Mick set off from St.Bees yesteday Sunday 5th July at 6am. He over-nighted in Kentmere, and now 8.51am Monday is just a few miles off Tebay and the M6. He is going very well up to now and making excellent progress.

Yeah, Les he's going really well, 8.15pm and approaching Keld and halfway! At this rate he could go inside of 4 days, and most of the hard work is done. I think knowing that we will be watching is spurring him on. Come on mick were all behind you.

Message from Mick on Spot at Keld 21.22 "All is well". I thought he had stopped for a sleep rather than keep us up-to-date!

Mick is not too far off Reeth at 8.50am Tuesday. I think he is hoping to make Ingleby Cross tonight, then the final push tomorrow. Still going really well, obliviously determined and having the best crossing yet.

After a great start it doesn't look good, now on the A1M above Scotch Corner. Hope that you are OK.

Just seen that looks like he is heading for Darlington, the nearest rail station. Hope I am wrong, he does seem to have slowed after Gunerside on reasonably fast ground. If he has had to call it a day, must be something bad, because as you say Harland, he was going at a cracking pace up to then. Let's hope he was making for there for some repair or purchase and will get back on track where he left off.
Dave.

Ankle injury! - very disappointed, but the nature of the terrain made for v hard going in places. The chosen line may well be shorter, with less overall climb but it's bloomin' tough in places! - the high ground was much wetter than expected for July too. Full report to follow...
