The Plan, update 2

Our walking year began badly, with no miles of coastline completed in the first three months of the year.

April through June fared much better, so that at the halfway point through the year with 282 miles under our belts we had pretty much regained our target of 50 miles a month.

Then the summer came.

The plan for the remainder of the calendar year is to complete the three west coast gaps that have been hanging over us since the first year of this three year plan, as well as push a bit further on the north-east.

With any luck we'll go into January with only 100 miles of Northumberland left.

We've some great walks ahead. I hope we can enjoy them rather than just focus on the goal of finishing England within fifteen years of starting.
