  1. Mate im liking your blog, very interesting and good to read. Only someone with your charisma could do so well! Hope it keeps going well and you get a comfier bed than a flagstone next time, good luck and hopefully i’ll try and catch up with you near the end east of Lulworth.


  2. Hi Max,
    as promised i’ve publicised your water pilgrimage with all my contacts and put a few photo’s on facebook at
    i hope you are getting the help you deserve.
    all the best alan

  3. Hi Max

    Great to hear you are doing Ok, How’s the stick holding out ? you know you have the prototype so let me know of any improvements that could be made.
    Nicky, I and the kids hope to be there on your last stage. Well done so far, there is a great mix of people out there, some who know no further then the own needs and wants, others who no nothing but disappointment and then there is the rest, who are full of understanding and love ( not a word I use lightly by the way ) and if you find good people in short supply look no further then the people who are thinking of you

    May the road rise to meet you
    May the wind be always at your back
    The sun shine warm upon your face
    The rains fall soft upon your fields
    And until we meet again,
    May God hold you in the hollow of his hand

    ( guess which part of this traditional Irish Diddy I am not quite au fait with )

    Cheers Vinnie

  4. Hi Max
    Thinking about you today, so much water falling from the sky!!
    I hope you are dry and comfortable, sending Reiki as promised

  5. Hi , Max.
    Hope you enjoyed your rest day yesterday.Well deserved. Time is passing so fast. Heading for the Lizard already.
    Your visit to Falmouth co-incides with Falmouth Week, a celebration of living on and near the water.So gear up for some interesting shaningins down the quay that night. The Battle of Trafalgar cornish style and some Wench Winching to name but a few, all in aid of RNLI, and if youre up for it, a cider in the ‘Front’.
    Keep up the good work.

  6. Hi Max. It was great to meet you yesterday in Portloe Tea rooms. We were more than Happy to let you stay with us for the night. Enjoyed your company and think its great what your doing to raise awareness.. Good Luck for the rest of your walk. Hope all goes well and the weather is kind to you! Hopefully be in contact with you soon. Best wishes, Beth, Nicky, Jack and co. x

  7. Hi Max! I hope it’s all going well down on the coast – admittedly the weather hasn’t been the best, but stiff upper lip and all that!

    I thought I might pop down for a walk and talk on Wednesday 2nd – are you walking Exmouth to Sidmouth as planned?

    Let me know if that would be a good idea, or if another day would be better – I’m pretty flexible until Saturday.

    Best wishes,


  8. Hello Max,

    I have just come across the story of your epic journey on the BBC website. This is an amazing achievement for a worthy cause.

    Bank in June my friend, John and I walked the Jurassic coast in 4 days for charity. My knees have still not forgiven me! But I would say that the views made it worthwhile. I hope the downhills are not taking too much of a toll on you.

    Enjoy the finish tomorrow – The part around Old Harry Rocks is really nice. The Nudist beach was a big disappointment, but at least it was flat.
