    Me too, its just the logistics of organising a support crew and getting the boat back from central London. It seems a very selfish thing to ask someone to drive all that way and park up waiting for you to have all the fun (or rather experience).

    Paddled 17 miles last Saturday, allthough enjoyable seemd to take ages. So the DW is something that I admire in others, but probably won't be taking part in.

    Not in any fit state at the moment. But if I do get round to the DW, the portage is the only thing I'll want for. Thought I would do it as an early 'birthday paddle'.
    ( For the past eight years, I've spent my birthdays alone, solo paddling without back-up. Two longest 'birthday paddles' to date, 128 miles and 126.5 miles. (All paddling & transport to be done in one 24hr. period, midnight-midnight in October.))

    That does look most interesting! It's on my list for serious consideration. Thanks for the heads-up.
