This dead kayaking headteacher.

Recommended Posts

Now, I know she could have got the money from someother mean - inheritance, lottery win etc etc.

And no one deserves to be rped murdered with their throat slit ...

But ....

' He had met Ms Kelty, who had quit her job at Knollmead Primary School, Surbiton to go travelling, before her trip to help her plan for the journey. '

'The self-confessed adrenaline junkie had only begun serious kayaking earlier this year - just weeks after skiing a return solo journey to the South Pole. She became the sixth woman to ski unassisted to the South Pole in January.

She also completed a 2,600-mile solo hike across the US among other challenges.'

In terms of time + money these are in the same league as going interrailing or youth hosteling.

Anyhow, if she wanted a dangerous expedition with an almost certain chance of death ... why did she just not go out for a drink near London bridge?

I reckon a solo ski to the south pole must be 6 figures....

Maybe she was suicidal... Stuff like the South Pole and the Amazon is stuff really only suited to Special Forces types.

The outfit that I've done a few courses with will take you to the South Pole. From vague memory it was somewhere in the region of 50 to 60k.

I'd call bullshit on that too, you're not allowed just to go off for a bimble in somewhere like Antarctica. A lot of it is restricted to science bods only.

One thing is for sure, the woman was fucking minted to be doing trips of this calibre.

She did the pacific crest trail before antartica thats 100 days of hiking 30 miles a day

Pro Athletes can do it in 2 months

The trail is 2,650 miles and it generally takes the entire snow-free season to walk. That's about 5 months. Elite athletes who are experienced on the PCT have finished the trail in as little as two months. The few who achieve sub-100 day hikes average well over 30 miles per day.

She was certainly fit, i suppose taking armed guards on a kayak trip means alot more expense, even if you can find some willing to do it and take on any pirates etc

Lots of vanity and ego "6th woman in the world to ski solo (unassisted) to the South Pole ", I mean who gives a shit about some 40 year old woman with a fucking twitter/travel blog taking selfies in places which a shit ton of others have been. "oh look at me with this poor local look how fucking cultured and well travelled i am", probably thought she was a modern Marco Polo after she got off her 7 hour Virgin Atlantic flight. She even gets told few days before she's going to get robbed and killed yet obviously ignored the locals. You're going past all these natives who haven't got a pot to piss in carrying 5k to 10ks worth of a gear and you're a lone woman, what the fuck do you think is going to happen?

There's this western woman disease where they think the rules of the west apply everywhere else, like that woman who went touring round the middle east on her own to prove that the middle east is safe and that the men aren't rapists or murderers, then gets herself raped and murdered.

 

At least we had a video of this - well just up to when things when wrong.

You know I wouldn't be surprised if some of these people end up getting killed by locals not even for the money, but for the disrespect of going to other countries, rubbing their wealth, while dressed head to toe in expensive "adventure" clothes, in the locals faces with the attitude of "you can't touch me and i'm on my own to prove it, I'm a rich white woman who votes for the Green party"

Parents both died of cancer

 

There you go. Possible that she had a terminal diagnosis. Possible that she knew she only had X years until she possibly was diagnosed. Poor woman.

We're all bitching her but perhaps she lived more than all of us. Terrible way to go though.
