1 WEEK to go – the final countdown begins! A mixture of feelings – excitement/anticipation/apprehension all sorts of emotions flooding in at the moment but no doubt that is to be expected !
Been a busy week recovering from my twisted knee ( hope it is well on the mend now) and a visit to CRUFTS on Thursday which was a brilliant day – Oscar was fantastic and just loved all the attention and smiled to order at the many photographers clicking away at us.
Now it is hectic with gathering all my belongings together, sorting out the right kit, medical kit for both me and Oscar and a myriad of other things which have to be done before the end of the week – no doubt it will get done even if I go a bit short on sleep.
Had a wonderful farewell party last night at the Plough and Sail with friends – wonderful to have such support and friendship – it means so much.
The BIG DEPARTURE is on Saturday 14th March between 9am and 11am from the MOOT HALL ALDEBURGH. Refreshments will also be available on the terrace at the WENTWORTH HOTEL just along from the Moot Hall – all welcome.
A BIG THANK YOU TO ALL MY FAMILY ANF FRIENDS – AND STRANGERS TOO – WHO HAVE BEEN SO HELPFUL AND SUPPORTIVE DURING THE LAST FEW MONTHS OF PREPARATION. Now all I have to do is get on my bike and ride away on our journey !
You can see my approximate itinerary on the itinerary page on the website. It is only a rough guide as who knows what might happen en route but in any case my updated position will be on the map as well.
