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]

Contrast (2)

K2CW Day 4: at around 4.30pm we arrived at the Travelodge just outside of Dartford. Within 60 seconds of entering our room, Mick took this photo:

Day 4 13Four minutes later, he took this photo, showing the kit explosion that had occurred (I particularly like the evidence of me in repose, so soon after entering the room!):

Day 4 14


  1. Brilliant! Lord Elpus has a good technique for trashing hotel rooms: He takes down all the wall hung pictures from their hooks and then uses the hooks to suspend his tent by it's guy ropes, thus drying it out wonderfully.

  2. Unfortunately, pictures (and thus picture hooks) aren't a big feature of Travelodge rooms. Fortunately, they do have good and proper poles suspending the shower curtains, so Wendy dried out nicely in the bathroom.

  3. looks very much like mine and Alfies effect upon well presented hotel rooms too tho in the second pic it would have been the dogs(Alfie) feet on the bed!
