I am! I'm also having a lot of mud stuck to my jeans, and meeting dogs, and being asked by nearly everyone I pass, "Get any good photos?" What, am I gonna say no? ;-)

Have a great time (and looking forward to the photos)!
I am, thanks! I'm doing the walk in 15 segments, which, allowing for necessary breaks plus the trip to Edinburgh, will take about three weeks. I imagine that processing is going to take at least twice that long. I'm doing a bit here and there as I go but there's no way I'm going to stitch together panoramas after seven hours of keeping several kilos of camera equipment from falling into the mud. :-P

Re: Gonads, Strife, and the Dangers of Free-Association
I love you! I saw this a few years ago when it was hosted on its own site and I've been looking for it for ages.
Oh, that song is such an earworm. Argh!
Whee! Have fun!
Also: Meep! UPS is trying to find you (email just sent)!
Also, also: I think it's quite good enough for Flikr. Even if you don't use it like I do. =)
I am, I am. And meeting dogs, and lots of people who think I must be a pro or a bird-watcher. Usually they guess pro, which is kinda flattering if inaccurate. Of course, I'm not much of a bird-watcher either.
thats how i felt today walking around in the warm sun
Huzzah! It's been so nice breathing fresh air all day. I feel all healthy and clean inside.
Great snap! So, are you walking the loop continuously or in parts each day?
In parts each day. I fill up my memory cards every walk so there's no way I could do it continuously without carrying around a drive to do periodic image dumps. The camera equipment plus my lunch and thermos are heavy enough; I dunno if I could handle any more weight!
Lovely! Enjoy, sweets. Good for recharging the internal batteries, yeah? *hugs*
Yeah! I feel knackered and great at the same time. :-)
I really like the image.
Good luck and have fun.
Thank you! It's going well so far. Today I had to be a fare-dodger too. The stupid machine at Enfield Lock wouldn't take my money or my card, and the guy watching the platforms was having some involved conversation on his mobile phone and completely failed to respond to me. So I hopped on the train anyway and rode to Tottenham Hale, where there's no ticket booth for the overground portion of the station. I would have paid the penalty fare if they'd caught me but as it was, I was exhausted and just wanted to go home.
you should give me a call and let me know how you're getting on
Heh. Well, I've done about twenty miles so far. I'm planning to do this by myself, twice - once in spring and once in fall. I also want to see if I can organize a small group to do the whole thing at night. Might be a challenge, and we'd definitely need torches, but I think it could be really cool. :-)
I'd tell you to have fun, but it looks as though you're already there.
Oh, it's okay, everyone else is giving orders. ;-)
I don't know if I would recommend taking photos the way I am to anybody! It's slow and sometimes excruciating going, carrying several kilos of cumbersome equipment. If you do decide to do it, don't rely on the signposts to guide you or you'll get lost. I highly recommend getting the book The London Loop, by David Sharp.
