This is it, men. Over the hill.
I spent almost the whole day today packing a rucksack and searching for lost things to put in the rucksack.
Very attentive readers may remember that me and LTD and Dawn are intending to attempt to walk between the highest several (four main ones and some others) public houses in England.
Thus, we have train tickets for Buxton. leaving late morning tomorrow.
On Tuesday we’ll be catching the X15 Stoke-on-Trent bus which will take all of 13 minutes to get to Flash where the walk begins at the Travellers Rest.
We’ll have light packs tomorrow and stay for a second night in Buxton.
And then the challenge begins. (Not the TGO challenge which starts roughly – very roughly – on Friday and good luck to everybody I know who are setting off for the coast on that day ) The plan is then to walk to Tan Hill Inn, drink some beer (just me, Dawn doesn’t and LTD isn’t old enough)
And then we will try to walk to Kirkstone Pass Inn via Shap.
The planned route is 319 kilometres in 15 days. We may knock a bit off this.
We may fail.
We may get a lock-in. We live in hope.
Actually, we live in Crook….
