This post pulls together all the blog posts for my 2013 Challenge, from sending off the application form, introducing the characters I’m walking with, designing our route, and the walk itself.

You can click on each post (it’s in chronological order) and the blog post will open in a new window.

 

PREPARING FOR THE TGO CHALLENGE:

THE CHALLENGE BLOG POSTS:

I’ve had fun putting this write-up together. I hope you enjoy reading it.

NOTE: If you are thinking of applying for the Challenge for the first time and would like to know a little more about it, or have anything you would like to ask, please feel free to get in touch. You can get hold of me by leaving a comment on this post. All comments are moderated by me on the blog, so if you leave me your email address in your comment I will get back to you by email. I will not publish your comment, as your email address will be on it.

That excellent fellow, Andy Walker, walked with Phil and me this year and you can find his excellent version of our Challenge by clicking HERE and looking for the menu on the left of his blog for TGO 2013.

It’s up to you who’s version you believe!

    1. Hi Al

      That's why I've made a homepage for the TGO 2013 Challenge - so people can use it as a base to read whenever they like and they can find it easily, as it's the first page that comes up when they click on the TGO 2013 label in the sidebar.
      :-)
      But going for a beer sounds good to me.
      I'm not sure if Phil will be doing a write-up this year. He was going to, but now I think he will need encouraging.

  2. Oo goody, I can sit down and read it in a oner, with a nice glass of red and some nibbles to hand. Make that a bottle...

    Phil really should do his own version, not only because it was His Challenge and I love his writing, but because reading the two versions so far have been like reading entirely different Challenges and so he wouldn't just be regurgitating something we've already read, it would be all shiny and new and exciting all over again! Go on Phil, you know you want to :-)

      Indeed - it's a fabulous gift. Dave's already doing the gardening and he's been back out on his road bike and goes back to work in about a week.
      I'm up to about four miles now, taking it steady.
      :-)

  4. Hello Alan
    I've just enjoyed reading this account for the second time. You had a tremendous Challenge. We both hope your recovery is continuing and that Osbert Sitwell isn't kicking you in the ***** from his grave.
    Martin and Sue

    1. Thanks, Martin & the Wonderful Sue.

      I'm sure the Fifth Baronet won't mind. He was, after all, a modern art lover. I'm sure that he'll think of my boot stuffing as performance art.
