Lyke Wake crossing July 4th 2016


I wondered if it was possible for my husband and I to report our LWW? This
was our first attempt.

We started at Osmotherley at 02:15 July 4th) and finished in Ravenscar at
17:40 on the same day. That included getting lost three times and taking two
long routes by accident (i’m not sure if that actually counts as getting
lost 5 times to be fair).

Between us we are a few toenails down, a baker’s cyst and some impressive
blisters. That said (despite what we ACTUALLY said yesterday) we can’t wait
to do it again. It was such a brilliant challenge and we can’t thank you
enough for facilitating such a fantastic concept.

Yours sincerely
Charlotte & Gregor Douglas

    Perhaps we should form a N. Lyke Wake Club – Baker Cyst Subsection – see my report:

    I have to admit, ashamedly, that after my relapse in 2014, I have crossed 15 or 16 times in 2 &1/2 years (though I’m not the worst offender – Gerry Orchard has crossed more often in that time interval!!)
