Coast to Coast 2010 - Day 10

Reeth to Richmond - 14 Aug

Any regular reader of this blog will be aware that I rarely describe routes in detail. I leave that to the experts who publish guide books. Despite the obvious benefits, I am not carrying one having judged each of the many too heavy an item for my pack.

I have read two regarding the Coast to Coast - Paul Hannon's and Alex Steadman's, and browsed through others. However, I do not recall any that mention, nay more, highlight - a growing feature of this walk that sets it apart from any other national type trail that I have completed - the social side; meeting and sharing the experience with others along the way. It's quite incredible and adds temendously to enjoyment of the journey, and I should like to add, whatever the weather.

Today's walk was in glorious weather. Probably the easiest section of the C2C at 11 miles in a leisurely four hours, passing the time of day with Coast to Coasters along the way and at the end of it in Richmond.

And one of my sons, Bryn, arrived safely this evening to walk with me over the next five days and join the party in The Wainwright's Bar in Robin Hood's Bay next week.

Just to let you know Brian, you're doing the right thing with your blog because currently this is the one I look forward to reading most. Nice to hear that some of your family have joined you for the future celebration.... what a great idea. Enjoy.

Hey Glyn,

Don't pay too much attention to what I write. There's loads of pubs and shops - more like saundering down Midsumner Boulavarde at MK. You'd love it !

Love, Dad

Martin, J,

Thanks. You'll have gathered that the network signal is intermittent but not the fun.

Regards, Brian
