Did anyone see the Top Gear polar special this week? It was excellent!

In one of their more extreme and entertaining “experiments”, the lads made it their mission to travel to the North Pole. Jeremy Clarkson and James May made their journey in a super cool Arctic-modified Toyota Hilux, while Richard Hammond, not long out of hospital, after nearly having his head decapitated in a rocket-car accident, made the journey on skis and a dog-pulled sledge.

I won’t spoil it for you all by telling you everything that happened (it’s repeated tomorrow or can be downloaded from various torrent sites), but will say I was particularly amused by these moments…

  • Clarkson and May drinking gin while driving – all good and legal in international waters
  • Repairing a damaged wheel using lighter fluid and a blow torch
  • Smashing their way through ice boulders and eventually destroying part of their only means of transport
  • Nearly dying while driving on wafer thin ice
  • Meeting a scary looking polar bear
  • Hammond getting more than a little pissed off by a nagging woman and shitting dogs…
  • Before nearly freezing to death in a tent
  • And finding seal guts all over the snow

 
When I finally learn to drive, this will be my car

  • About Me

    So you stumbled across my blog. No doubt after searching for something bizarre on Google. Before you hit that 'Back Button', why not stay and have a read for a few minutes?

    If you are after a website which gives advice on how to hack an iPhone X, download the latest Steven Seagal movie, or view nudy ladies, you've come to the wrong place and may now press 'Back'.

    However, if you would like a lifestyle blog, written by a 30-something chap, living in Bath (England), feast your eyes on this.

    You won't discover how to copy PlayStation 4 games. What you will find is a blog, covering life in the West Country, the highs and lows of supporting two unsuccessful football teams, while sharing a house with a wife and rabbit.

    All written by a man, somewhere on the sanity-scale between normal and eccentric.
