Chiltern Way 10: Chalk Hill to Lilley

I calculate that I have just 62 kilometres to my chosen finish line of Hemel Hempstead, which leaves me with two long, or three short, legs. This leg has been a long time avoided; The low pressure that had sat over the country this summer has been a pretty poor excuse to delay it, but it had made it more difficult to bite the bullet and tick off what I was expecting to be a poor day out.

The Bibbulmun Track: a budget and a spot of belt tightening

With over 16 months to go, I have just transferred the first £100 into a bank account, which will now be known as my “Bibbulmun Track Fund”. The balance now stands at a paltry £100.14; a long long way to make my target. I can now see that walking the 965 kilometres is only a part of my worries, and that raising the cash to attempt it is just as big a challenge.
