I feel the need to celebrate reaching the number 70 on the 10th April 2013. So on the 11th April I will leave by the back door of my home,turn right and continue walking for approx. 80 days & 1,400 miles.From............... Abergavenny to Chepstow, Bristol,Wells,Sherborne,Blandford Forum & Poole.Sorry but contrary to rumours I cannot walk on water its the ferry to St Malo France.From here to Mont St Michel before heading due south via Rennes,Nantes,Saintes,Bordeaux & St Jean Pied de Port.Now a steep ascent of almost 1,500 meters over the Pyrenees to Spain and on to Pamplona,Logrono,Burgos.Leon,Astorga to Santiago Compostela.Here in the Cathedral are the remains of St James one of the apostles of Christ.Still not quite finished its 4 more days to the "end of the earth" which is called Finistere.I will be walking totally unsupported for over 80 days and funding the whole trip myself,all donations in total going to LONGTOWN MOUNTAIN RESCUE.
