Hi G430,
i Endured he Pennine Way some eleven years ago and out of 19 days, eleven were horizontal rain,with the only break was of five days across the Yorkshire Dales. I hope you have better weather,but don`t count on it.It has certainly gone out of favour,but as a challenge it is worthwhile and hope the Camp sites along the way are better now. Preferred start for me was Edale, There are some wonderfully wild and remote areas,where good navigation skills are essential. Best wishes

landranger68   on 06/10/16 @ 7:47 said:

P,S, This was a solo walk.

Kali22   on 06/10/16 @ 16:20 said:

I could be interested. How many days do you anticipate it taking. I also am a bit flexible around the timing but it would require me taking a bit of time off Uni

womble   on 06/10/16 @ 18:34 said:

I'd be interested; I too travel with a large dog so generally go for the camping option, but would certainly be open to dog friendly B&Bs. Will keep my eye on the invite to see how it evolves - can't really make concrete plans that far ahead.

Philtheetiler   on 06/10/16 @ 19:47 said:

Look up Rucksack Rose on Google, she did it a few years ago so worth reading her account

Mitch   on 06/10/16 @ 20:45 said:

i have done it before but a few years ago now but i could be interested in doing it again so like womble i will keep my eyes on the invite to see how it goes.

G430   on 06/10/16 @ 20:51 said:

Hello everyone! Great responses so far, thanks.
landranger68 - well done on completing the walk. Yes the navigating is the part I'm most dreading (I'm not very good at
It but I'm slowly improving) and another reason I want to do it with others. I hope for good weather also.

Kallika - That would be great if you can get the time off Uni, I think it will take around 2 and half weeks .

Womble - Would be great to have other dogs on the walk! What have you got?

Philtheetiler - Great thank you, will look her up!

Mitch   on 06/10/16 @ 21:02 said:

just realised i wouldn't be able to do it before June 12th at the Isle of Man prior to that.

G430   on 06/10/16 @ 21:18 said:

Ok Mitch, I just put June 1st as I had to put a date in for the invitation. I don't mind what date we do it , it's what works best for the majority. Summer would obviously be better due to the long daylight hours and the chance of warmer weather

landranger68   on 07/10/16 @ 9:39 said:

G430. This trail is a real challenge, with a large percentage giving up within 4 days,due to levels of fitness,weather and injuries.Planning is vital with an emphasis on levels of fitness as a group.Buy the National Trail book,and then accommodation which usually gives a very good idea as to how many days.
A.W.vowed never to be seen on any section again due to the weather,but i so hope the sun shines for you all

mattsmyname   on 08/10/16 @ 5:41 said:

Hi G430, hope you get to do this. I keep wanting to get some time off work when we have the long daylight hours. I would be interested but could only get two weeks off work. Will still keep an eye on the invitation. P.S. some of my favourite hikes have involved horizontal rain!

landranger68   on 08/10/16 @ 7:46 said:

Hi Matt,you will certainly cover some very long days as 264 miles is quite a way to yomp,especially over areas of Boot sucking bog and wear Gaiters or you could lose your boots

Sel   on 08/10/16 @ 11:05 said:

Hi Sarah
Would definitely be interested, had it on my wishlist for sometime. Retired now (lucky me!!) so date wouldn't be a problem as long as I had some notice to fit in with other projects. Sally

G430   on 08/10/16 @ 11:44 said:

Hiya Matt, yes as landranger says that would be very optimistic to do in 2 weeks and would meaning
Walking 20 miles a day and not allowing for bad weather/injuries etc but you could always do the
Majority of the walk with us & come
Back another time to finish it?

Philtheetiler   on 08/10/16 @ 11:52 said:

Just now trying to organise a 2 to 3.week hike in Norway but would be good to do this as well !

womble   on 08/10/16 @ 18:35 said:

Knowing Matt, he could probably do 20 miles a day, but I can't, not carrying camping gear!

Phil, you must be feeling better!

Philtheetiler   on 08/10/16 @ 19:37 said:

I am going to Scotland soon with a mate who has done this walk, so will have plenty to talk about on the journey

DaveW   on 11/10/16 @ 19:33 said:

I hope to Backpack the C2C in May. So may be good prep for The Pennine Way? Retired so time no issue but would need mid June start. Seems it could be 15-22 days. Walkers can also use baggage transfers and carry day pack? Should be able to assist with Navigation. I won't be able to be definite until about Easter 2017.

AnnM   on 12/10/16 @ 20:39 said:

Hi there. The penine way is really well marked so is not a huge navigational challenge vi would love be a co navigator and walk it again and Iin One go (I did it in 2 parts before)

Pebbles(Bea)   on 13/10/16 @ 21:08 said:

On my to do list... But would like to do the C2C first ;-)

Kali22   on 18/10/16 @ 19:14 said:

I've checked my uni dates and due to exams I really couldn't do it until 5th July. I'd really love to do it so if you're flexible on the dates then I'm in.

Mitch   on 10/11/16 @ 11:03 said:

if i was to do this then i could be up for it anywhere between June 12th and September 21st

keith2015   on 30/11/16 @ 22:13 said:

I did this walk in the summer of 1977, immediately after leaving school! I still have fond memories of it. Unlike Landranger 68 the weather was fine practically every day. I started on my own but very quickly joined up with some others who started from Edale on the same day I did. At that time it was possible to stay at youth hostels practically every night - though I believe there are more gaps now. This saved a lot of weight and made the walk a very sociable and tough but achievable challenge.

keith2015   on 30/11/16 @ 22:14 said:

If you are carrying camping gear I suggest you don't overestimate how many miles you'll manage in a day - unless all of your party are very fit, of course. If you push the pace you're likely to get people dropping out.

