Posting up the pink panther on another thread reminded me that I hadn't posted a link to my AMR write-up!

Good stuff :-bd

Is it a route worth touring over 2 weeks?

(Just thinking of getting away next January once the current situation has hopefully blown over)

Enjoyed that, thanks Nige.

Cheers!

Definitely better toured, it was a real shame, even at my pace, to not hang about and see things properly. Not sure I'd tour that exact route. Some sections felt like they were just there to be endured. The final 40km was like the run into Antelope Wells, it got you to the end but.... :wink:

It was all starting to get crazy as we were in the airport. Glad I hadn't planned to stay another week!

Only Just found this, about to do my last meeting of the Day then going to relax with a brew and read it. See if the event still appeals to me once I finish your write up :-)
