A Pennine Wayfarer's Diary
Here it is, my Pennine Way diary. This is as I wrote it: I haven't tidied it up or amended it, apart from a few really incomprehensible bits. (Be fair - most of it was written in the pub!) Each day links to the next so you can start at the beginning and work through it; alternatively just dip in to see what I've said about you. :-)
Each page also links to the pictures I took that day and you can navigate through those galleries separately or access them from each diary page. Enjoy!
I wrote this diary to capture my memories. But if you are thinking of tackling the PW, I hope it gives you an insight into the ups and downs of Pennine Wayfaring, both physical and mental, and inspires you to get out there and get your boots dirty.
Head for the hills!
