“Rambling was about freedom — it was never about being naked.”
Gough hiked from Land’s End to John O’Groats in 2003 wearing nothing but his rucksack, hat and boots. He was locked up several times as he tried a repeat trip two years later with then girlfriend Melanie Roberts. Scots cops later turned a blind eye, allowing him to return to England in 2012.
