Free Country

Hat tip to Bishop Alan for highlighting this great project which can almost be seen as the anti-Long Way Down.

Whereas Ewan McGregor and Charley Boorman meticulously planned the trip and got masses of corporate sponsorship to pay for it, George and Ben turned up at Lands End wearing only Union Jack boxer shorts, and relied on the generosity and hospitality of the British public for the clothes, food, accommodation and even the bikes they needed for the trip north.

They were followed by a film crew, but intentionally they tried to avoid mentioning the crew as that may have influenced peoples willingness to help. Part 1 is below, and part 2 is also available on YouTube. More details of the trip can be found on the project website.
