My Triumphant Return

If all goes well, I’ll be on a plane to London end of next week. I’ll visit dear friends in Cornwall, do a short test hike along the South West Coast Path, visit London (West End and more dear friends), and head up to Yorkshire for yet more more dear friends and the main event: a 6-day, 26 pub, 76 mile, pub-to-pub loop hike through the Yorkshire Dales.

I included Jessica in the photo just because I know it’ll get me more readers. Maybe I can photoshop her into the entire trip? But sadly, she’ll not be joining me on this excursion. We’ve completely failed to synchronize our retirements, and she’s just too important to spare back home. Not to mention, she’s neither fond of beer nor climbing through dales. More for the rest of us?

In other news, here’s a test link to a random VR180 YouTube video just to see what happens. Try it out in your VR headset if you have one! For no particular reason… 😏  [Note: Oculus Quest users will want to launch the YouTube VR app, click on the magnifying glass then the microphone, and say the name of the video to find it on there! That seems to be the only way to get the true VR180 3D experience.  Just watching in the browser, even in full-screen VR180 mode, looks like crap!]

Okay.  So I’m vaccinated, have 3 COVID tests (before/during/after) arranged, and plenty of KN95 masks packed. Now fingers crossed UK doesn’t change their travel rules before I get there!  🤞😬

    1. Lea, do I have to way until the *end* of a long day? There’s supposed to be ~3 pubs along the way every day! 😀 So we’ve got you covered. I personally hope to find the occasional porter or stout! 🍻

  1. Well Bonus, I just don’t know how you will manage without yo Mama along, but we will hope for the best. Don’t forget, my fave is good Scotch at your 65 rest stops, I’m sure someone will be willing to drink it for me! Fair winds and have a blast!

    1. This is how I bring you with me! ❤️ And we may not know the difference between good Scotch and bad (or maybe there isn’t any such thing as bad Scotch?) but we’ll make sure there’s *less* Scotch in Yorkshire when we’re done. 🥃 Cheers, MA!
