Hello!

It's very early to plan this, but I wanted to get the date in the diary for those who were interested. I'm intending to book my accommodation in October time to get the best options possible and to avoid being like Clive and booking some dodgy places at the last minute. Don't be like Clive :)

I'm planning to lead an expedition of six people along the complete distance of the Ridgeway, which is 87 miles. The walk will take place from Saturday 9 June to Sunday 17 June 2018. For those on the Hadrian's Wall walk, this route seemed ideal as it's a similar length, it's an historic route and we can tick another trail off our list :)

The trail is at:

The walk covers the North Wessex Downs and the Chilterns. Like the successful (in my mind) Hadrian's Wall trip last month, the walk is designed not to be too rushed so that we can enjoy the walk, whilst still feeling challenged. We will stay in accommodation each night near to the wall and we will try to stay in the same place, but that might not be possible. People might also want to stay somewhere to suit their price budget (whether posh or, er, not so posh).

For those who aren't very brave there is a baggage handler which can carry bags along the route. We will find lovely pubs and eateries to dine in every evening and Ramblers (well, by Ramblers I mean me) will print a certificate for everyone who finishes :)

I understand that some people may not yet know their holidays or what's happening in June 2018, but I'll run this as a first come first served type thing as that's the fairest. When you know you can come, put your name down!

I've realised that at the end of the week the 2018 World Cup starts, although that probably doesn't make much difference to anything.

Please post any questions :)

Julian.
