The Eagle (or Tug,) is about to Land
Posted by Cool Your Jets IV on January 25, 2011
One of my good friends, Tug is about to arrive in the big bad city known as Buenos Aires.
He’s a good lad, his real name is Simon.
We call him Tug due to him being fully responsible for breaking the Grooms leg whilst away on Said Grooms’ stag in Andalucia Spain. Previously, we’d been in Spain completing the famous Caminito del Rey (Walk of the King) a famous walk if a little extreme and slightly illegal, near Malaga, Spain.
However, for the Stag we were Sport Climbing and it was during one of Jon’s climbs (the Stag) that Tug (Wing/Brake Man) ‘tugged’ Jon off the face of the climb. Resulting in Jon breaking his leg, spoiling our night out and meaning that Jon went down the aisle on crutches and the nickname Tug was born.
The Groom still got plastered, though not the plastered we were hoping for.
However, he arrives this Thursday and it’ll be good to have him here in Argentina. As is the tradition, Jon and Vodka Dave saw him off in the usual tradition – a bit of free camping on the South Downs Way with plenty of Cock(ing) action…..
Here for a couple of weeks, before moving north to Bolivia – hasta pronto mi amigo!
