What's the point?
"Blimey, that's gonna take you ages" he said, "isn't that about 350 miles?"
I pointed out that it's just over 400 door to door, but I'm not going the most direct route, but a more 'scenic' 500 mile version.
"...but that's like 55, 56 miles a day over nine days" I couldn't fault his maths, but then he came out with this...
Let's break this down a bit...
Another: an additional; one more; implying 'not the first' perhaps... I may be the first to walk from Glasgow to The Madejski Stadium but the idea is not original by any stretch of the imagination, therefore it's 'Another'
Long: now the Oxford English Dictionary's definition of 'Long' is rather, well, Long! So to keep it simple I shall just use the first line, "measuring much from end to end" says it all really.
Way: a road, track, path etc., for passing along. A course or route for reaching a place. There is way too much on 'Way' so in a way, it's best if I leave it at that!
Challenge: A summons to take part in a contest or trial, to prove or justify something, a demanding or stimulatingly difficult task. "Stimulatingly Difficult?"
Oh well , if that's what the book says!
So there it is!
I'm going to be stimulated by a difficult and demanding task. One that involves traversing a road, track or path that measures much from end to end. Whilst not being original in concept, it's original to me. Especially the Curry/Chilli/Comedian/Speaker bit at the end in the Jazz Cafe by Madejski Stadium on 4th April.
So get your tickets by phoning The Jazz Cafe on 0118 9681442 and I'll tell you if I ever got that bivvy bag or not!
And just in case you were wondering, you don't have to walk 500 miles for a curry and a pint that's my job!
