Doodlecat's Homepage

Picture of Doodle - a 
black cat

Welcome to Doodlecat, where we enjoy the pleasures of life (with a slight bias towards the outdoors). This page is regularly updated with news and views plus information about any additions or changes to the various parts of the site. It acts as Doodlecat’s Blog too, so the odd rant considered opinion may pop up from time to time.

I would love to be able to say that Doodlecat is all my own work, but it isn’t. Much of the outdoors content is courtesy of the splendid people who participate in the annual TGO Challenge (there is a section entirely devoted to this unique event) and many others.

To help in tracking down that elusive morsel on Doodlecat, the search facility under the title bar above is tailored to help you find it, either on this home page (Doodlecat's Blog) all the rest of the site (Main Site) or – if all else fails - the internet!

So have a rummage around the old cat basket and enjoy your time with us!

New TGO Report

Geoff Reed is returning to the TGO challenge this May, after ten years away from the event. He has fond memories though, and shares some of them from his 1995 crossing in the TGO Challenge section. Follow Geoff and his pal, Dave, as they make their way from Oban to Auchmithie, surviving trials by Guinness, lost maps, stag party, a wedding and finally being fire bombed on their way to successful crossing.

This all sounds very familiar - except for the fire bombing. I am often amazed at how some characters manage it across Scotland. Mind you, if you have enough alcohol on board you probably need less clothes as your blood will freeze at a lower temperature.

That's my theory anyway. Works for me.

When are you at the Fife this year Geoff?
