- Snack food and lunch for
the day of the walk (but Andrea will provide some brownies and cookies)
- First aid kit or plasters
etc for blisters. I'll have a first aid kit, but (number of people)*(2
feet / person)*(blisters/foot) is a large number...

I have containers for 60L, but if it's hot we'll drink a vast amount.

are sleeping in our house:
sleeping bag, sleeping mat, towel.

sleeping bag, sleeping mat, towel, tent. We have two 2-person tents

or whatever). We will supply salads, crisps, potatoes, garnishes etc.
We will supply a light (cereal) breakfast on Saturday morning from
about 6:15 to 6:45, for everybody doing the whole walk.
- Booze for barby or soft
drinks. We will supply 2 polybins of beer, several bottles of wine,
and some soft drinks, but it may go fast.
Transportation (items in red
underline: please phone or email us asap about these):
- The walk starts and finishes
at our house
you are only doing part of the walk,
see this page for approximate intercept
times so you can meet up with us.
- You can get to our house
by car or train; we should be able to ferry people from the train
station to our house (it's only 10 minutes walk away). Please
advise us when you are coming and how. (NB Andrea and
I have Friday off work. If you arrive in time, how about joining
us in the pub for dinner?).
