I use to go to the Salvation Army Sunday School and stated with the brass band (It's true, I kid you not) when I was young. I got a dishonourable discharge years ago.


John, in my way of thinking. Doing the Inn's way without having a drink in them is like doing a challenge walk without going to the checkpoints.

Just not done.

Have fun and stay safe, But saying that it's more fun when things do go wrong.

Yes, it was ironic when we did the "Inn Way to the North York Moors", seven or so walks spread over the summer 2009, we missed every pub except for a pint at the finish in Helmsley. We were sponsored by the Salvation Army and that one slip cost us dear.

Nine pubs around York would demand a train ride home, otherwise I would be getting off the bus at every stop.

"touch of sarcasm"

I wan't dare John. But if not having a drink in them, you'll be doing the Innless way then.

John it's a pity you be away for my walk next Saturday for York. I'm leading a 5 miles with 9 pubs and yes we will be having a drink in every one.

I will throw myself in front of his lens every time he attempts to snap our group in rear shots on hills, fields and animal accessories

Some of us East Yorks folks are doing Mark Reid's Inn way, over 6 walking days, starting at Rothbury around 9am next Tuesday, 6th September. If any of you ultra-northern locals (or southerners) feel like joining for a day or more, get in touch with me on 07919 448630
