Just a quickie to let you know where I am. I'm at home. I am totally knackered because I have walked 30 miles today, just checked it on 'where's the path'. Bike hike, my usual checking web site is not playing tonight. I have been walking flat out for almost twelve hours and my feet are tingling. As I was coming along the Trans Pennine Trail alongside the Humber, there is a bit which is impassable at high tide, so you have to take the alternative route which takes you half a mile off route through North Ferriby. Up untill then I was making good progress, but when I couldn't continue on the shorter route I knew I was scuppered.
My idea was to get to Hull for the last bus at 9.25, which would get me over the Humber Bridge for nothing. North Ferriby is a mile from the bridge, so what was the point of carrying on to Hull, only to be stranded. I was so close, it wasn't worth spending another fifty quid on a bed. I rang my friends to come and pick me up from the bridge, I couldn't walk any more.
I'll catch you tomorrow and post Day 7. I've had my horlicks now I'm going to bed.
