Catching up with Ed

I've been watching Ed's excellent videos on his journey through Australia. He's now in New Zealand. Looks like he'll be in San Francisco in January. Is anyone thinking of riding with him when he's here in the US? Sure seems like it would be fun to catch up with him for a day or two.

Thumbs up

Much respect.

I have enjoyed the videos of his Epic journey that I have seen. I hope to some day be good and fit enough to travel a bit on a Uni.

Yesterday I was able to ride a leg of Ed's journey while he came to the Dallas area. Super cool dude. We went 57 miles from Plano, Tx to Elmo, Tx. I feel very lucky to have had that experience.

Dude is a beast. His uni weighs 80 lbs geared up. All I had was about 3 liters of water and my nightfox and barely made it. Mad respect for the guy.

Can't wait for him to come back to the UK, if he's riding from Scotland southwards I might get a chance to do a leg with him!

I dabbled with this unicyclist.com in 2001, then got involved with other activities, so bear with me. I'm learning at the age of 50 !

As mentioned I'm an older rider, new to youtube, and new to the blogging, not interested in the whole facebook activity. I got back into the unicycling and started watching some videos on line, however with so many other hobbies there just isn't enough time to learn it all.

I viewed this one unicycling video with a young Ed Pratt "unicyling around the world" on you tube, and thought wow what an adventure. I'm only making this comment as I realized it was 2015-03-15, at 09:38 PM when this post was started ( it think ), just to see how far out of date I am, I realized that this fellows videos started in new zealand, but there was another comment about the UK.

I really need to figure out where to start, and learn more about his adventure before commenting. But if it wasn't for this thread I wouldn't have realized how long ago this fellow was riding around and traveling, or how others whom are like minded who are doing the same.

Thanks for reading as I practice how the website and youtube works in the same interest that I also have. You can check out my profile if you wish to see how this old fart started. LOL

You can view all of Ed's videos here:
https://www.youtube.com/user/worldunicycletour/videos
If you start at the bottom you can view in order up to current. He is still working on the ones across the US and back in the UK.

Welcome back Keiar! I remember you from NUC 2001 in Toronto, and a few other events I'm sure. The ladies thought you were hot!
