We plan on trying to stay in hostels and camping barns whenever possible, with a few B&B's thrown in wherever necessary.
I might choose to camp more often, but my friend has a hip injury and is not certain she could carry the additional weight for camping gear. Even if it's just the mental thing. I know the walk is possible. She's never done an LDW. Her nervousness wins over my whimsy.
I will be happy to a softer bed and hot cup of coffee in the morning.
Thanks for the warning on Cross Fell. Poor bloke. I have thought I wouldn't mind dying with my boots on, but I'd rather be looking up at the stars than down a mine shaft.
What are the highest summits?
