Thanks for that Roy, the others were tending to exagerate a little
We shall be be bringing adequate survival supplies as we do travel on the M60 you know so have vast experience of multi hour short distance travel.
Yes my wife does know of my intention and says "Ranulph Fiennes, Alcala, phooey what a wimp" we would have persevered much further than that, remember, you are talking to 2 people that survived the day trip to Gomera last year
and that had to start 2 days before due to the bridge out situation
Anyway, to have our winter fix at LG we would quite willingly walk and are prepared to eat any natives or ex-pats along the way, with a nice chianti of course
