For those of you that may have been terrified by the plot of Whinlatter Pass on Plot-a- Route ....
"we're all going to die !!"
Note the much gentler / different scale version from Google Maps ...

However i suspect " we're all going to die" still applies ...... :lol:

On the LEJOG Julie and Cally provided the power to boil the kettle each morning from 0630hrs for that essential cup of coffee.
Is anyone else planning to provide that service on this trip ...
To be honest my only hot water daily requirement is hot water for coffee or porridge .....

I can bring my Trangia ... ( its a gas one ) ...

but ........ :wink:

Hoping there is electric in the caravans and a kettle. Tea bags and a mug hidden in my bag. :D
There's no such thing as a tailwind.
It's either a headwind, or you're going well.
