Les, we saw your note in Gregs Hut when we spent the night there (I think about 6 days after your visit) stating that you were not too good. Sorry you had to drop out, what a shame as I can imagine the mental struggle you must have faced in that decision. Hope you feel better soon!
Without trying to sound like I am rubbing salt in the wound... we made it! As first time long distance walkers carrying all our own kit (including camping gear) we completed in 19 days with 1 rest day, and I am bordering on astonishment. We were met with much shock whenever we mentioned to anyone that this was our first walk, but we still made it... Thanks to all who offered advice on this forum as it wouldn't have been possible without it!!
