I've been a bit distracted by too many friends dying of cancer this year, the latest being my brother-in-law Graham Brechin, hence the picture. When I get back from raising some money for Marie Curie I'll continue the task of loading up the issues of Deadbeat that Gordon Gurvan hasn't already scanned for me. My nonsensical walk blog will be on www.500m.wordpress.com, which Simon Kettles and I used when we walked it 4 years ago. We leave in September as the grape harvest is then and the wine festivals are part of the spiritual side of the walk, and we'll be back for the party in October. Mark 'Rocky' Reihill will be taking his trembling London limbs to task and bringing them north for one last blast and although Graham never met Mark, the likeness is amazing!
