Some thoughts after finishing the whole walk.

The best bits - Some of the South West Coast Path, the Pennine Way, and the West Highland Way. 

The very best day - High Force to Dufton by way of the Tees Valley and over High Cup Nick.

The worst bit - Scotland North of Helmsdale.

No blisters. Only a couple of cramp attacks. One new hip (though the old one stood up pretty well for the first three years)

Best accommodation - Alston; worst - Llanymynech.

Hates - litter (increase penalties). Windfarms (do they really make sense?) Inconsiderate drivers.

Real admiration for the half-dozen or so people I met who were doing it all in one go. 

Lessons learned - good kit costs more, but is well worth while. Boots in particular.
