back again!
just back from a nice 17 mile walk with full kit (alfie now sleeping!)
so i thought id try modding the blog some more,
Google latitude seems to be able to pinpoint my position on google maps when i access google maps from my phone i should be able to update and make my position visible to anyone who may want to know during the trek, this seems to be a handy and potentially life saving addition if everything goes tits up!
gadgets are good!


  1. Andy,

    Just been reading your blog and the links to other's starting the LEJOG next April, well here's another one. I set off from LE on 17-5 and due to a limited time schedule (45days - then back to work) I will be travelling on roads canals the WHW and GGW.. I am collecting for Special Olympics and Diabetes, and myself have an ausristic son. Look forward to seeing further blogs as you countdown to the start. (Also got a belly to lose!!)

  2. Hi Russ,thanks for the link to your blog now added to my list, will make for fun reading when i'm lying in bed with exhaustion after my walk!

  3. Andy, Sorry for the confusion, I actually start my walk on the 17th April 2010 (Saturday), so the intinerary on the blog should be correct from where I am and when. I have looked all around your blog, but can not find a date when your starting, aplogies if I have missed it.

  4. Oops your right my bad!
    My start date is April the 11th! so by my estimate you should catch me fairly quickly! probably by bristol with your more direct route and my planned 7th day rest days, have to keep in touch via the blogs to see where we all are!
