Pavel isn't there this year

I wonder why he isn't doing it this year? He will be missed  :(

I'm having a go at a completion in the "Baby Spine". I'm number 343.

Good luck DinoF  O0

The weather looks unseasonably warm for sunday, could be into double figures.
With 40 mph winds at lower levels.On the tops it could be far stronger.
 Good luck DinoF O0

Ready for this years dot watching.

Good luck DinoF. To quote an old saying but also relevant to all walkers

May the road rise to meet you, May the wind be always at your back. May the sun shine warm upon your face.

I am having problems with tracking on my tablet. No tracking shows. I click on participatants and nothing happens. It is OK on my laptop. I am using the same web address.  Is anyone else having problems.

Addictive dot-watching time has arrived so I am glad I have found the thread for the sofa supporters. I have got a rather busy week of work - poor planning on my part. But I will do my best to keep updated via here, FB and watching those dots.


Good to know that sussamb and slogger are providing hands on support - always good to get the insider info. Wonder if there will be any controversies this year. I must say I was looking at some of the challenger packs and wondering how on earth they get all their gear in such small bags.


I love the snippets of film on FB - the runners always seem so cheery!!!


Happy dot watching!
