Journeyman had an excellent idea over on the C2C forum. If you'd like to read it, it can be found via this link: http://www.coast2coast.co.uk/ubb/Forum1/HTML/001723.html

...With reference to his thread, here's a similar thread for walkers of The Dales Way. Anyone walking this path in 2006, who might wish to meet up with others who are walking at the same time, please post here.

As for us, we will be walking in mid-September -- probably departing Ilkley on 12 Sept, but at the moment that's not an exact date. We will update our post later with a more accurate date.

Having decided to try our hand at swapping the wilds of British Columbia for the wilds of Yorkshire we will be starting out from Ilkley on June 1st.

We plan a leisurely paced walk - arriving in Windermere June 7th (barring any wrong turns introducing us to the sights of Glasgow).

My wife and I are a couple of early 50's Canadians who are quite looking forward to marching through the unexplored regions of Upper Wharfdale (strange dialects, exotic drinks, bizarre rituals with sheep...true National Geographic stuff).

Assuming we emerge from Dale's other end (what an unfortunate description) we will then either pot about in Windermere or meander our way back to London.

If you spot two over-equipped walkers consulting an upside down OS map of Croyden while punctuating every sentence with an unnecessary "eh?" ... that'll be us. Be sure to say hello - and point us in the right direction.

Hello Hula-Otter,

The Dales Way is a picturesque walk and not too demanding - enjoy your walk and let us know how you get on on this site. All the best with your walk.

Argonaut & Journeyman - Thank-you for your words of encouragement. My wife and I are quite looking forward to the Dales Way as a practical test of our map & compass skills and marital compatability. (To be honest, I have always found the latter more difficult and dangerous to navigate).

And so, with Yorkshire-Canadian translation book in hand, we boldly set off in search of the first pub. Cheers!

Well, I was on the Dales Way today and I never saw you! I spoke to every couple I met just to make sure. No Canuks! I guess you must have been walking away from me. Never mind! You should have posted your stopovers and I might have connected!

I'm off on another Dales Way non stopper on Friday 9th June. I plan to start from Ilkley bridge at around 9am, that should get me going along Dentdale during the dark hours and hopefully arriving at Bowness, Saturday around 2pm. Thats the plan, however on these type of things, anything can happen, but here goes!
Dave.

Good luck Dave - a tough challenge at the best of times but the heat will make it harder.
