Still going, if not strong, then doggedly. Morale still good, thanks largely to a lovely supportive family - obviously glad I'm out of the house!

Good to se you back on the Pennine Way, enjoying reading your blog, just wish I was now writing my TR of my C2C trip but that, after my fall, will have to wait, hopefully get around to trying it again in 2021  :)

Enjoying the read Tony. It's a nice balance of writing, not over detailing the route, and plenty of personal experience. Very enjoyable.


Wishing you good luck as you continue  O0

Many thanks, jontea. Hope you like the latest, featuring my over-ambitious 26-miler. Think I've just about recovered.

Well here I am in Scotland after 47 days of walking. Unbelievably, I'll set off from Jedburgh tomorrow with no dressings on my feet, after 800 miles. Right on, Altberg!

Another great read! Enjoying following your walk. What luck that you arrived at Forest View when you needed to repair your rucksack!

Enjoying the journal; brings back memories of my trip. I did less miles a day and camped apart from one BNB and one YH.

One or two crises to surmount in this blog but, in the interests of tension reduction, I'm still on track.

Well, I've made it to Inverness. The Achilles tendon's not at its best, but i'm not inclined to let it call a halt to proceedings.

The John o'Groats Way, when I did the final part of my LEJOG was very tiring in places, rocks along the seashore that you will have to walk slowly to prevent a turned ankle and with all the rain lately the streams you have to cross will be rivers!  Take care.  So now and again I would use the road, it isn't cheating!  Well done, keep going.
