Leg 52 – 6 September
Starting at Laggan Lochs and Ending at Iinvermoriston
The Days Journey
Leg 52 18.1 miles 1075 feet.
It’s only rain.
As Mr Wilkinson has written a bit about today before I had finished my work (see below) not a lot to add really, apart from I met some lovely people, I met a Kiwi couple who were going End to end ie LEJOG and Dan who is traveling, well have a look at his face book page, https://m.facebook.com/Get-to-the-Border-challenge-2018-27…/
I had a 10 min chat with him, but could have sat down had a few pints and talked all night, good lad who is on a mission.
Right that’s me, I am giving Mr Wilkinson no more info about my walk when I finish so he can’t beat me to this blog type thing!
I am also getting better with Selfies. Not as good as a certain CK, who takes 558 a day, but I am getting there!
Track of the day two really, as, get this (days are running out) Fran the landlady from the Red Pump has chosen the first.
And with that theme, I get to pop in what in my eyes is a classic, but you probably won’t have heard it before, if not give it a listen, I first heard it in a bar in Dublin after a heavy night, it just blew me away.

Leg 52 and another 18 miles and over a 1000’ literally bashed out today by Stephen to Invermoriston……..the song of the day has to be ‘Here comes the rain ag…ain’…….Cag on Cag off all day…….on his own today head down and finishing at 2.45pm, ‘the machine’ is getting stronger and the will to finish is in his eyes……….Ste collected and shipped to the campsite for just after 3pm and some valuable time to do some washing as there appeared to be a smell of walking/running gear starting to prevail in the support van…..sun decided to show late afternoon to dry…….but you guessed it …..’Here comes the rain again’……..52 down…9 legs to go