Montie   on 05/12/16 @ 18:32 said:

Would love to but sadly will have to wait until retired as this is our busy season..... Enjoy all going!

Cookieguides   on 05/12/16 @ 19:22 said:

Hi I would be interested in doing this but only available in August from 6th. If my dates fit in with others, let me know. Would be interested in meeting up to discuss further. Anne

G430   on 07/12/16 @ 11:28 said:

Hello all! In the new year, I'm hoping to arrange a get together for those who are definitely up for completing the Pennine way. I thought we could meet up for a walk/drink in the Peak District so we can discuss accommodation, individual capabilities etc so I will message those interested. Thanks

Josh410   on 22/12/16 @ 16:08 said:

Hi all - would definitely be interested in this and available for the meetup in the new year

Paulmouse    on 05/01/17 @ 22:14 said:

Hi all it's a fantastic walk, I did it when I was 11 years old, so many special memories, also done many others since then, I'd love to do the Pennine Way again but can't get that much time off, good luck with it all

Philtheetiler   on 07/01/17 @ 18:49 said:

G430: hi and HNY. THE calendar is filling up very quickly and I wondered if there was any news on dates for early meet up ?
Phil

Yorkie   on 08/01/17 @ 20:15 said:

It's one of 3 walks I've always wanted to do but work and finance has always got in the way. What would be the latest you would need to know by?

Ally & Dave   on 18/01/17 @ 17:11 said:

If you want inspiration,there is a race in at the moment called The Spine. It's a non stop race along the Pennine way, the winners expected to complete it within a 100 hours. There is also a shorter one 108 miles which the winners completed in under 30hrs. My partner did the latter one 2 years ago and loved it. Enjoy.

womble   on 05/02/17 @ 7:51 said:

The Penine Way is going to have to wait for another year for me; hope you have a great time.

Mick0181   on 11/02/17 @ 19:04 said:

Hey G430, im also doing the pennine way this year starting a little earlier and being a little ambitious and optimistic with my time scale but with a goal in mind im looking forward to the experience all the same

katharine@kcmail.fsnet.co.uk   on 23/02/17 @ 21:37 said:

Hiya - Nice to email, hope to join you for a couple of days

LoveEndures   on 05/04/17 @ 20:14 said:

Good evening all,
I'm a newbie here and am looking at joining as many events as i can. I'm liking the sound of this, but will only be able to join you for a few days if that's ok.

Mountain Heather   on 09/04/17 @ 18:37 said:

Hi Sarah,I'd love to join you on a couple of sections rather than the whole route. If that's ok with you, can you include me on the itinerary email, and I'll let you know when/ where I'll drop in. H x

Mountain Heather   on 09/04/17 @ 18:38 said:

Ps: I'm ok at map reading, if that's any help?

Carpe Diem!   on 09/04/17 @ 20:12 said:

G430: please send me the itinerary email too ...I can't do it all but would really like to come for part of it....thanks Sarah

mattsmyname   on 10/04/17 @ 18:32 said:

G430: Wish you and your fellow hikers a great time and will be wishing you all good weather. I have had to spend a bit of time spreading out my annual leave for this year and realistically cannot do this, might have to wait until my retirement years! Will look out for your photos

Dale   on 10/04/17 @ 21:48 said:

Hi Sarah, if you get the chance could you let me have your itenerary too so I can join in when you are doing the bits nearer me

Carpe Diem!   on 10/04/17 @ 22:54 said:

mattsmyname: surely you're already of retirement age?!

G430   on 11/04/17 @ 9:07 said:

Hello everyone! Of course I will send you all the email..
Would you mind sending me your email addresses please thank you

G430   on 11/04/17 @ 9:08 said:

mattsmyname: sorry to hear you can't make and thanks for the good wishes

Pebbles(Bea)   on 11/04/17 @ 14:14 said:

Carpe Diem! !!!!

Sel   on 14/04/17 @ 18:17 said:

Hi Sarah
I'm now doing this walk in September with a friend so won't be joining you all - look forward to the photos and seeing what I've got to come (or maybe not!) - have a great time!

Mountain Heather   on 15/04/17 @ 17:22 said:

Hi Sarah, thanks for sending the itinerary- I was exhausted just reading it! I'm going to join you on your first day but will leave you after you've done Kinder and start to head to The Snake Pass and Bleaklow (around Mill Hill/ Top of William Clough) . Myself and Kev are then going join you for the Hawes to Tan Hill day, but will only be going as far as Keld, as this will be my last day of the Herriot way. Hope that's ok with you?

G430   on 19/05/17 @ 11:22 said:

Hello everyone, just letting you know that I will be setting off on the 6th not the 7th of July now. Cheers and sorry for messing anyone about!

Rosie. B   on 15/06/17 @ 15:58 said:

Hello, Id love to join u on the 6th and 7th if that's ok. Do u know a YHA nearby I could stay night of 6th, or could u tell me the place we will end up that evening? Thank u, Beth x
