I am Headless Chicken and this is my website/blog/orienteering thing.
I can imagine that at the moment you are wondering why on Earth anyone would call a website Headless Chicken so I shall explain:
there are two types of orienteer, the first type look for the controls in an organised, sensible way

(there are other types but I won't go into detail).
These two groups go by the names of GPS and headless chicken. Ok so what if I just made that up.
Oh and by the way. The purpose of this website (if there is one) is to help me get my Duke of Edinburgh.
The picture below is of Chickens that no longer come orienteering (did they go to KFC and never come back?!) but I reckon that I should keep a record of who they are
so people can understand my older adventures.

mistake to make given my name but... nooooo! So because of this I got another mention along the lines of "um sorry, the Headless Chicken isn't a boy" and then near
the end they played my song! (Somewhere only we know by Keane) This was my first time ever being mentioned on the radio or having a song I requested played so I'm a
