The Road goes ever on and on; Down from the door where it began;
Now far ahead the Road has gone; And I must follow, if I can;
Pursuing it with eager feet; Until it joins some larger way;
Where many paths and errands met; And whither then? I cannot say.

[JRR Tolkien, Lord of the Rings]

Day 4 - Other Thoughts

I ran out of characters on my post about day 4 (it's the blogging device that I'm using) without giving the vital stats.

We walked 16.5 miles with something like 1500 feet of ascent all on easy terrain.

Since I tapped away to create the main blog post I've also taken drastic action with the little toe - I have sewn a piece of thread through it. fingers crossed that the thread is wicking and keeps it drained.

I think that my problem with the toe are two-fold - 1) I'm not accustomed to blisters and had forgotten how sore the little bastards can be and 2) I am a girly wimp with a low pain threshold!
