Join Me?

Hi Guys,

If you got my invitation on Facebook to join me here, then thanks so much for travelling through cyber-space to see what's going on. This is where I'm going hiking! This is where if I'm stuck behind a rock in a gale or an impenetrable fog and don't know how to get home, I'm gonna tell you all and maybe ask for some help! (If there's a signal!). If I'm happy or pissed off, I'll let you know and this is where you can come along for the ride from your own arm-chair if you like.
One average kind of guy is going to try to walk a hell of a long way and I'm going to try to let you know how I get on. So stay tuned as I prepare for the two week trip. British country side at its best. . . in the fog. . . rain. . . wind. . . and with any luck some beautiful sunshine too! Julia Bradbury, bring it on! Lunch in a pub, Yes please!

Its starting to take shape!

Tonight I filled in an application to a company to find me accommodation for my hike. Now I just need to dig a bit deep, find the money and make a commitment. If I pay, I'm going! What do you think? Shall I sign the check??

OMG - Its too late already!

Its January! All attempts to book accomodation in May are failing! The general advice is to have booked a year ago! Ouch! April's free, but just might be snowy! End of July onwards is also free. Need to re-plan. . . . I find it hard to believe that there are that many other people keen to stand in the rain with sore feet? Bummer!

So here I go!

It had something to do with the slow progress of grey and they eyes blanking me as I shaved in the morning. An idea reached the surface and the notion popped into this world. "Why not have a go? It's not too late!" So the idea was born and in chatting about it to friends and colleagues, the undertaking to walk the 190 miles from the west to east coast of England was inescapably hung out in public! Three national parks, many times as many blisters and for no reason other than because it was there and because just maybe "I could!"
