day 2 - cricklade to letchlade, 10.something miles. Still not much of a river in these parts, Saw two Germans on bikes, two Herons (they didn't have bikes), and a white slug. There were also a number of dragon flies.

Much of the path at this point goes through fields and can be quite narrow, with some nasty nettles and thistles (martyn knew this, so didn't wear his shorts today, unlike his wife..ha ha). Later we plan to try to burn down our tent using our petrol-powered-stove.

day one - saw two herons, a stoat, fifteen slugs and lots of birds we didn' t know the names of.
not surprisingly source of thames was dry as a bone - had to walk about four miles before we saw water! feet hurt, legs ache, shoulders sore but we made it - not so far tomorrow. more then.

Well. this is it. we don't appear to have fully sorted out our packing yet. We do however know where we are going but not exactly how long it will take to get there!

We also have no idea how we will carry 3 weeks of clothes, food and our tent when it all is so heavy. maybe we should have a large river barge to tow all our belongings on.
