Off to Scotland.

Later today when Sheila finishes work we will make our way North on a journey i don't enjoy. However, it does mean we will be on Scotlands west coast by tomorrow evening, so there is a reward.
Tonight we will stay at the Travel lodge at Stirling junction 9 and tomorrow head off via Spean Bridge to Glenelg.
There will be some backpacking and also some base camping, B and B's and a little tourista.
How it all flows together will be done by seat of the pants decisions based around the weather forecasts. But as always, once we get to Glenelg we will chill out and enjoy this wonderful part of the world.

A Champion in the wings.

On May 7th there was a road run from Coniston Village to Barrow in Furness. A distance of 21 miles or 33.8km's .
It was  an all ages race and the first Junior to finish was Alfie Rousseau Thorpe from The Square Cafe in Broughton in Furness, in 6th place overall. (Yellow tee shirt pictured centre in the photo below.)
He did the race in 3 hours and 13 minutes and he's only just turned 13 years of age. How amazing is that with over 1000 entrants.
Well done Alfie, we will watch your progress.
(You don't look as though you have run 1 mile in the photo)

TGO Challenge 2016

Where did that year go. I don't even think i have read all the blog posts about the 2015 crossings yet. Time stands still for no man, the saying says, and it seems to speed up the older i get. Why this happens i am not sure.
But it is now upon us, like it or not, ready or not. The stalwarts will have all the gear packed and improved on from many previous crossings whilst first timers will be checking and re-checking and will probably have some apprehension of what may lie ahead.
The good thing about the Challenge is the assistance you get from other challengers, the organising folk and from the general public.
Getting to the end is a magic feeling which has to be experienced.
So to all 2016 Challengers, may the sun God be with you and enjoy yourselves. That's the main thing.
