That's a hard walk in a day so well done Tony  O0
Teignmouth has a very good Wetherspoons if you are planning a repeat of the walk!

I'm really loving your blog about your SWCP adventures - great descriptions, very entertaining! I completed the SWCP back in 2012, it took me  5 years (as a 'light weight' i.e. a 'rambler'....).  Your experiences, photos and tea shop experiences really remind me of what a great experience the SWCP is.
BTW I still get milk delivered to me daily in glass bottles - maybe you could arrange to have hankies delivered daily to your camp site? ;)

Thanks Keith, I'll bear it in mind. As you can imagine, there are a number of places I want to return to, given life enough!

It's simple - one foot in front of the other.

Ha! Love it, John. Glad to hear about the bottles - I used to deliver them at one time.

The penultimate day - 17 of 18. Not easy at all.

I have thoroughly enjoyed reading the daily account of your walk, it brings back so many wonderful memories.   :)

As this is also a preparation for your Lejog next year, whilst it may be better to get expert opinion, I presume that you need to get your legs (bones) ready for prolonged and continuous day to day walking to prevent a recurrence of your stress fracture if that is what it turns out to be.

Thanks, Harland. It's still a long way off, and i hope to pack 8 kg instead of 13 - should help.

Does the 8kg include the 2kg of hankies Tony?  ;D

Just read the final excerpt Tony and well done for completing a difficult walk  O0


Good luck with LEJOG and presume you will be doing daily blogs of that little trip. Maybe consider downloading the Edinburgh Woollen Mill ap (if they have one) because hanky suppliers in the Highlands may be scarce.
