I got into watching Simon through his collabs with Andrew from Kent Survival.
I really like his easy going approach and the countryside is usually pretty if flat. That’s Norfolk for you.
I also like the canoeing trips he does as not too many people do those. You get a different view on the surrounding countryside.
And recently he has started doing ration pack reviews which I find super entertaining and very interesting.
