With only a week to go I thought I'd try out our first blog entry! Just a boring entry about preparation. Anyway to ensure we can be self sufficient for at least 48 hours, as in the fridge, lights and water pump keep running without electric hookup. I replaced our faulty 105ah leisure battery with a larger 125ah one. After all no one should have warm beer on holiday.

Day 12 completed. Only 5 more to go. Wainwright in his book was not very flattering of this stage of the walk. It was a bit of a trudge in parts. No sooner had we left Richmond it started raining, steady and moderately heavy, lasting the whole morning.

The walk was an easy ...

Today was a long day, 27 km with (of course) a big climb above 2000ft at the start. Both of us struggled to get out of bed, dragging our heels into the breakfast room, really just wanting to go back to bed. Last night I limped to the Indian Restaurant in Kirkby Stephen. I had had a sore heel during Saturday's walk and inspection after dinner showed a tense blister the size of 20 cent piece begging for some attention. I punctured and dressed it and by this morning it ...
