It had been my intention this week to say something about the route planning for LETJOG C2C, the Coast to Coast walk that Rob and I are embarking upon in a little over 10 weeks’ time. I have mapped our daily walks on the OS App, in order to plan our progress over the LakeContinue reading “A Whiter Shade Of Pale”
So, as I was saying last week, this time of year can be great for walking, and the experience really couldn’t have been more perfect first thing this morning. Continuing my early training for the LETJOG C2C walk in April is an unnecessary excuse for getting out and about when the day dawns bright andContinue reading “A Hazy Shade Of Winter”
Well, over this last week or so my training has started again in earnest for my walking challenges of 2022! I have some plans for a couple of 2- to 3-day winter walks, depending on pandemic restrictions and the availability of accommodation, in preparation for my LETJOG C2C (Coast to Coast) trek with my oldContinue reading “Walking Back To Happiness”
Thank you for joining, or for re-joining, my LETJOG Blog – it’s great to be back! On 2 April 2022 I will be walking with my old schoolfriend, Rob Stubbs, on an easterly route of around 200 miles across northern England – from St Bees in Cumbria to Robin Hood’s Bay in North Yorkshire. TheContinue reading “Let’s Go Round Again!”
Today marks a month since my return from Scotland after completing my LETJOG walk, and is the day on which my VirginMoneyGiving page is due to close. I have had an amazing donation today, from Fr Peter Fellows of St Andrew’s Church in Pencoys, near Redruth in Cornwall. Fr Peter holds a regular ‘First SundayContinue reading “The End”
As promised, and for those interested (and who have the Spotify App), I have compiled a Playlist of all those songs, in similar sequence, that I used for my daily Blog headings as I made my way down my twenty thousand roads. By and large the song choices represented are by the original artist (althoughContinue reading “LETJOG – The Official Playlist”
Following a few requests from those interested in the daily statistics of my LETJOG walk, I have prepared a summary spreadsheet: With apologies for the formatting errors – I have had to copy this as an image, as the spreadsheet would not transfer directly onto this website. The key facts are a total distance walkedContinue reading “LETJOG – The Statistics”
LETJOG – Day 58, plus 4: Sunday 18 July – INVERNESS to HOME! A late start today, and a fine breakfast, before Rachel and I checked out of the Ness Walk Hotel. We then walked along the River Ness, across the Ness Islands, and into the city to look around the centre and the castle.Continue reading “Going Home*”
LETJOG – Day 58, plus 3: Saturday 17 July – DORNOCH to INVERNESS (by Car!) Our day started with a lovely cooked breakfast at the Amalfi B&B, before saying our goodbyes to our super hosts Marelle and Edward. Then a short walk down to Dornoch beach, almost empty at this time of the morning, andContinue reading “Take Me Home, Country Roads”
LETJOG – Day 58, plus 2: Friday 16 July – WICK to DORNOCH (by Car!) After three nights, and following a somewhat lighter and more leisurely breakfast, Rachel and I left Wick, heading south and stopping at Helmsdale for a stroll around the harbour, Clynelish Distillery for the obvious, and Brora for an ice-cream atContinue reading “Time To Move On”
