I’m off wandering again. This time it’s the Offa’s Dyke Path from Chepstow to Prestatyn – sometimes called the Welsh Coast-to-Coast. Along it’s 180 mile route are ten summits – some requiring a small detour but most conveniently located on the Path.
The activation times I have posted are – well – an estimate. If we get another heatwave, I will be starting very early and stopping for a rest when it’s hottest which will completely ruin that day’s schedule. Also, day 10 looks like it could be very busy so I may consider activating GW/NW-053 the previous evening and find somewhere suitable nearby to spend the night. I will have my ‘phone with me so I will self-spot if necessary.
Peter M0COP has kindly offered to meet me half way to re-stock me with food and other necessities. Nevertheless, I shall only have 2m with me this time. I’ve got too much else to carry for eleven days of walking.
Later on, I’ll be walking through territory that is very familiar to many and close to the centres of SOTA activity in the UK. I would be delighted to say ‘hi’ to anyone who fancies joining me on any of the summits for a joint activation. Otherwise, I look forward to working many of you as I head north.
