Ready for the off - will it all fit in???????

All final preparations are now complete. Bag is packed, how come 13kg suddenly fells so heavy? A few additional items have found their way into the bag, but just wondering should i include any specialised equipment to cope with the ash cloud. Mask etc... Leaving home at 7.00 tomorrow morning and hope to reach LE by 12.00. Will then hang around signing the book,taking photos,sarnies etc to about 13.00 and then head off. The planned walk is 18.5 km to Penzance,approach Penzance from the south along the coast. Weather looks promising so, as long as thet don't close the motorway tomorrow due to the cloud then all will be well.


  1. Wotto Russ little sis here. Just wana wish you all the best for your walk. Hope the weather stays good for you. When you've done this I can think of a little walk in the mountains you could do (everest / himalayas). Hope the blisters will be minimal and the views fab.
    Love Kirk

  2. That quilt will never fit in :-) All the best mate!


  3. Hi Russ,

    I'll be watching your progress with interest - you're following my little brother, Andy, and his dog, who set off last weekend.

    Hope all goes well.

  4. Hi Russ, Sorry I did not get this message to you before the off. I wish you all the best for your walk of a lifetime. Hope that Michaels Mount looks as good as when I reached Penzance. Just take one day at a time and enjoy them all. All the best


  5. Just caught up with your 'start' post.
    Good luck Russ - have a fine time!

  6. Good Luck Russell - just think of all the food that you can eat and you won't put on a pound with all that walking you are doing - now that is a great incentive!! Keep safe from Lynda - Iain's pal!
