Keep thinking of you!! I see that you are at Edale YH tonight. What a great spot and Youth Hostel. If you see Joe Hardy, the Manager, please give him my regards.
We leave Lands End in 11 days time and panic is starting to set in - but I guess you know all about that. Looking forward to a sing and catching up with your news at The Tass in Edinburgh.

Keep up the good work


Many thanks for a great week of walking, companionship, music, wind, rain and bog. I felt very proud to be (briefly) part of such a great project. Thinking of you all as the rain beats down. Keep up the good work, love, Penny
