Well, this looks a bit like a dogs breakfast! I wish I was more tech savvy because the whole spreadsheet shows the dates and the canals traveled, but I can’t even expand the locks column, never mind figure out how to get the other columns to show up when I cut and paste it over here.

The numbers are pretty impressive though, I think. Well done everyone, it was a great adventure from beginning to end, rain, sleet, thunderstorms, wind and lovely sunshine. Lots of laughter, great company and great food, with some culture thrown in from time to time.

    Wow hats off to you and Katherine – 62 miles and 113 locks… almost 2 per mile. Now I understand why you were not as enthralled as I was with the flight we did – jeez can’t remember the name of it – Devizes? Near there anyway!

    So how is Italy? Or aren’t you there yet? lotsa, m
