LEJOG #2

I've taken delivery of The End to End Trail by Andy Robinson, published by Cicerone . It appears to be well worth having with loads of useful information about planning long distance walks and much specific info about the LEJOG itself, such as strip map routes for areas not covered by existing publications (e.g. between Offa's Dyke and the Pennine Way). His first section was along the North Cornwall Coast Path. Now, because I've walked most of the SWCP before, I wasn't planning to do it again (albeit in the other direction) as I felt that an inland route would be quicker. However, it is such a glorious walk that now I'm wavering. His daily mileage for a two month schedule is greater than I'd envisaged for myself, particularly as the SWCP is hard-going at times. I have in mind the stretch between Bude and Hartland Quay which is a day long series of switchbacks, about ten of them, I think. Still, it's my LEJOG and I'll make my own decision (but maybe not just yet).
