Way back when we planned this, mainly August, walk our chief concern was we might suffer sun stroke/heat exhaustion. We were kidding ourselves. This was, after all an English summer adventure. 2012 “enjoyed” its wettest summer for 100 years. We got soaking wet almost every day but then at least we had the luxury of being able to dry out in B&B’s every night. God help the poor campers out there. We salute you all.
In truth, regardless of the rain, swamps, bogs, hail and wind, we had a wonderful holiday which we shared with some really nice people along the way. This was an experience we will never forget. We are already planning our next long-distance trail and if that’s half as good as the C2C was for us, then it will be brilliant.
