David’s JOGLE

Well, to my surprise, but with a great sense of achievement, Mabel & I completed our Centenary End to End run on Monday 18th April. I set out from home on Friday the 8th, stayed overnight at Lands End and set off for John o Groats on Saturday morning.

Bearing in mind that the drive to Lands End was the longest days’ drive I had ever done in an A7, I really did not know what to expect, or even what sort of distance either I or the car were likely to manage. I had therefore no set timetable and had only pre-booked the first 2 nights accommodation, and those could be amended up to 24hrs before arrival.

In fact, the whole trip went very well, and I will no doubt bore you with the details over the next few Newsletters.

In outline, I stopped at Bristol, Preston, Kilsyth and Inverness before reaching John o Groats around 1pm on Wednesday 13th in very wet, windy and cold conditions.
