Next time you visit the Walking Englishman website you will notice the index page has changed from fixed-width to responsive so that mobile users get a better experience. Have a look and tell me what you think? I will be converting the entire website to responsive over time but i would like your honest feedback before i go to the next stage. See http://www.walkingenglishman.com/ and take a look at the page on mobiles, tablets and desktop where the change is minimal. Thank you.

And the route does follow public rights of way so the farmers need reporting if they have obstructed them.

Hi Anthony, picking up from your twitter post - when do you start the walk and have you fixed the daily itinerary yet? 
The E8 The E8 is a very long distance (and inspirational) hiking route across Europe. It is an exciting prospect and one that I hope to complete one day. I imagine being able to truly see the change in cultures, geography a...

Mike. Thanks for visiting the blog and commenting.

The daily itinerary is sorted with accommodation booked on about 75% of the nights. The rest of the time I plan to wild camp. Days range from 20k - 40k with a day off about 15% along to confirm that I can do it and to actually do some touristing!

Thanks Sheldon, it's years since since I did the walk so I will remove the route if it's now blocked.

I have just found the itinerary and as for your grand plan I am envious. When I did Great Britain End to End in 2011 over 80 days covering 1,120 miles the excitement started in the planning so I can imagine how you are feeling right now. 

Now for the advice - You might want to read up on the stages of my long walk I have written up at http://www.walkingenglishman.com/1000milewalk.html You will see that despite preparation a long consistent walk is going to cause blisters and sprains, it is inevitable. Especially as you will be carrying weight. How much weight is there when you are fully loaded up?

'The Angel Euphoria v The Devil Pain' is the long distance walkers choice.

Thanks for all this information, it will be really helpful. I am going to spend some time reading up on things over the weekend so will get back to you later with comments. 

At the moment it is lots of parts exciting, and one (or maybe a couple of parts) of fear! Whilst a pretty exact measurement it is also probably, I guess, appropriate coupling of feelings considering the plan. 

I recently read the book 'Two Feet, Four Paws' which covers the Angel vs Devil aspect quite well towards the end. If I am honest it wasn't something I was aware of, I sort of expected things to just get easier and easier as you get fitter and more used to the walk and you would be able to gradually appreciate things more. The roller-coaster of feelings and feeling described in that book was a good eye opener.
