It turns out that walking 185 miles carrying a full pack for 13 days did not cause the physical problems I experienced after Offa’s Dyke – and I can’t tell you how pleased I am!
When I came up with the idea of the Offa’s Dyke coin toss, a simple way to decide who would carry the slightly heavier share of the joint equipment, I really did not expect the level of interest (and sympathy) it later generated on Twitter!
The concept was simple…
Orikaso (meaning “to fold plastic”) are lightweight flat pack folding cups, bowls and plates made from Polypropylene.
During my two week Offa’s Dyke hike, I found two sets of Orikaso an absolutely ideal solution for both me and the dog (using the plate for food, and the bowl for water). Orikaso are lightweight, durable and really easy to clean – available in red, blue and green sets, they are a bargain at £2.99 per set on Amazon.
I have been a bad blogger….. I had big plans for loads of blog posts relating to the Offa’s Dyke challenge I finished in April – however I haven’t done any of them (sorry about that!).
I would like to argue there has been mitigating circumstances (see The unexpected physical consequence of Offa’s Dyke) – the last few weeks have been pretty traumatic! My condition has improved slightly, and I am on the path towards getting a diagnosis, so my mind has drifted back to these blog posts.
