WALKING WALES (FOR CENTRE POINT) – PART 5
There has been a lot of progress this week towards my goal of navigating across Wales in one week. Details below.
My friend and now fellow adventurer Duncan (host of The Spirit Pig podcast) has agreed to join me. It's going to be great to have company other than the sheep.
I've made my kit list. I'm trying to be as light as possible as I don't want to lumber a load of shit across Wales. I've purchased my bivvy bag. I'll be using this to sleep in, so I don't have to carry a tent.
Yesterday I went on a 10 mile training walk with my friend Guvner around Richmond, towards Kingston and back through Twickenham. The walk was good, except my feet started to feel sore. It wasn't until I got back that I realised I hadn't put my innersoles back in after washing my boots. Haha epic failure.
Today I planned day 3 of our route. Another 23 miles (roughly). Day 3 will mainly be following roads, as the national trails are slightly long winded in this section. We'll hit a pub at the end of the day for some grub and a beer (or five). The next day will begin our journey into the beautiful but isolated Snowdonia.
This coming week I'll be doing 20 miles training. I will also plan day 4 and 5 of the trip.
I'm going to film the trip, what do you want me to record/document?
To your success,
