Subject: Lands End to John O'Groats logistics
Posted: 4 Jan 2017 3:37 pm
I am planning on doing to the End to End walk later this year, and am starting planning/training for it already. I was wondering if you could tell me how easy it was for you to budget the trip, and whether you went over/stayed under your budget, and roughly how much it was?
Thanks for all your help otherwise, as your website has been really helpful so far.
To be honest, I didn't really budget it, I just did the walk - back then there was hardly any information out there to do with costs, so I had no idea how expensive it would be. I did start out by camping, but the pack weight nearly ended my walk after just 3 weeks, so from then on I stayed in B&Bs and hostels, which were a lot more expensive than camping... so in that sense I guess I did go overbudget, if that's possible when you haven't actually set a budget to begin with!
