  1. Hi Steve

    so all things come to an end !!

    Although it was a small but nice talk on your day 58, it was fun to follow your walk by reading your blog and looking at your photos.

    Fine you found out more about your family history.

    At home again we wish you a lot of courage to pick up your ‘normal’ life again. We know how that feels !!!!

    Scotland was one great adventure for us. Look at our trip reports on the website. Probably we will return to Scotland/England next year.
    We read about your friend John who is walking the SouthWestCoastPath.
    For us, another options to choose ….
    And there are so much options to choose from….

    We wish you all the best and maybe we will meet again… on a path.. somewhere … sometime….

    • Hi Bert & Lucie,
      Thanks again … it was great walking with you that day, even if it was only briefly. Thanks for the link too, I have already bookmarked it.

  2. Hi Steve,

    All the very best for your future adventures and thanks for keeping us enthralled for nearly 3 months. Turns out it was more exciting to follow than the England team. It feels almost sad that its all come to an end, but i hope you will let us know when your next adventure starts, if ever!!!!

    • Hi Andy,
      Thanks very much. I’m glad you enjoyed following along and I’m sorry that my exploits were more exciting than the England team (but I was following along so I know what you mean). I’m fairly confident of another adventure even if I don’t know exactly when it will be. Thanks again, Steve.

  3. Hi Steve

    Just surfed in to your blog through the search function. I will be having a good root around in here at some point, but first let me congratulate you (a little belatedly) on the Lejog completion. It’s been a burning ambition of mine for quite a long time and sites like this just give me the itch to get out and do it.

    Fantastic site (including your memorial page to the soldiers of WWI) and I wish you all the best with any future walks!


    • Hi Aaron,
      Thanks very much for your kind comments. I’m glad you found my blog and I hope it helps to fuel your burning ambition for a LEJOG of your own. I loved the walk and I’ll definitely be doing another long-distance ramble. I noticed you have a blog as well so I will be checking that out very soon and adding it to my “links” page. Thanks again! Cheers, Steve.
