How far was it

Just a quick note. Worked out the mileage on
Day 1 Blackpool to Bilsborrow 19.0
Day 2 Bilsborrow to Clitheroe 20.3
Day 3 Clitheroe to Earby 13.2
Day 4 Earby to Ilkley 16.1
Day 5 Ilkley to Bardsey 18.1
Day 6 Bardsey to Selby 20.3
Day 7 Selby to Humber Bridge 30
Total 137 miles. Average 19.57 miles a day.

Today I am doing nothing, my right knee is a bit swollen which is making me hobble a bit, other than that just a bit tired. Tomorrow I get the house in order because my nephew Adam and his wife Gemma are coming to stay for a few days, with their two little girls. I hope the weather stays nice for them, we can have some cheap days out locally, a trip to the seaside for the little ones. It will be something diferent for me and them, I'm looking forward to it.

  1. So impressive - well done! Get that knee back to normal before you consider any more distance hiking.

  2. Such an impressive distance and average. Have fun with your relatives.

  3. Fabulous achievement. Makes me want to do something similar. Have a good time and take it easy.

  4. Fantastic feat and fantastic feet! Have a rest now and enjoy your visitors.

  14. How impressive- especially the 30 mile day! Takes you back to when people thought nothing of walking 4-6 miles each way to the knee and enjoy the visit!
