Tuesday 21st June – Patterdale to Grasmere Today I shall mostly be pogo-ing aggressively to “Walking Distance” by Buzzcocks. I had one of those moments this morning where you see how other people behave and wonder if you’re actually looking in a mirror – could that be how other people...

Coast to Coast 2011: Day Nine

Monday 20th June – Shap to Patterdale Today I shall mostly be bouncing lightly along to “Walking On The Moon” by The Police. The best day of the walk so far, by a long way – but I was absolutely shattered (again) at the end of it. I’m still not...

Sunday 19th June – Kirkby Stephen to Shap Today I shall mostly be wearing black and looking depressed with “The Hardest Walk” by The Jesus & Mary Chain. Although it wasn’t actually raining when I set out this morning, it did look black and horrible and the forecast was for...

Saturday 18th June – Keld to Kirkby Stephen Today I shall mostly be wearing my old school uniform in tribute to “Evil Walks” by AC/DC. I think it was the great Sir Isaac Newton who suggested that for every action there’s an equal and opposite reaction (feel free to correct...

Coast to Coast 2011: Day Four

Wednesday 15th June – Osmotherley to Richmond Today I shall mostly be trying to remember the words to “The Walk” by The Cure. I was absolutely steaming mad this morning, or like Gerald the Gorilla I was livid! But joking aside I had to calm myself before I went down...

Coast to Coast 2011: Day Three

Tuesday 14th June – Blakey Ridge to Osmotherley Today I shall mostly be silently mouthing the words to “Walk Away” by Franz Ferdinand. Wow! What a cracking day its been – some of the best weather I’ve walked in for a long time and some stunning views from the high...

Coast to Coast 2011: Day Two

Monday 13th June – Grosmont to Blakey Ridge Today I shall mostly be humming the tune to “I Walk The Line” by Johnny Cash. I slept a bit better last night. I awoke at 4:45 the first time, despite the clicking from the fuse box, and managed to doze for...
