“Is failing to plan really planning to fail? Or is it just true adventure……” this is a quote I borrowed from our fellow circumnavigators of this year, the Midlife kayak team. But then one evening when I had nothing better to do, I found this

on http://www.martinkayaking.co.uk/, another fellow circumnavigator and from London, too. Now, it got me thinking. Is it still ok that I only looked in the map while studying the Cape Wrath area to find out if it is worth to stop there on our way? I read the menu in the Ozone café, and it sounds like we could do this.

And then I came across this http://www.aroundbritain4britain.co.uk/.

Impressive that someone plans it so in advance, but probably a norm. I like their daily schedule. Michal and I usually take between 1.5 and 3 hours to get ready on multiple day trips. But it got me worried. I have not planned for hot chocolate in our food bag. I would have to rethink the whole idea again.
