(It's Sunday after all, get your Countryfile and adventuring hats on.)
Who does it? Who wishes they could do it? Who wants to do it?
I want to do more of it. Covering expansive tracts of land eventually, but walking town to town at first. The U.K., to me, suddenly seems traversable, compact, within reach and yet a multi-faceted patchwork of differing regional identities, with variable landscapes and histories. I need to get out there!
So I'm planning walks, that will increase in distance progressively so as to condition me over time, to the nearby National Forest (13 miles there, a night in a hostel in the woods, day exploring the forest, stay another night, walk slightly longer alternate route home) - I didn't even know the National Forest was on my veritable doorstep! Later, a grander walk in scale: firstly a good 18 miles mostly down canal footpath to Birmingham (which, as a city, has more miles of canal than Venice) and a night there, then onto the birthplace of Shakespeare (not that I care too much, it's just a beautiful town) Stratford upon Avon, which'll take a few days and I'll camp along the way.
Have you ever walked for a few days or more to reach a destination? Do you camp or hike at all? What's the furthest distance you've travelled on foot? Let's talk adventure and endeavour.
