I'm on with the planning now. Hadn't realised how much work there would be sorting out a route, together with campsites, walks, bike rides etc for a two to three week tour like this. Anyway, bottom line is I now know that due to prior commitments for which I have to be back home by Easter, I don't have time to do the whole route that I'd hoped so I've had to re-think and abort the Highlands section of the trip until another time.
So hopefully, I've got a realistic itinerary on the table now, involving getting as far as the Scottish borders having "done" Yorkshire, Durham and Northumberland, and saving Cumbria for the trip home.
The "bus" is primed and ready to go. Just need to load it up now...
So, less than a week to go now. The transport's ready, the pile of supplies is growing and the route is sort of finalised. I'm going to look a bit of a prat if this all goes horribly wrong and I can't get off the drive!
First port of call is York and the plan is to find a wireless hotspot when I get there (immediatley after I have made a cup of tea and set up the satellite tv!) and share my experiences (of the M1 amongst other things - if you hear of a long, long tailback heading North on the motorway on Monday, don't call me!!)
If I can't find a hotspot I will try to add a note from my phone just so all you interested viewers can rest assured that I've achieved phase one!
Til Monday then...
