A Blog about the walking activities of Mick & Gayle, from short strolls to Big Walks, interspersed with other random thoughts about things outdoor related.
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]

Did I mention the dust and dirt?
I haven't managed to get myself quite as filthy as I did lying under the shady tree on Day 1, but dust and dirt is everywhere and everything is ingrained with it.
The above photo is the sink after the first rinse of my socks, after just 2 days of desert wear. Now that's some dirt!
It's a dangerous business, Frodo, going out of your door [...] You step into the road, and if you don't keep your feet, there is no knowing where you might be swept off to. [Bilbo to Frodo, JRR Tolkien, Lord of the Rings]
