Wednesday 19th October 2017 – A burst of speed

We seem to have stepped up the pace today, although some was later on yesterday. Salvo and Izzy did a mile each and then added another 2 miles each later. Babeli added 4.56 miles and Heidi and Bella have managed 7.16 each. Aristotle, Wilma and Shadow each did 1.3 miles while Cleo added 3.36 to the tally. Basil managed 4 miles, Izzy I mile and Dickens added an impressive 7.9 miles. All that means we’ve now covered 437.7 miles of the journey and there is only another 115 to go! We may take a bit of a detour to visit one or two places with Entlebuchers along the way so that we arrive at the Embassy next week just in time.

We may get to Calais tomorrow. Who’s up for a swim?

Sunday 15th October 2017 – 200 miles to go

Thanks to the glorious weather the walking has been very enjoyable today. Elliot told us his walk this week of 3.3miles and then he set out with seven other Entlebuchers today to add another 4.2 miles each. Which means on the map there was 7.5miles for Elliot and 4.2 miles each for Sybil, Basil, Dora (green paw on the map), Babeli, Heidi, Bella and Laika (red paw on the map). They took us past Laon and on to Couvron et Aumencourt.

Then Shadow and Wilma set off and added 6 miles each bringing our total distance up to 335 miles. Then we heard from Dickens (dark blue paw print on the map) and he has done 17.3miles taking us past Saint Quentin and on to a little place called Bellicourt. That brings our total up to 352 miles and that means we’ve only got 200 miles to go!

Friday 13th October 2017 – Ready for a Big Push This Weekend

We’re a week into the walk and it’s going well. This weekend will see a big group walk in Dorney, Berkshire with a whole group of Entlebuchers getting together for Heidi. Today the activity was as follows:

Aristotle managed his best walk of the week and walked just over 2km. Salvo then walked 3.2km to the edge of the Marne region of France. Izzy’s 3.2km took us to the outskirts of Saint Mard sur le Mont. Wilma and Shadow added just over 2km each to take us close to Contault. After that we put on quite a spurt of distance – Floria, Bella and Heidi added 7.7km each and took us right as far as Chalons en Champagne, a stop many of us know from the times we drive the route. Sybil then added 3.2km and Basil an impressive 11.2km to finish the night at just past Vadenay. That’s now 263 miles of the 552 complete.

Walk for Heidi update Mon 9th October

Today’s reported stages

News came in last night of Elliot’s walk. He did 13km (just over 8 miles) to raise money for Heidi. He’s shown with the orange ‘walker’ symbol and takes us almost to the Col de Raon.

Salvo and Izzy stepped out again and took us past Hadol, before pawing over to Aristotle for his first part of the walk. Aristotle has elbow dysplasia so is having to do his walk in short stages. He’s doing his best but today managed just 1.4km (he’s shown as the green walker on the map).

Bella, Heidi and Cleo stepped out and managed 5.67km each. Their combined total has taken us as far as Gorhey (Cleo is the yellow walker symbol)

Where we’ve got to

Basil took us on through France to Dompaire before pawing over to Wilma for the last leg of the day. Wilma (purple walker symbol) takes us to the 147 mile stage.
