Making Progress!

Although there is an awful lot still to do it feels like we are getting somewhere on two fronts. Firstly, if you look at the Around The Coast section of this website you will see that has been considerable activity.  It is partly to learn how to do this website malarkey before we go, but also so people can see what we have been up to over the last four years when we disappear off for long weekends.  We have completed about 3/4 of the coast – essentially all the way from London to Edinburgh (the long way round!) but with a couple of gaps on the south coast.  We have done over 4,800 km and have taken a fairly leisurely 73 days (although that does include a number of “part days” at the beginning and end of longer trips or where we were filling in “gaps”.) There are links to Christine’s thoughts at the end of each day although these are incomplete – she is trying desperately to find where she “filed” the others.  These have not yet been properly proofread so apologies for typos and inadvertent spilling mistooks!  There are also links to the routes on Bikely.com if you want to see where we actually went. The other element of progress is on clearing up the house ready for letting out (so that we have something to live on while we are off enjoying ourselves!)  As we have lived in the house for nearly 18 years and neither of us are the tidiest of individual (stop sniggering at the back!) there is quite a lot to do!  However, we ARE getting there!  There have been several trips to the “dump”, Oxfam shops in Reigate and Epsom are getting significant volumes of new stock and the dustbin men do not know what has hit them!
