Stand-In Dork Required – Apply Within!

Last week we bid farewell to Remy; he’s off to solo around Asia with nothing but his backpack and camera. We’re not convinced he’ll get up to much; literally the guy is asleep way more than he’s awake – (see loving montage below) –

So while he’s off for a 6 month nap in Asia; we’re a man short – and well, three’s a crowd. So if you fit the criteria below – get yourself over to the contact page and let us know in 30 words or less why you should become Remy 2.0. Applications should a) make us laugh b) make you sound awesome and c) give us 4 reasons to say yes.

Can you:
– spare time on occasional weekends for a hike
– enjoy idiot banter in car journeys
– eat two meals from a 2 for £10 menu (post-hike)
– get up and down a mountain without medical assistance
– do one armed pull-ups (neither can we but we try – well, Remy can, but he weighs like 7 stone. Probably)
if so..then we want to hear from you. No joke, we’re genuinely looking for a stand-in member of Dorks On a Hill (also if we like you more than Remy, we can replace him on a permanent basis).

It amazes me how powerful music can be; and how the right track at the right moment can elevate your sensory experience to the next level. But the effects aren’t only felt right there in the moment; they’re way more long lasting than that…music acts as a kind of cement for our memories to sit in. In an instant of hearing a track from years gone by, our mind is transported not only back to that memory but the emotions, the feelings, everything.

This is why I make playlists; this one will forever remind me of going for jogs around the seafront village I currently live at on the coast of Suffolk. In years to come a photo won’t remind me of the ground beneath my feet and the salty breeze in my face – but these tracks sure will.

So go grab your trainers, grab a bottle of water, stick your headphones in, and get out there…

Enjoy!
