Henry and Petes verry long walk

In which Henry the Springer attempts to take his pal Pete some 1250 miles from Land’s End to John O’Groats, starting at the beginning of May 2011 and ending……when the dog biscuits run out (Oct 18, 2011).

In aid of Hounds for Heroes, the new service charity which will provide assistance dogs to forces and emergency service personnel, the pair’s route has taken  them to the flow country of Sutherland via Wiltshire villages, military bases, Midlands canal marinas, Pennine dales and hills and Scottish Glens. They have slept (heavily) at B&Bs, friends and family, and in a backpacker’s tent – Pete finally did figure how to put it up. They have Tweeted regularly, blogged entertainingly and at length, posted photos on Flickr and videos on YouTube.

If you see them say hello, give generously, and DO ask Pete if his feet hurt (he's had no blisters at all!)
