Good point.

Lounge Lizard is a bit of a bell end though.

Yes, I just might have a year away from this site, in which case I will be back around May 2010. Bye.

I miss Norman. As rude as he could be sometimes, he could also be really supportive. When walking the C2C was just a dream I had been simmering on the back burner in my brain for a decade, I dared to post my first post on this site and Norman was there. I was terrified before I posted my first post. But instead of making me feel like an idiot, his posts gave me human perspective on the endeavor and helped me believe that I could walk the walk. All the posts about boots and compeeds and b&b's are important, but Norman's posts helped make this site a community of people with diverse interests and a wicked sense of humour.

This year I have found it particularly difficult to hit the trail on a regular basis. I have taken on several new posts and increased my work 3x. I am hoping to use the C2C as a "reset" button and a reminder that I need to take better care of myself.

I am playing with the idea of doing the LEJOG over four summers: 1) Land's End to Wales, 2) Offa's Dyke to the beginning of the Pennine Way, 3) the Pennine Way into Scotland, and 4)Scotland to John O'Groats. The fear of failure would convince me to work out more consistently. I imagine the LEJOG is not as beautiful as the C2C, but it would earn me bragging rights.

Take care of yourself.

R.

Not if you take four years and four separate visits.

Unless you want to "brag" (hardly a worthy motivation for walking) then don't waste your time.

So many superior walks on the planet...

I should imagine the scenery and terrain could be varied, and all stunning in its own right, as long as you choose your path carefully and avoid towns/cities/industrial. Unless you HAVE to stick to a generally 'accepted' route to claim success/completion of the LEJOG?
