing some stuff, the more interesting bits I post on my blog. Scroll down far enough and you'll see me riding from Melbourne Australia to Birmingham, England in 2014. But now I'm working on another project, a single cylinder motorbike engine at 2750cc!
