A walk is not always about the scenery and over these last couple of trips the three of us have settled into an amiable, fun, gentle leg pulling camaraderie. This easy going approach suits me just fine. With Darren shouldering his proposed gear selection for this year's challenge the idea started to take seed in my mind about doing next years with him, well may be, just may be.

South of Woldingham the path drops to within a couple of hundred metres of the M25 along the foot of Oxted Downs to circumnavigate a quarry. Even with the east bound carriage way at a virtual standstill the monotonous moan of the motorway made these last few kilometres a headache inducing experience. I was glad when the path headed up and away past Titsey Place to the car park at Botley Hill where we'd left our car.
