Home for the weekend: The Cheshire Cheese Inn, Hope
It's Friday, it's approaching 7pm and I'm turning my back on London and heading to the Peak District for a weekend of walking - whatever the weather.
The goal is to start getting some miles under my belt before I tackle the Yorkshire Three Peaks for Bpositive this summer but first I've got to get there.
With over 180 miles of road to cover it might be a bit of a slog but once I reach Hope Valley, my base for the next two days, I look forward to a well-deserved drink and a good night's sleep - both essential preparation.
So what's the plan? Saturday - tackle the first chunk of the Pennine Way. Sunday - take lead from my walking buddy Ingrid.
