Never Stop Learning.

Never Stop Growing.

Never Stop.

The Bloke has been around for several years now, in various forms, rising from the ashes of a different site, The Bloke is really me documenting my experiments, learning and testing.

I am a self-confessed gear-whore. The amount of money I have spent on gear that may or may not lived up to the hype over the years, is, well, frankly embarrassing. However,  it's been driven by a desire to do things better, more efficiently and sometimes, just more comfortably.
