Passed a bloke this morning on St Bees cliff tops finishing off after doing a East to West crossing and he said he had just passed the 8 day mark as he started to walk along the cliffs, he also said he passed a bloke a few days ago who was hoping to do a 5 day crossing which I took it to be you Dave,he said you told him you were behind schedule and you did not know if you could make the time up,sorry you had to abort the walk with your blisters.
