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]

Post Blog Note

Mick here. Just thought I'd add some minor detail that Gayle omitted:

Distance walked: 1.5 miles
Height gained: about 250 feet
Number of whinges from Gayle: 4

Whinge number 1: shoe rubbing (within 200 yards of station)

Whinge number 2: hill climb (within 300 yards of station)

Whinge number 3: too hot (as a result of fine weather, hill climb and being dressed for winter)

Whinge number 4: pace too fast (as a result of hill climb and being too hot)

I hope that the whinge per mile ratio doesn't continue at this pace!

  1. Good luck for tomorrow and your latest jaunt. You've got all the wrong clothes, as the weather is going to be lovely ;-)

    Hopefully, I'll catch up with you around Easter. Look out for a green van with a brew on!

  2. Mick — you do want to get the end in one piece ???

  3. Hi guys

    I'm still really interested in meeting you in London if possible. How would I go about getting in touch with you?


  4. Typical woman, whingeing all the way. I should leave her behind at the earliest opportunity.

  5. That did make me laugh - I had to read it out to John!

    I'm sure gayle is just getting the whinges out the way before you start...

    Litehiker - I could take offence at your comment...but I won't as I whinged plenty throughout my jogle!

    I hope your 1st day has gone smoothly.
