1979 Finnish instructional video on how to open a door

BritishHobo

All the discussion at the bottom of the previous page about the logistics of the Straight Line challenge are even more relevant now. The latest episode
Spoiler alert
is an absolute horror-show of a disaster. The bit where he's on the webcam mapping out the stumbling, disoriented route they took out of the forest is horrific. Thank fuck he didn't show video of the whole thing, it would have been a genuine Blair Witch descent into terror. All that aside, if you have even a shred of scepticism regarding the rules of the line challenge - as I know some of you do - the conclusion of this one will be very controversial.
[close]

Overall I'd say it's
Spoiler alert
pretty gutting. It seems like he had a lot of hopes pinned on this attempt, but literally everything that can go wrong, has. He's putting a brave face on it with the argument of whether it counts to leave the line and come back, but it must be a tough turn of events for him, especially since he mentioned not really wanting to risk doing another of these.

Helvetica Scenario

Straight Line thoughts:
Spoiler alert
I think after struggling through all of the obstacles they've had to deal with this time, only to be finally let down by something so entirely out of their control (GPS battery eating fuckery), the break should only count as a pause really. It looks like they go straight back from their hotel to pick up the line after recovering from their additional 10 mile horror-hike anyway so I'd give him a pass on that.

brilliant episode, best one since the very first one. thoughts later.

sevendaughters

if you recall S3E1 he mentions he was spurred to action because some other guy was doing it. well, here's his attempt:

sevendaughters

seriously everyone watch 15 minutes of this other cunt and you'll take back any negatives you ever said about Geowizard

sevendaughters

ok, firstly, the other guy's episode had in tears of laughter through all of the last 10 mins. none of it intended by the maker I am sure.

thoughts on S3E3 of real Mission Across Wales, spoilers

Spoiler alert
yeah, it's a fail for me. I know I made that post last page about it being ok to leave the line for the night and stay in a hotel, camp somewhere safer, gather nuts and berries and take a shite, I still believe all of that.

it's just in this instance they have wandered really far off the line and attempted to fudge it by saying it's a technical issue and that they only left the line because of issues - and then he spent two nights away ostensibly recovering and fixing up gear - that is part of it. he can put a brave face on it, but he has failed again. and i am sure he won't want an asterisked completion if that is what he has done.

this doesn't matter of course, it is fabulous entertainment. i love that he was madly shitting it in the dark and his missus, far from being up to her eyes in bracken, was sat in her car reading DH Lawrence or something.

Mission:
Spoiler alert
Verity reading a book was great. I thought they were going to have to call rescue services at one point, which would have been very uncomfortable given that he is a bit of a privileged dick for doing the mission at all. The resting for a whole day makes it a fail for me. If they'd gone back the next morning, maybe. He needs to come up with less annoying/illegal challenges now he's got so big.

Mission
Spoiler alert
Feels like a bit of a fail from the get go when you're attempting a record without setting explicit, clear rules. How come his go pro failed for hours and started seconds before he found verities car? Was that moment just a restaging?

sevendaughters

did anyone watch the rival attempt? I was honestly in tears near the end.

I wonderered whether this was because
Spoiler alert
the footage was probably a bit horrible,
just the two of them getting increasingly desperate, and probably pissed off with each other, given the mad meandering route. I could imagine a few proper arguments breaking out as they repeatedly find they've been going the wrong way, and guess another way to go instead, all the while it's getting darker and darker. I wondered if he either turned it off, or alternatively kept it on but decided he didn't really want to include footage of that tense, frantic atmosphere.
[close]

That rival line video must have made him feel loads better though, bet he was grinning like a loon watching it. The succession of "little did I know..." mistakes before he even starts the line is beautiful farce.

Just watched Mission across Norway. The peat bog looked like a genuinely life-threatening situation. Like he said - what a way to go.

thugler

These geowizard imitators are pretty feeble. I'd be embarrassed to put those attempts on YouTube. The chess guy in particular is hopeless. Makes geowizard himself seem that much more impressive.

Sometimes watch bald and bankrupt vids on and off if bored and something always felt a bit off about him. I didnt know if it was just some dodgy comments, his obsession with everything Soviet and bad areas or even his extreme extroverted nature (which to me is odd) but apparently he's a bit of a wrong un:

Edit - fucking hell by wrong un i mean manipulative sex predator type. His series seems to be an elaborate con job. Him hanging out at lonely bus stops and stopping women to ask them about an insignificant soviet structure or whatever makes a lot more sense now.
Fucksake youtube.

Oh fucksake. I ignored occasionally dicey personal vibes because they were really based on nothing at all. That all sounds pretty damning

Yeah I try not to be judgemental because as a socially weird bloke I know that strange vibes are sometimes innocent, but yeah an actual fucking cunt fairplay.

Amazed nothing has been done about this.

You need YouTube Vanced. Download the Vanced Manager from https://vancedapp.com/, and install it with that. (You also need MicroG, which you can also use the Vanced Manager to install.)

Gave that a go and it worked a treat. Can avoid nigel farage punting his latest grift for a little while longer.

Final part of the Wales mission is up, and if anyone thought the break after day 3 might make this a walk in the park, this will dispell that:

I do apologise, I have no recollection of posting the above at all. Since I have, I'll play nicely and explain that it's a mangled version of the start of this Whee-Lo commercial:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4OWzlXT4STs
plus some bits of a Slam In The Lamb advert thrown into the audio mix. Why? Don't know - I only started by idly making a loop of the first bit of the ad, then it sort of developed.
Demonic possession, probably.

Easily the best of missions so far. Really hoping that it will eat away at him in time and he'll make another attempt!

BritishHobo

Apparently on his Patreon he's said he'll be doing a new line mission in a few months' time, but he hasn't said where.
