We finally got to the finish yesterday after taking a tough (!)18 months to get to this point! Obviously we haven't been walking non stop for 18 months(!!), in fact our version was completed over one weekend and various individual days and was probably more like 100 miles due to minor diversions and combining one small section of it into a day's circular walk.
|just about to get the first view of Windermere|
We were all pleased to finish our challenge but it puts it into perspective when I heard some friends have just completed the Pacific Crest Trail (2700 miles - well done Neil and Tanya!), in approx 6 months. When we were having our celebratory pint at a pub in Bowness I was thinking maybe we need to speed up a bit on the next one....?!
|Rob, Janet and Abi - happy hikers near the finish!|
