I'm traveling from Land's End to John O' Groats by means of Google Street View and Fitbit. In other words I have actually walked every mile I log, just in a more mundane location. This blog records the route I might have taken, if I had the luxury of taking a few months off work!

Today's route
 

Training Day

Heading north today, I head through a military training area just north of the Brecon beacons. In the UK these areas usually have to permit the general public to pass through, but as you can see from the signs, they don't want people wandering from the road. In reality, I'm not sure whether they would be happy for someone to just walk the road, rather than using a car.

This is still some interesting topography, so it is clear why they use it for military training.
