A story from Brian:00016

I am back from my Lands End to John o groats walk and i finished in 26 days which surprised even me as that is a good time for walking the route. The weather was not too bad but the last 4 days in Scotland were snow, hail, gale force winds and rain. At some times it was a whiteout especially going over the mountains, but i made it in the end.

I am pleased to say that all the clothing performed very well and it kept the snow out and the jacket was a lifesaver as it came up over the lower face so stopped the snow coming inside.

Those socks you gave me were exceptional and i did not get one blister in 910 miles. The socks were very soft to touch and were about the best socks i have used.
