When it's cold and snowy outside, and the last thing you want to do is climb in a damp kayak, then its time to start planning for next Spring.
Chris Seals is doing just that, planning a solo circumnavigation of the Isle of Skye to raise money for Help For Heroes. He has done similar things in the past.
However, in this case, 'planning' also means training, something he's recording on his blog which Chris will also update during the expedition.
So that's Chris and Bruce, both planning 'local' expeditions, in that they're not to some far flung corner of the globe. Makes me want to get the maps out.
