Again, Thanks all.

A good group, usual LDWA folk.

Hope you enjoyed the route over both moors, next 'guerilla' will have some hills i promise (may be some sun too)
See you all Pontypool or Dorset

I'd just like to say thank you too Aaron for organizing and leading the walk. Thanks also to everyone for their good company. It was a really enjoyable day.

Apologies to Annabel, I feel somewhat responsible for your fall in the mud!

Aaron thank you for organising and navigating so well. Everyone thanks for the company.
I think walking 46 miles was harder than running it probably due to the extra time on your feet and the hours of sliding about in the dark. I am already not saying never again which is a good sign. I may see some of you at The Woldsman.

Thank you Sandy

A good walk in good company, what with Julie pulling us along at a fair old rate we only had approx 5hrs sliding about in the dark!

Hope all enjoyed the day, especially the routes over both moors.

See you all in either Pontypool or Dorset

Thanks for organising and leading Aaron - a good walk, cafe and pub stops more than made up for the mud.

I'm not . I've entered the Woldsman in April and hope to enter the 100 next year in North Yorkshire.

Cheers, Aaron. Yes, I'm doing the Marshals, so on the main weekend I'll be at HQ with London and then later on with Kent at Evershot.

Hi Julie, thanks not a problem.

There would be many options in Doncaster that is a short drive down the M18 to Junc 6 Thorne.

There is a Travelodge at the M18/M180 junction (5) but it is rather sparse (motorway services with a Burger King!).

A few options in Thorne itself but not many. Plenty of places to eat/drink etc.

Are all 6 of us Dorset100 entries?

Hi All,
As we have no Poppyline this coming winter, would anyone else like to attempt a Guerrilla 50 with me in Feb 2016? Feel I need a good, simple, flat 50 to kick off the proper long distance walking pre the Dorset100 - anyone interested? Aaron's Carpetbaggers was a great success two years ago... any ideas?
