You're nuts! Now that really is a challenge! As a cancer survivor myself I wish you all of the luck in the world and look forward to buying you a pint when we catch up again. Is there a timetable? Or does it depend on the hospitality in the pubs?

Couldn't find anything on your FB page - do you have a separate one for this?
