Well, I'm back.. Later than I wanted to be, but that's ok.

They finally fired the 'problem child' at work who has been coming in late every day since mid October, and making my like miserable. Less over time now, but a normal life.

I've been following Mark Moxom's blog, "Walking Lands End to John O'Groats". He has descriptions plus a map. I've been using the distances he talks about, and have googled for information on some of the places he walked through. Hope it goes somewhere near your cycling route.

I've been trying to stay ahead of a cold all week, but I think I've lost the battle. Very stuffy and short of breath. I'll try to get back at it tomorrow, but it might be Monday.

Sorry you're having a rough week at work. I have th luxury of being retired, and am on a roll at the moment. I've started marking my route on a 1997 RAA atlas with large pages and a scale of 3 miles to the inch.

My incentive for this walk is to lose 20 lbs before our youngest daughter gets married next May. So far I haven't lost any weight, but my clothes are fitting differently, so I'm accomplishing something.

See you soon,
Gail

Isn't it wonderful to get some one-on-one time with one of your children? Of our 4 kids, one lives 30 minutes away, one is in Europe, one in Calgary and one in Nova Scotia, so anytime we get to see one of them is very precious.

Isn't it amazing that we are almost out of Cornwall? Devon and Somerset, our next 2 counties, are probably my favourite part of England.

Gail.

I am somewhere behind you. Problems this week not only with the rain (even here in Phoenix). but my computer was down, and that really set me back a bit.

A B&B with a beautiful English garden sounds wonderful?

Have you seen the BBC movie Ladies In Lavender? It is set in Cornwall and stars Maggie Smith and Judi Dench. It is one of my all time favorites, I have found myself watching it a lot since we started this walk.

I'm catching up...slowly.

I am using the Spark People fitness map as well as a publication I received from England on Alibris: Lands End to John O'Groats Cycle Guide by Simon Brown. ISBN: 13-978-1-58284-188-1.

I also go online and look up the individual towns we are traveling through, and read about the history, etc., and the check the weather for that area.

I found on Alibris the book you mentioned in your blog, and will purchase it next payday.

Good going, Denise. Aren't the place names wonderful? Is the map you are using on-line somewhere that I can follow it too?

Oh dear! Now you are ahead of me. I must have stayed too long in that last pub, and I will have to run to catch up!

I won't be meeting you on today's walk, only 2.8 miles.

Yeah, too bad about the rain... but I guess that's why the gardens are so lush. Coming from Arizona, you must find it very different. I actually resisted visiting the US south-west because I thought it would be ugly... surprise, surprise, I loved the colors and the openness, and can't wait to go back.

I love exploring the old cemeteries in England. My youngest daughter thinks it's creepy, but I enjoy reading the old inscriptions and understanding how many women died in childbirth, men in industrial or farm accidents, and children in epidemics. Very hard life back then, and yet there are also graves for very old people.

See you soon,
Gail

Didn't know that about Henry Vlll. Read about Mary Queen of Scotts, and Ivan the Terrible. I am working my way backwards through the kings and queens ( and czars) of the world.

Good day to catch up on some local history, since this Cornish rain is keeping us indoors.

I LOVE Cornish Pasties! There is a Cornish Pastie shop on the corner where I catch the bus to go to work. I eat there often. My favorite place. I can call ahead with my order, pick it up, and catch the bus. Great eating! You?

Good to see you on the road, Denise! Did you know that Henry VIII had a castle at St. Austell, which locals pronounce as "Snozzle"?

I love Cornwall too! Have you had a Cornish Pastie yet?

Heading north on A39 to St. Austell 52 miles away. I am loving Cornwall; could stay here forever!

Made it as far as Carland Cross which is where A30 and A39 meet. It's about 6 and a half miles north. I will look for a B&B and a pub, and meet you here, Gail.

I found you, and a cute little pub that is 3.10 miles away. I'll wait for you there. Change of Band-Aids, fresh socks, and a few cool drinks and we will be ready to head off to Truro, just 37 short miles (more or less)

Day 2. I can do this!

This is perfect weather for walking. I am still on B3315 and have made it as far as Trethewey. And I love it. But I will probably fall in love with every little town along the way. I'll spend the night and rest.

OK! I'm here.
Beginning the walk on a beautiful day in Land's End. The temperature is 61f with blur skies. Rain is predicted for October 6-8 so it's best to keep our rain gear close at hand.

Walk beginning at the corner of A30 and B3315

Total distance 2.13 miles.

Gail, are you with me?

Hi everyone. I am new to the team (sort of). I was a member several years ago when I did a walk from St. Petersburg to Moscow, Russia. Now I am ready for another walk. Earlier this year I completed the Transamerica walk on website 'tools to keep you active'.

I think a nice stroll through the British and Scottish countryside is just what I need..

Let's go!
