Then get a ball of red wool and plot the route. Ha ha, all high tec here.
So, up to now it's Blackpool - Singleton - Elswick - Inskip - Bilsborrow - Longridge - Clitheroe - Barnoldswick - Earby - Silsden - Ilkley - Otley - Harewood - Collingham - Boston Spa - Tadcaster - Cawood - Wiston - Breighton - Howden - then pick up the Trans Pennine Trail to Hull.
Haven't the foggiest where I will be sleeping yet, except Breighton, I know someone who lives there. Hostels are almost non existant on this route, there is one at Earby but I am not sure what time I will be passing through. I will be on the lookout for cheap B&B's, farmhouses that take guests, pubs with rooms, or the odd barn where I can bed down in the hay :o)
I struck lucky today, I found a free door. It was round the back of Humberside Double Glazing, one they have taken out and replaced. They usually leave the half decent doors outside the skip and they usually get nicked during the night, which they don't mind because it saves them paying to dump them. Glad I saw this one or it might have disappeared tonight. The man said take it if you want it. Thanks very much.
A bit of good news today in the post, the test results for my bowel cancer screening samples have come back normal. Then the letter says that no screening test is 100% effective, so a normal result does not guarantee that you do not have bowel cancer. That's a bit confusing. Never mind, no more tests for another two years. Sorry if you are eating your tea while reading this. Toodle pip, off to print some maps out.
