About bloody time bro! (You obviously haven't had a signal for the last two months! Here's my list... (by Karen & Mick)
Only 1 pair of boots for me, plus new trainers, new waterproofs, a tent, a new ruc sac, sleeping bag, roll mat, inner, 3 prs. socks, leggings, stove, pan, and a watch! Transport costs -don't even think about it!
was it worth it? You bet it was!!!!!!!
Aha! The stats are up - I am amazed you dont have itchy feet! I will be up doing some Munros again soon (plan is to try to finish them next year...) so will let you know when so you can stretch your legs :) (by Andrew)
Two years ago today. Still proud of you Dave :) (by Andrew)

Coasting Round Britain

30th March 2013 to 12th July 2014
Grimsby to Withernsea - The End (63)
5630 out of 5630 miles completed

Kit

On my LEJOG Trip I carried too much weight, I weighed it once during the trip and it was 56lb (25.4 Kg) including food.

My aim this trip is to get the weight of the pack down to 10 Kg, excluding food. I don't think I'll quite manage this.

Whilst I can get this weight down further I am compromising to have some level of comfort.
