I found the following on one of the other forums on this site. Having walked the Pennine Way the account of that part of the walk is excellent and worth a read.


"Seems to be a number of questions on walking Lands End to John O Groats, LEJOG.
Distances fitness levels, age ability and so on. Myself and my wife Marilyn walked the big one linking up mostly long distance paths.
Full details and a free e-book can be found at www.ukendtoend.com.

We are Australians who visit the UK regularly on walking holidays. This we agree was the greatest experience you could imagine."

Hello Harland
Thank you for your kind words and enthusiasm with our site. Marilyn was the author and I was the photographer. We agree that the Pennines was the most challenging and rewarding once completed. Something we will always cherish...
best wishes
Phil Slater

I have nearly finished reading your journal but one questions is bothering me, "when did you start at LE". Cos you seem to have had an awful lot of rain, snow and hail. I know its Britain but I reading it I did feel sorry for you.

Hi Grumps,

I Phil,
it's not cricket, it's walking
i think that our cricket team have been resting on their laurels since last year to long,
unless they are like me once they have achieved some thing,once will do.
i am getting lazy put on to much weight
maybe they did the same.
you can't take it away from the Aussies though, they have done well
best wishes for the new year to you both
