Well here we are then Puddytat, this is the final and last day of our mega trek. I know you don't want to go under the cover again but it's still raining out there. At least you kept dry yesterday when I was squelching along in soggy boots. It's a good job we had a hot room at this B & B and I managed to dry things out on the radiator. Now we are all set to go. We haven't a long day, in fact this is going to be the shortest day. I don't want a repeat performance of a 30 miler like I had last year, from Selby to the Bridge, oh no, they'll be no late finish this time. Right, time to cover up.
I have seen a lot of these conservation signs dotted around the entrances to fields, discouraging people to wander willy nilly through them. I must say, I would much rather stick to official footpaths, but if farmers and land owners let their stiles and access routes become overgrown, then sometimes I am forced to find my own way through.
I feel pleased that I have achieved this walk, I did what I set out to do, giving up was not an option. I will go through your comments and answer any questions in another post. I thank you all for spurring me on, I have felt that you, my friends, were all there alongside me. Many thanks.
The time has come ...
