    Quick update: Currently having a rest day with some black sheep in Masham (pronounced Massum). Tomorrow I've a high level 25 mile 2 day walk to West Burton, over Little Whernside, Great Whernside and Buckden Pike, with a wild camp somewhere in the middle. 304 miles done, 222 miles to go, fantastic experience!

    West Burton is a lovely little village.

    Pub by the green is run by a football fan.
    Blackpool is his club if I remember correctly.

    Fundraising total is here, brilliant so far https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/ianwildyorkshireway

    As far as number twos are concerned, I'm burning so many calories that I've not needed one yet. I'll have one when I get back, last week in May or thereabouts. Washing is easy, I just find the nearest sheep dip.

    Indeed I was, although there's been no contact since. I'm expecting a brass band and an open top bus through Dodeth when I finally get back.
