Ah see, you didn't look everywhere for those earplugs  ;D


I take it, it came floating by while in the bath?  :D

It caught as I was taking the base layer off. Thought I was being bitten by a bug!

All mercifully on schedule, with only one tiny blister to report. After 8 days, my confidence has grown - maybe I really can do this! Still 9/10ths left to tackle, though. Latest blog:

When do you think you will be passing through North Devon?


Elmscott to Clovelly tomorrow, but hope for a fairly early start due to rain forecast by 3pm.

Thanks, Richard. Stunning views all the way but quite a test of fitness!

It's ok, you can stop doing the rain dance now. The gardens are happy. Me, less so.

Glad all is going well - weather excepted. That must be Great Hangman ahead in the last picture. You do meet some interesting people; the thought of towing a buggy up and down that path is mind boggling.
Looking forward to the next episode - keep up the good walk O0
So many paths, so little time

Thanks Jac. Came over Great Hangman yesterday - sadly in cloud.

Another good choice of rest day - made last October! I'd sooner be mooching in a wet Weston than walking.
It's good to have turned the corner so that I'm properly heading north now.

Here's my latest:

Enjoying your blog and following your progress. Hopefully you will have some better weather in front of you.


I couldn't see anywhere on your website that outlines your route to JOG. Am I missing something really obvious?


Keep up the good work  O0

He gave an outline at the start to the end of the Pennine Way:-
"I'll finish the northern side of the SWCP by the middle of June, head round to Offa's Dyke as far as Chirk (30/06), then across to Derbyshire, mainly via canal towpaths. Edale to Crowden will be on 07/07 followed by a rest day at my son's house in Sheffield, then:09/07 - Crowden to Marsden10/07 - Marsden to Ponden11/07 - Ponden to Gargrave12/07 - Gargrave to Horton13/07 - Horton to Hardraw - rest day15/07 - Hardraw to Tan Hill Inn16/07 - Tan Hill Inn to Middleton17/07 - Middleton to Garrigill (avoiding Cross Fell)18/07 - Garrigill to Burnhead19/07 - Burnhead to Bellingham20/07 - Bellingham to Byrness
Fingers tightly crossed as, bravely/stupidly, all the accommodation's booked!"

Thanks, Warbler, and to Harland. I'm about to cross over to Wales for Offa's Dyke and looking forward to it.
After Byrness I head for Edinburgh via Jedburgh etc, canals across to Milngavie for the WHW (with family in tow for that bit), then Great Glen Way and  trail of the new JoG Trail. Finish on 21/08, umless the sky falls on my head.
