    Sorry, when I said I was starting at 7pm - not on 17th or 18th but 29th July.

    Thanks Andy

    yes, its coming frighteningly fast and although we've had lots of time out on the route I'm not going to be that confident until i get more miles in before June. A couple of the original training group have already dropped out due to injury so we'll have to see how many are left standing by the time we get to the day!

    Cheers

    Martyn

    I've sent my letter registering an attempt on the 18th of June starting at 19.00.

    No going back now......

    You've obviously thought about that long and hard!

    I (and others) will be coming in (hopefully) just as you're setting off.

    It'll be like a relay!

    The DP machine should be coming in around then too. Alas I won't be there as I have to work but..... if you doing a Bg setting off on Saturday with a plan to Hit Scafell around midnight - 2.00am you may see me leading a group.

    That'll be a bit of a shock to the system, won't it?!

    I'm supporting L2 apparently so I'll see you at Dunmail, unless you are turning up earlier for the ambience.

    Very long and hard and I'm still thinking long and hard about it but at some point you have to just step off and do it.

    What's the batton? a squashed block of soreen malt loaf?

    You need to read my post again! but just for your older eyes
    Alas I won't be there as I have to work but....
    I'm leading (holds head in shame) a group on the Nat 3peaks.

    what are you going to do watch them come down Blecathra from your bedroom and wait at the end of the drive for them to set off and then join in)

    Really sorry to missing this great DP day out butneeds must I'm afraid.
