I've been totally humbled, and shall now retreat to my shell. It will certainly be a long time before I recover from this onslaught.

Oh though it is great to see how a your mind works, even when you lose you try to twist it so you try to save face, get a silver star and place it up on your knited jumper and pat yourself on your back and be proud of your self for at least trying.

the point I am making is you canot say you have done the coast to coast unless you carry your kit, next people will be doing it in a taxi.

if this is how you do it dont say to me you have completed the walk, all you have done is completed the walk while being carried by somebody.


That's complete and utter rubbish, and your analogy of doing the C2C in a taxi isn't WALKING anyway.

Walking is walking, whether you carry all your kit or just a bottle of water and a map, if you're putting one foot in front of the other you're WALKING. If you walk all the way from St Bees to RHB, you've completed the C2C on foot, by WALKING.



I couldn't agree more, Rainbow. Everyone defines what is a challenge to them anyway. The C2C isn't 'meant to be' anything, other than a good walk. Some people see it as a challenge, whatever way they choose to do it, others just as a way of spending a holiday. There is no'right' or 'wrong' way to do it - AW was quite clear that was his view when he first proposed the route.

just having a go is better than sitting in the easy chair all day or though some people seem to spend more time on this site than they do walking

No need to get out if they could put the C2C and other LDPs on Wii. We could walk in the comfort of our living rooms, packs and trekking poles optional.
