    Awesome adventure lee, I grew up in Ellesmere Port – so you have my support! :-)

    I think it sometimes feels a little text heavy – and also having the text centred doesn’t really help much.

    also the highlighted hover text colour is quite dark, and on my monitor can feel a little lost.

    If I was going to change anything, I would give a bold statement as a "hook" on the home page to get people interested, once people catch a part of the vision you have they will want to read the rest of the site. This means taking away the big block of text on the home page. :)

    Just some thoughts :)

    Lee, what a difference the shorter width makes! Looks better already! You’ve had quite the journey already and you haven’t even left yet!

    Remember what I mentioned about have the sub-nav have a black background? You are half-way there as it turns black on hover, but it should really be constantly black.

    I think with a few design tweaks here and there you will have a nice looking product. Remember, to pick up sponsors, especially people that may simply be donating online, you’ll need them to feel safe using the site. As it is right now, I probably wouldn’t feel safe donating through the site. But keep going, you’re getting closer.

    thanks, yeah i remember what you said about the width thing.. I had my px at 1150.. although I did want a full width website.. I haven’t got the time to learn a fluid design.

    What do you mean with the sub nav?

    Am a bit confused by that :)

    Yeah, am gonna get sponsors and put there logos on the footer, hopefully giving my footer a nice kick to it.

    Do you think i should get a safe sticker or something?

    many thanks for your opinions :)

    sounds like quite the journey, Lee.

    I remember years ago, I went out to a small town near where I lived at the time to see
    hand colored slides by a man who had biked from the north of Africa to the south. He
    did this trip in the 30s, and had quite the venture, I believe this show was in the 60s
    or early 70s, I guess.

    good luck with the trip, I assume you will keep us up to date on this site. When do you
    plan to leave?

    Hi,

    thanks for the support.

    I won’t be keeping updates via his website as it’s not really anything to do with web design.

    If you wanna keep up to date you can subscribe to the RSS if you like :)
