Final thoughts The next day, we drove to Milton Keynes, and dropped off our driver Tim. Next stop was Rickmansworth, then Farnborough, Aldershot and finally Farnham. By now, I was driving alone on my way to return the car to Guildford. The car felt empty. Hollow. Lifeless. There were almost ghosts. I now longed to be cramped into a tight space with 5 team members. As I emptied the last remnants of forgotten possessions out at Avis Guildford, it was the end of an adventure. A great adventure, with shared highs and silent lows. I’d suggest going North to South, starting at about 17:00. This minimises to every extent night walking, and reduces the chance of traffic delays as a big chunk of the driving is in the dead of night. We were blessed with the most amazing weather, apart from about 15 minutes at the outset. This undoubtedly helped. I cannot begin to imagine doing it in driving rain or cloud. We had spectacular views from all 3 summits, which statistically is freakish, given how many days each year those summits are shrouded in cloud. Would I do it again? No, unless it was with my family. Things couldn’t have gone better for us, and so for me there’s no reason to repeat it, with so many other challenges out there.
