Welcome to our latest Blog. Midge and I have decided to do the big one; John O'Groats to Land's End 1200 miles on footpaths. Why Blind Faith? Because Midge is now blind but he has the faith to follow me anywhere. We are doing this to raise funds for Hounds for Heroes. I chose this charity because I think Midge himself is a bit of a hero, blindness makes little difference to him so I thought this was appropriate. visit our Just Giving pages to support this worthwhile charity

The whole story
Just to let you readers know I will be writing up the whole trip with photos when we hrt back
Almost like cheating!
Peninne way completed! Lovely dry sunny weather from Hawes to Edale. The notorious bogs were almost dry and I finished with clean boots. It was almost like cheating! Midge had problems on the rocky ground because of his blindness but he it a determined lad. We are now on easy ground for the next week or so en route to the river Severn.
