Walking Wales for Centre Point
I'm going to attempt one of my more adventurous goals in April. I want to walk the length of Wales. Starting in Cardiff and ending in Bangor, at the north of the country. The walk is 162 miles long. Don't feel too bad for me, as I do get to walk through the two nicest areas (arguably) in the UK: Breacon Beacons and Snowdonia. So I will aim to fit some waterfall diving and mountain climbing in. I aim to do it in 7 days, in fact I have to. It will be a race to catch my train from Bangor. My friend Duncan (SpiritPig.com) may be coming, however he is not definite so I'm fully ready to make the journey on my own. The other thing to add is that I will be sleeping wild each night without a tent.
I was planning on doing this trip for fun (Type 2 fun according to Alistair Humphreys), but I thought if I was going to put myself through it I might as well get some money for a great cause.
The beauty of this challenge is that it will also help me overcome my fear of being attacked in the dark, as part of my fear busting challenge.
The cause I have chosen is Centre Point. They provide housing and support of young homeless people here in the UK. I will be sleeping rough for 6 nights on this trip/challenge, but these unfortunate young people have to do it every night and in not so nice areas. This is something I would like to help alleviate, as much as I can.
