I'm well aware of her age, and I'm well aware of how she can chat endlessly with people she meets.

She needs to do more walking and less talking! :lol:

:lol: :lol:
At the rate she goes, she'll be lucky to make it before New Year ................ I asked her when I met her, when she expected to finish, and I asked if she knew what she was going to do when she got there.

She had no idea on either.

Bettyhill this morning with 48 ml to go. That’s 54 ml since my last post obviously through terrain where there is no one to talk to. :D
It must be a very long dark night in that box especially with the drumming rain We’ve had the last few nights. Been bad enough having skylights here.

Excellent.
She should make it for Christmas then.

We still don't know what she's going to do the day after she arrives.
Cross to Orkney and Shetland?
Then what?
She either carries on, or has someone with a van to collect her and her trailer and take her home.

She'll have a long wait for the John O'groats to Orkney ferry, it only runs May to September!

Amazing woman.
I’d be tempted to sit on top of the cart and let it roll down the hill into JoG :D
