well I reckon if Dave got away for say half three he'll have covered another 12-13 miles which will certainly put him where he wanted to be... (not sure quite where that would be as my maps ar in the car as I've been following his progress all day at work! lol)

Nothing as yet, but I reckon Dave will have passed through Kirkby Stephen early doors and if on target will be on or approaching Nine Standards now. I think it'll start to bite back today...

...looking at it and the time at Shap - he may well have got as far as Smardale Bridge last night (at 16m from Shap and 78m in total) - this will put him well on schedule for Keld at around Midday

no tweet from Dave today... he would have had signal at KS, but would be wanting to press on maybe. Probably won't come into signal until near Richmond..? As I remember there is a brief area between Cringley Bottom and Reeth for signal (though mine's Orange) otherwise 'tis a low signal day... hopefully he'll be between Marrick and Richmond - Applegarthish?

no word today as yet...
The above Tweet is of course yesterday's schedule, so sounds like he intended to get to Richmond or maybe he sent that from Richmond last night...
If so, and he's been able to patch his feet up this morning and has not slowed too much he could be around Danby Wiske - this allowing for a later start and a 2mph pace - so still has a good chance of reaching his Day4 destination of Clay Bank top...
It'll be a mental struggle all day and be very tempting to put down at Lord Stones - allowing for the 3 climbs in the morning, but then adding that to an already long last day...
c'mon Dave...
