What's Offa's Dike like ? I've never been to Wales.. How does this walk compare to others ? Do many people do it in one strech with a full kit ? How about Pubs and camping ? Comments appreciated... Cheers...

I did it in one stretch over six days, mostly staying at Youth Hostels, and found the pubs to be a bit sparse through some sections.

Vex. Yes, with a few extra miles off route to and from my accomodation, I averaged 33 miles a day, with a maximum of 42.

Nothing Loungful about your Big Days Mr. Lizard... This year while, walking the Coast to Coast, I met a young guy who was doing the C2C in 6 days... Thats alot of mileage.... Persoanlly I like to mix it up with camping and carry a full kit. I find that an average of 15 miles a day suits me well... Have you walked the Pembrokshire or Glyndwrs Way ????... Cheers

Vex. There's time for lounging and time for walking at a good pace. Make the most of all your days. Tempus fugit.
