Whilst I was preparing for my own Land's End to John O'Groats Walk I 'met' through the good auspices of Mark Moxon's wonderful site a chap the other side of the pond who was also preparing to do the same at roughly the same time as me.
His name was Daryl and it turned out that Daryl, a naturalised American, started out in life as a Brit in good old Bighty! Daryl loaded all his maps and B&B lists onto his PDA and used that to get him from one end of Britain to the other.
His was a different walk in character to mine, but his tale is laid out splendidly on his new website He was 63 years old and set out with his boots and PDA and had a brilliant time.
I have just spent a wonderfully entertaining day reading through it and I recommend it to you all as a great read.
I will also add Daryl to my links section 'Great Places to Visit' so you can read it in chunks easily if you wish.
