Came across a small group of Coast to Coasters yesterday bivouacking near Scarth Nick. They were on an exercise requiring them to complete the walk, carrying their own provisions, at an average of 3 MPH, ie 65 hours including stops. I was going to offer to accompany them on the last section but felt that their pace would slow me down!
I knew I should have stayed in bed.
Ha, Ha, Sorry SC,
I do get carried away at times with my passion for fast high mileage walking.
I hope I haven't offended you in any way, I have great respect for your input on this forum especially your given local knowledge and advice on the C2C route in your neck of the woods.
I know you just missed me last time, but it would be good if I came across you during my next attempt.
I have recently received information from a reliable source, that such a 65 hour crossing of the C2C, by members of Special Forces is within their capabilities.
If it is the case, (which hasn't as yet been confirmed) that the groups involved in the crossing ARE members of the Special Forces, then I accept that it is true, and apologise for disbelieving you.
