Just to let you know that mother (75) and daughter (44) can walk 190 miles in blistering heat and still find things to talk about.
Will post more details later as promised

Well done to you both!
The weather we've had recently is an additional challenge you probably didn't need.

Look forward to hearing your full account.

Is that really RHB ?
Looks more like the Costa Del Sol to me.

Many Congrats to both and look forward to a journal perhaps on "walking places"

It was hot, well done. Have a good rest and come back next year.

You really made me want to do the C2C next year. Age is no barrier and people say once you reach 40 you're over the hill (pardon the punt) I'm 50 in a few days time and am fitter now than when I was in my 20's, though I was 6 pints a night and 30 cigs a day then.

Well Done On Your Crossing.

Go for it, Marty.

I did it in June/July to "celebrate" my 50th birthday. I'm still basking in the glow of it.

Well done Debbie and Gwen. It's a great achievement and a great feeling, innit?

Congrats. Debbie and Gwen, We completed the walk on 22nd July 06 having endured similar heat conditions, so I can appreciate what you had to endure, I am 'only' 65, and my colleague 55 ish,and hope I am in as fit a condition in 10 years time, we hope to do Lady Annes way next, as we have both got the long distance walking 'bug'. Well done again.
