Now I,ve seen recently there are a lot of folks doing a lot of talking,but who are they really?
I think It would be very interesting if some of us let the others know a brief history of their life,so we may get an insight into who,s doing the talking!!
I,m 42 Scottish with no formal education.Left school washed dishes,moved to London to be a despatch rider,smoked a ton of dope and lived in squats for about five years.Moved to Ecuador to help my brother with a used Autopart business for about 3 years.They banned the import of used parts.Moved back to London,back to depatching but this time worked like a demon for 2 years and saved about 25k
I went back to Ecuador and opened the pub THE TURTLES HEAD based on my fanatical love of Viz, I,d never had my own business or worked in a pub,drank in plenty though.
Two years into the pub game I went and got myself a small microbrewery and started making the best
in town using the best British ingredients,3 years later I open another pub called Busters named after my Bull terrier.
At about this time I discover the Hubb and start encouraging the passing bikers to drop in for a
on the way past and pointing them in the right direction for bike parts,tyres etc and also general info on stuff in Ecuador,Peru and Colombia.
A year or two ago I get a job in the mining industry after a conversation in the pub that I thought was a joke,one thing leads to another and I find an opportunity to get myself into Geophysics of all things.
So at the moment I find myself living in Medellin Colombia.I,ve just successfully finished my first contract in Colombia and just about to begin the second.
The pubs are still running in Ecuador and I,m looking at the possibility of doing another bike related bar here in Medellin.
So there you go! thats who I am
Now who are you!!!
