Three of us will be walking the C to C from East to West starting on 12th September taking 12 days.
It's two years since we completed the Pennine Way so we are all excited and eager to go. We live in Spain and are avid walkers so fitness is not a problem. Our ages range from 56 to 64.
I agree with various comments feet have top priority and good boots and socks are paramount to prevent suffering. I've just changed boots to berghaus explorer ridge and using bridgedale trail socks - expensive but the best in my opinion and absolutely no problems!
We will be using Sherpa services and staying at B & B's as we enjoy fine ales and good wines when ever possible.One stop will be St Giles Farm at Catterick Bridge as Simon who is a family friend offers fantastic hospitality. I've already started to prepare using the two Harvey strip maps and cicerone guide making valuable notes on information received.
Any tips, guidance on what and what not to do is always appreciated.
