Bear in mind that there are parts of the coast with very flaky mobile signals. We've just got back from the Urdd camp at Llangrannog where we could only get a signal by standing outside the sports centre. At home (in the middle, which you'll sadly miss if you insist on walking around the edge :wink: ) we can only get a signal by standing in the front bay window!

Ah the mysterious phone signals, will they won't they be here is another of the variables that make my planning flakey.
Once last year i could see a phone mast across the valley but no signal, maybe a different company!
Realy baffling is the odd occasion i've sent an email but the phone won't make a call as apparently there is no signal, where would life be without a few mysteries.
When it won't work it's just switch off and try in morning after a few miles.
Iv'e met people with phones that also act as gps with a mapping app they really are impressive, but with a flat battery or no signal, then you can see why i still use paper maps. (mind you, when i lost two days mapping on the cornish coast i didn't feel so clever my self).

Diolch J.P.

Paper maps are more fun than GPS anyway - you can't spread a GPS out on the floor on a rainy day planning where you want to go next time it's decent enough...

John, are you coordinating at all with The Big Welsh Coastal Walk? Tons of info here:
http://www.ramblers.org.uk/wales
"This is a series of Ramblers Cymru walks (see map) being held over the weekend of the 5th May 2012 to coincide with the launch of the Wales Coast Path. We have been working closely with Welsh Government, led by Countryside Council for Wales, funded by the European Union convergence fund to reach this point....The map will be updated as more walks are added...."

Thanks for that, i hadn't come across it, there are quite a lot of details i don't know like will there be an official start/finnish point at either end.

Cheers J.P.

Just a quick update, i have forward bought a rail ticket to Chester for March 26th as an all being well start date.
Only managed a little over 200 miles training so far this year,
The wobbly welsh is still wobbly. and the weather a month ahead is always unknown but it should be spring.
All i have found out about the start point is map cordinates (which is fine).

Cheers J.P.

Hi John,

Perhaps you can provide some sort of calender where you hope to be during your walk.

It will help SSiWers who want to meet up with you a chance to organise themselves before hand.

Also your plans may co-inside with some Clonc bach or mawr where groups of learners and natural speakers are walking the coastal paths.

Looking ahead with reasonable weather i would imagine making it to the menai bridge in five days and then a week around Anglesey, (by then will know how it's going).

Meeting others on the coast would be great, i will put a phone number on hear nearer the start time so people can text me and will try to post an update to my blog at least daily.
Cheers J.P.
