The planning for this route has been underway for a month now and things are starting to take shape. I will be doing this in the back end of August 09 with my fiancee. We are planning on a nice easy 6 day walk averaging 15 miles per day.
The plan is to go East to West, the thinking behind this was that we didn’t want to end the walk in an industrial landscape. We have decided to use mainly bunkhouses for the trip with it being the other half’s first big walking trip. The accommodation plan is all but done and just needs the bookings confirmed.
I have sourced the maps from my local libary along with this guide book which had made planning the trip much easier.
One thing i would like to do in this trip would be to update my blog with a daily report. I have found a new laptop PC which is tiny but very expensive. I am still trying to justify the price tag though.
Next thing to plan is the kit list and cash for the trip.
