Hi Chris50, I had planned to do this last year but had to postpone the event. I am certainly thinking of doing it this year. My start was to be Prestatyn and I hope to take 10 days. I expect to camp etc to. This is very possible I will join you! Regards torbs.

torb: yes, I remember you putting it up but hadn't realised you had postponed it. You may well overtake me if you're expecting to take only 10 days but maybe I'll speed up when I get used to it again! Anyway if you're around it will be good to have your company for a while

Hello Chris, interested in joining you on this, have you had any further thoughts about a schedule, or are you just intending to take it day by day. Personally I would prefer to stay in B&B's, ideally on an itinerary that keeps as much in sync as possible with you over the 2 weeks. Let me know what you think. John

Hi Chris - will you be able to keep us updated as you progress. I would be more than happy to join you for a section or two at this end

suz (Suzanne)   on 06/02/18 @ 16:00 said:

ummm, sounds good. I've penciled it in. Happy to camp/bivouac etc. Might not do all of it and might be trailing behind..

Chris50   on 06/02/18 @ 22:44 said:

JohnMM: well I'm going to take it day by day but you, of course, can arrange B&Bs for yourself. I've nothing against B&Bs and will probably take a few doing this walk but I'll also be taking a tent as insurance. It would be good to have your company if we can keep in sync, which I'm sure can't be too hard.
mirador: I'll try to keep in contact with you Graham but sometimes it's difficult with poor reception and poor battery charging facilities when camping! You're in Crickhowell so it would be from Hay southwards?
suz (Suzanne): Excellent; pencilled in for 2 weeks?

suz (Suzanne)   on 08/02/18 @ 8:09 said:

Yep, two weeks. With tent as B&bs really run up cost.

Hi Chris are you leaving your car at the beginning or end and how's the transport to get back. We're hoping to join you from the Sunday 12th?

mirador   on 21/02/18 @ 17:50 said:

Hi Chris - yes from Hay going south is the local bit for me. I have done the ridge line through the Blacks and lower Wye Valley quite a few times but the bits in between are relatively unknown to me. You should have a signal most of the time but conserving battery power will be a challenge! I will send my mobile number to enable texting

Chris50   on 22/02/18 @ 19:34 said:

Joal (Jo & Alan): We'll be catching the train to Prestatyn (tickets already bought) and then returning to Essex from Chepstow. Not sure exactly where we'll be on the 12th, maybe Kington or Hay. But will try to text you our progress.
mirador: thanks. I'll try to keep you posted, Graham.

Ultreia (Jo & Alan)   on 26/02/18 @ 13:09 said:

Hi Chris we are hoping to get to you on Sat tea. Looking at Kington you will have done nearly 100 miles in 4 days or have I got it wrong?

Chris50   on 27/02/18 @ 19:13 said:

Joal (Jo & Alan): We'll start the walk on the Wednesday 2/5/18, and if you are joining on Sat 5/5/18, we will have done just 3 to 4 days of walking and will be approximately at Llangollen/Trevor. However, if you mean Sat 12/5/18, then we'll be more likely be in Pandy/Monmouth. It would be great to see you whenever you plan to come! However there is no guarantee on these times & distances so I'll have to text you our progress!

Hi Chris,
Happy memories, as I walked from Chepstow 2006 and enjoyed really good weather. Take your time walking the Haterill ridge from Hay-on- Wye,Hay Bluff is just the start of this lovely setting. On the right Wales, left side England

Chris50   on 19/04/18 @ 22:51 said:

landranger68: thanks for your memories. Of course, we're also hoping for good weather and some lovely scenery. I've been told that it's a great walk and you're reinforcing that. Thanks

landranger68   on 22/04/18 @ 15:47 said:

Hi Chris,The second day from Bodfari will, be quite a challenge the 18 miles to Llangedla,but there is a Gweryd Lake Campsite a couple of hours before.There were no streams to cross and water consumption may be high should it be as warm then for me.You could divert to Calcine for a pit stop,but would make the day much longer

Chris50   on 22/04/18 @ 21:41 said:

Hi Keith, thanks for your suggestions. Yes, the day from Bodfari could be very long. Have found Gweryd Lake but didn't know of a campsite there. Also I can't find Calcine; do you mean Cilcain to the east of the ridge?

landranger68   on 23/04/18 @ 8:29 said:

Hi Chris,check the website at Gweryd. It was a Lodge that offered basic accommodation,but now it is just camping.Yes Cilcain it is.

Chris50   on 27/04/18 @ 13:00 said:

Thanks for this info Keith

torb   on 29/04/18 @ 16:48 said:

Hi Chris, cannot make the trip unf. Work has reappeared and I am training my replacement. The only day he is free is Wed 2nd. I had tried to rearrange things to get to Knighton for 3rd but this hasn't worked either so will have to leave it for later(perhaps this year) anyone want a ticket from WSM to Prestatyn tomorrow?

Chris50   on 29/04/18 @ 22:25 said:

torb: sorry to hear that. I was just about to text you to see if you were ready for the adventure. Anyway hope to meet up with you sometime.

landranger68   on 30/04/18 @ 21:31 said:

Hi Chris,
I really hope that the weather is as good for you as it was for me.I will be walking Offa`s Dyke in my mind and reliving through your daily blogs.The Devonshire Arms in Bodfari had grounds at the rear,but closed and the new Pub has extended which may rule that out.The Hatterill ridge from Hay to Pandy is to be savoured,but very exposed when bathed in horizontle rain with 60 mph gusts,enjoy or endure which i have many TEE SHIRTS

Say hello to Moel Famau as you pass Chris. This is on my bucket list. Enjoy ��

Chris50   on 01/05/18 @ 0:40 said:

The weather is improving and just can't be as bad as the rain and the cold the south-east has just had! So I'm optimistic .....
Thanks for your tips, Keith and I hope to be able to update you as to how we're getting on. I will indeed say hello to Moel Famau for you, Milvus.
Looking forward to getting going now.....
