Team story

<h1>&nbsp;HitchHop</h1> <h4>'How many islands can you set foot on in the space of two weeks?'.</h4> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>That's the question Jim Campbell and Brian Ferguson have asked themselves for HitchHop - a hitch-hiking island-hopping travel challenge they are embarking on in the west coast of Scotland this July, in aid of the RNLI.<br /></p> <p>Inspired by a love of Scotland's islands - and the hitch-hiking they have enjoyed there - the pair plan to see how many of them they can get to within 14 days in July. <br /></p> <p>The challenge will begin at a yet-to-be announced ferry port on July 1 and will finish at the lighthouse at the Butt of Lewis, the most northernly point of the Western Isles, hopefully just in time for the start of the Hebridean Celtic Festival.<br /></p> <p>Through the challenge, Jim and Brian hope to raise awareness of the work of the RNLI, and also help promote the magic of Scotland's west coast and the experiences to be found there.<br /></p> <h4>HitchHop will have five golden rules:</h4> <ul> <li>We both have to set foot on an island for it to count.</li> <li>All islands will count whether or not they are inhabited - and even if they are connected to another island or the mainland by a bridge or causeway.</li> <li>Although we will be using ferries, our main mode of transport will be relying on the goodwill of others.</li> <li>We will accept an offer of a lift, either on dry land or across water, on any form of transport.</li> <li>Although we may make some travel plans in advance, we will accept not accept any lifts until the day we are travelling.</li> </ul>
