Dont take this seriously….because i dont !!

Wolds Way – Sounds like a plan

I had been planning on using this as a 3 day blitz to get myself ready for the TGO. I was on Facebook yesterday minding my own business when an old friend Mr Blister contacts me out of the blue asking me i want to join him on a 80 mile walk. It turns out that fate had meant we were both planning for the same trip.

Anyway a thread was started on the Peaceful Hiker to get the ball rolling and Pete Crawford flings his name into the pot. Looks like we have an expedition task force in the making…..!!

So within minutes i have the guide books out and memory map open to test distances. An hour later and i have a rough idea for a plan. Here it is…..

Day 1
Hessle to Shiptonthorpe 25 miles
Robeanne House

Day 2
Shiptonthorpe to Huggate 12miles
The Wolds Inn

Day 3
Huggate to West Heslerton 18 miles (+1)
The Snooty Fox Inn

Day 4
West Heslerton to Filey Brigg 23 miles
Filey Brigg Caravan and country Park

Optional Extra day for Mr Blister – Hessle to North Cave 13.5 miles
The problem we have is Robeanne House is the first campsite on the trail and wild camping i would of thought was a total no go on this trip. Looking at cheap accommodation the large village of North Cave has Albion House B&B at £25 per night, its a mile and half off the trail at the end of day 1, meaning the total first days walk would be a nice 13 1/2 mile. I would  stick to the 4 day route and meet up at Robeanna House at the end of day 2.

    I never knew there was a River Hull. You learn something every day. This trip is new ground for me. Should be good. I have childhood memories of Whitby and Scarborough. Be nice to go back that way.

    Yeah the Bucks off road looks miserable, I got the gpx file, and checked it on Memory Map. Not so much mega climbs, just lots of them, plus the Chilterns are a mud fest if we have a bit of rain. So I’ll most likely ride the single speed for maximum daftness!
