I'm starting from Bowness on Solway, walking Hadrian's Wall to The Sage Gateshead. From there I head down on the Derwent Walk, C2C and Durham Dales Challenge route to pick up the Pennine Way at Middleton in Teesdale. Follow the PW down to Haworth where I arrive on 5th May.

It is a sponsored walk for the Cystic Fibrosis Trust and I've got the backing of the eternally lovely Miss Agutter:

Nick Mac, Robbie, Fellwanderer, Tomread

My absenteeism has made me miss out on some good chats the last six days ! But I do have a good excuse. My wife gave birth to our third child on the 20th of Jan and unfortunately all did not quite go according to plan. Our son is healthy and a perfect specimen, my wife however had some difficulties after the birth and has been in hospital up to today. At long last everyone is at home and my wife is well on the road to recovery.

I was really happy to read Nick Macs posts with itinery for next April and May, we shall most certainly lift a few glasses in the evenings where we are in the same place. I've not checked, but it would be very fine if Robbie was around as well.

The events of the last few weeks pushed the PW a little in the background for me, but the excitement is nevertheless mounting with each week that passes. I have also read TomReads excellent internet journal and admired the many football shirts worn along the trail. My eldest son and I are also big fans and have an extravagant collection of Eintracht Frankfurt shirts. I'll be packing one for the march into KY.

I also decided to the walk over three weeks rather than two because I'm fortunate enough to be able to arrange the time off work without it being problem. A 14 day walk is a challenge, but many people in the Forum have managed the timetable. Whatever ...

Lets keep in touch through the Forum and count down the days together and, Robbie, lets hope the weather picks up for Kinderscout.

Iain

Iain,
Congratulations on the bairn. I'm counting down the days until the 'holiday', as usual all my friends think I'm mad (something to do with the holiday not involing Spain and Sun) but as last May proved you can get just as burnt in the Pennines as the costa's.

Looking at Fellwanderers itinery it looks as though he will be the knackered one in Malham. At least he is missing the the walk from Newcastle to Wallsend (the worst bit of walk it has ever been my misfortune to meet).

Congratulations, Ian - glad things are looking better.

I didn't think the bit from Wallsend to Newcastle was that bad - at least, not as bad as I'd feared. It was surprisingly quiet - quieter than the military road!

It was a nice and quiet Sunday morning, but once you have seen one industrial unit you've seen them all.

I think the best part of that days walk is the Big Lamp bewrery, with it's fine selection of ales.....

I would like to add my congratulations too Iain. You've done well to get a 3 week pass just some 2/3 months after the birth!
I can report excellent winter conditions in Cheshire this evening, snow, and I'm sure Kinder is looking a picture!
All the best to you and your family,
Robbie
