Hi, welcome to A-Lindsay.com.

My name is Andy Lindsay .  I live in Milton Keynes, U.K. and I work in London.  I spent many years working in the forestry and timber industries which I loved.  Unfortunately you were expected to accept job satisfaction in lieu of wages and many of my jobs were just short term contracts. Athough I worked in some very beautiful parts of the world I got fed up of moving from job to job.  I eventually decided to put down roots and ended up working on the railway.

 

 

I have always loved the outdoors.  I don’t know why because my earliest memories are of being dragged round 12 mile hikes by my parents at the age of six!  when I became a teenager I immersed myself in camping, climbing, caving and cycling expeditions.  I avidly read every account of all the explorers.  I desperately wanted to become a hang-glider pilot and was taught by my “hero” -Ashley Doubtfire- the first person to hang-glide off Mt Kilimanjaro.  I loved his mellow laid back style which filled you with confidence.  Another great inspiration came from Dr. Mike Jones, the first person to canoe down Everest.
