I've now walked almost 70 miles, and am approaching the town of Bodmin, southwest of Bodmin Moor, the first of many moors that we will cross on this virtual walk. Bodmin Moor, Dartmoor, Exmoor, then later the Yorkshire Moors.
There is no "official" route from Land's End to John O'Groats. As the crow flys, it's a 700 mile trip, but the way most people walk or cycle varies between 900 and 1100 miles. Averaging 20 miles/week, it will take me about a year to complete this walk.
I'm following Mark Moxson's blog about his walk, Denise has a cycling map which she's using. We're enjoying learning about the towns and villages we walk through, and stop once in a while to sample the local ales and ciders.
Bodmin Moor, here I come!
