If you have been paying close attention, as surely you have, you will know that Team Uborka has been strolling in a leisurely fashion along the Thames Path, starting at the source in October 2016. Pete and I have completed 169.7 miles, and Bernard has joined us for 82 of them. We’ve also had occasional guest walkers, including the always excellent Lyle.
Most of our miles were walked last year, when we had the energy to arrange childminders in order to go off on walking weekends. This year has gone more slowly, partly because of Bernard’s increasing fearfulness of dogs, or perhaps as we get more and more urban, simply the increasing number of dogs.
We have about 30 miles left to go, and Bernard is away on a school trip at the end of June. So we are extending the invitation to anyone who wishes to join us on Friday 22nd or Saturday 23rd June. We’ll be starting at Teddington Lock on the Friday, exact time to be confirmed, and walking in the direction of the Thames Barrier. Start location for Saturday will be decided on the Friday.
We’re also planning not to be so knackered that we can’t go out for a drink or two on either (or both) nights (as we’ll stay in London), and again would like to cordially invite all the lovely people to that. If you’re up for a sort of blogmeet thing, please tell us!
