Well, we did it! And I owe our success, in part, to your blog. I read and re-read it and I learned some things that helped us to be better prepared. I thank you for sharing your experience!

My 13 yr old daughter, Lauren, and I completed the walk in 16 days. I know that sounds ridiculously slow to most of the readers on this forum but I'm not embarrassed. We've never done a walk before and we live on a flat island with no way to train for the Lake District. (By the way, my British friend, those are MOUNTAINS, they are not hills.) Considering our circumstances, we had an enormous success.

Please feel free to share our adventure on our blog:

www.walkmyfatass.blogspot.com

Thanks again....I'm already planning the next one.

I doubt you will have learned much from my blog...other than I am a stupid person,and I have a Dave.
But thank you for your kind words.
I shall go and have a read of your blog later.
WELL DONE to you and to Lauren.
Next year you can come with me and Dave and we will show you how to do it with only the aid of piece of string and a knitting needle.
Oh and a map or twenty.

OKAY you may all now depart and checkout the now FINISHED blog.
I may even turn it into a book. I won't charge extra for signed copies. I may even give discounts to all who can prove they have walked the walked. Unless they come from Yorkshire...then a prenium is required.

Happy Walking.
Now where did I leave my boots?
