Land's End to John O'Groats the Hard Way

A 1,500 mile stroll through the UK in spring 2014

On 23 October 2014, Adam Dawson gave a talk about his recent Land's End to John O'Groats (or "LEJOG") hike, which took him via the Three Peaks from Britain's most southerly extremity at Lizard Point, to its most northerly, at Dunnet Head.

He camped almost every night and took the unusual step of dispensing with paper maps and instead relied entirely on electronic maps loaded onto his GPS-enabled iPad.   And in the process, he raised over £11,000 for the Scouts.

The slides below show the highlights of his journey, and also some of the perils - number one on the list probably being Giant Hogweed.   Though slugs, which seemed to turn up in the most peculiar places - including stuck to his face after a particularly damp night in the tent - probably came a close second..
