Now this is a classic troll. (not my fault though)
To c2cer, I respect your opinion and this is my last post, so please cancel, or ban, or destroy my account, no objections.
To Ruth, you made a very strong point with your list.
Why people want to make c2c, because they want to see deforested hills, or flatland?
What is so special about that hike? 190 miles may be extremely boring journey.
I think that if you make it, you feel as you conquer the whole country, with your boots wet from both seas.
Returning the favor of original discussion. Please look at this link, it may be a possible solution:

As I said on an earlier thread the Countryside Commission undertake a regular survey of national trails. Although this does not included the C to C the survey includes all trail users rather than trail walkers. At some survey points the CtoC crosses the PW and the CW so coast to coast walkers are surveyed. From chatting to people on these surveys there is a general difference as to why people choose to do the different trails. The PW is mostly often seen as a "challenge", ..... a test, a chance to find out ones capabilities etc etc. The CW is a chance to see another area .....to visit the moors and the sea, to see different scenery. The CtoC however, is most often viewed purely as a chance to walk across England. (I make no comments about the replies, only report the results of the surveys). Americans are far more numerous on the CtoC than on the other walks. This, they often explain, is because American trails tend to be remote and difficult to access whilst ours our reasonably easy to reach and of a reasonable length. They also like the thought of "walking across a country". So C2C192m2010, could I suggest you locate a local American site about the CtoC where you should find sympathetic answers to your very American questions. If you are a troll ... well done, I quite liked it. If you are serious you must accept that the English are fundamentally different in approach to you and you have met (some of) our typical cynicism. I am afraid I wind up Americans something shocking. I have seen them photographing a water point believing it to be Robin Hood's grave. Not that I would have told them this ....... As for telling them that puffins have peculiar shaped beaks because they keep getting stuck in cracks on the cliffs and have to be pulled out by volunteers ... it never crossed my mind.

have anyone of you read "mein camp"

I did not think it was a diary of his wild camping.


the way I read it ,it was a dream to free the working class people of Germany and that is how the working class looked on him as their savour.

just the same as the working class in England to-day would look up to a man that promised to destroy the people who are fleecing this country
then again I could be wrong I generaly am

Mein Kampf is allegorical.

It's really the tale of thousands and thousands of walkers destroying the countryside of northern england ; we await our saviour. Fancy a job ern??

An interpretation I find hard to accept. The aetiology of his ideas were formed, I believe, whilst meditating during a wild camping expedition on the eastern face of Catstye Cam. It is an attempt at philosophical appraisal of the effect that the invention of dehydrated meals would have on the proletariat. Hence the initial omission of the "f" in the title .... only subsequently added by irate coast to coasting renegades from Shropshire
(I've always wanted to use aetiology in a post ... even if its not the correct word)

Wanderlust, the eager desire or fondness for travelling and wandering, was very important on the continent in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries, keen exponents of it being Richard Schirrmann (1874-1961), who opened the world's first Youth Hostel at Burg Altena, Germany 100 years ago, and Adolf Hitler (1889-1945) . I read a book about Scherrmann once and learnt that he allowed the German Youth Hostel movement to be hihacked by the Hitler Youth for some years, but perhaps he didn't really have any real say in the matter.
