On hold

We are taking a few days off in order tomorrow give our (Bob & Jos) blisters a better chance of healing. Continued walking is slowly making matters worse and we are getting slower.
Barney's feet are holding up fine. Jos applies Mushers cream daily wbich is keeping his pads soft - perhaps that's what we need!
Our old friends Penny & Tim have kindly offered to pick us up Saturday so we can spend some time with them in Dorset. We'll be back on the route as soon as we can.
Up to now, Barney has walked 238 miles and collected over 1000 pounds for Guide Dogs but is always happy to accept more donations at
Stay tuned!


  1. Hi, sorry to hear the blister situation is not so good. Hopefully some days off will give good chance for healing and you will soon be on your way again. Rubbing lanolin into feet is supposed to help with healing and blister prevention.....possibly worth investigating!

  2. Sorry to hear of the dreaded blisters. A couple of days off will hopefully see you right as rain again. Enjoy your days off.
