Everything is falling into place that I can join in the walk for the whole week. Couple of dumb questions having not manged to be on any of the previous walks. Do I need to have any access to personal transport at all during the week, or can I leave the car at home? Is there transport for bags? If needed I’m happy to bring the car and help out with a bag relay system – I just don’t know the form!
The “form” is that walkers, other than the band and crew, meet up and discuss how to move cars at either end of the walk each day. Often Facebook and private messages are a good way to get in touch and discuss plans ahead of the week. There is a big meet-up opportunity this year with the first show at the Hailsham pavilion being before the first day of the walk. If you don’t use Facebook then send an email to email@example.com and we will try to put you in touch with each other.
Great to have you along Graham.
