April I was within four days of setting off on my latest
attempt to repeat my 1986 marathon Greek canoe journey when I
developed Torticollis. Basically this is a paralysed neck but
in fact very much more. If you look up a website about
Torticollis you can find out exactly what it is. I could
hardly walk across the road or sleep. It was probably due to a
whiplash car crash. So therefore I had to cancel the trip for
the seventh successive year. I do not intend to give up and
hope to try again in 2017 to promote I.C.A.N. I will keep you

of the facts are a bit muddled here with more talk about martial
arts and my canoe than about our supporters and camp activities. I
can't dictate what papers choose to print, I did my best.
to anybody if we buy land as a result of them telling us about it
because this search has gone on for too long, it has become
ridiculous. Please can you help? We need land which has at
least a small flat area with access to water in some way. No
electric pylons or public footpaths over it. Reasonable vehicle
access. Not on a flood plain. Preferably not next to a habitation as
the occupants may be disturbed and object to our activities.
land should be agricultural, not building land in the South Devon
area between Exeter and Dartmouth. Preferably in the Newton Abbot,
Totnes, Dartmouth triangle. East Devon near Sidmouth could
also be considered. Some flexibility could be shown in any of
the above as this land for I.C.A.N. must be purchased soon. Good
luck and thank you. Friar.
