Nearly time to go!

Less than 2 weeks to go now! We are off to Wales on 31st August to start our very long walk. We’ve been training hard and are getting pretty fit. Can do 20 miles with my 25lb backpack, which is what I’m hoping to average on the trip. Kim is looking very trim and absolutely loves camping…..mind you he hasn’t had to get through any thunderstorms yet. That could be interesting!!!  We have managed to raise about £800 for Raystede so far, maimly from friends and aquaintances at local bars and shops, also my church have supported me.  We are hoping to get a mention in various local papers and radio stations in both Sussex and Wales. The more publicity we get the better!  I have a fundraising site as well which i hope will help. http://www.justgiving.com/Kim-and-Lynn

A Big Adventure

Image

Kim and I are going to set out on a new adventure! We are going to walk the new Welsh Coastal Footpath which is 870 miles long!! We want to start this marathon walk at the start of September as then all dog restrictions come to an end. We think it will take about 6 weeks if all goes well, and we are going to raise money for Raystede Rescue Centre near Lewes, East Sussex, UK. which is where I found Kim.This is thier website if you are interested:http://www.raystede.org/ 

He was 16 months then and had never been taken for a walk as his owner worked all day and didn’t have the energy to take him out!! He’s a very shy dog because he didn’t get to make any friends when he was young but he’s trying to get more sociable with other dogs so long as they don’t frighten him. He likes people once he’s got to smell them a few times. He loves to play ball and run around in the countryside. He also loves all the foods that people eat!! We are hoping to find lots of new friends and supporters to help us on our adventure.

We will keep you all posted about our progress.Lots of licks Kim and Lynn
