... br> Most mesmerised by - Andrew Gormley's sculptures at Crosby
Most luxurious accommodation - Lyzzick Hall Hotel
Most embarrassing moment - ask Judy
Most disappointing - we put on weight (but we are more muscular!)
Most helpful book "Land's End to John O'Groats" by Phil Horsley
Most helpful gadget - Garmins

Best tip - go do it and take at least 3 weeks...
