I think you did very well and made a good call.
Funny how we all take photos of the sheep - the further we walk, the more we snap 'em.....

We could start a sheep photo thread but it may attract the wrong crowd.
 
Lovely photo's, do you take your pet rock on all your walks?

Great effort, I took the same amount of time last June and had a very tough time on the Cheviots due to heavy rain and strong winds.  Given the current conditions you were right to call it a day at Bryness, I'm sure you were well looked after at Bryness by Colin and Joyce  ;)

I did not include the weight of my pet rock in the 9kg!!  and yes, a good stay in Byrness.   Not sure what it is about the sheep, but they do get more photogenic as the Way goes along!!

Wel done and you did make the right decision we are still in the middle of a blizzard and it`s been bitterly cold for the last week. It would have been too big a risk especially for a solo walker see you soon when you come to complete it. P.S. there are some lovely Cheviot sheep on the last bit and you might even get a photo of some feral goats for a bit of variety. Joyce

 You did very well in those conditions.Aborting the walk before the Cheviots was the right thing to do.The Cheviots can be bad in summer but in these conditions they are a potenial killer unless you have the kind of backup they had in the Spine race and even then its not risk free.

Click on his name (where it shows Posted by:xxx on the lefthand side) and send him a message. He can point you in the right direction but may not, for obvious reasons, be prepared to use email.

For a minute or two I was really confused by the dates prior to today's first entry. As a thought, I'm not a user of paper maps but I do think that the A-Z 'Pennine Way' publications (2 x A5 thin books) are really good.
