Last minute mission extension

Wow, I have just managed to secure myself a winter mooring in Sheffield basin, which means I need to cruise slightly further up the tidal Trent than initially planned. So we have moved back slightly in terms of progress.

The mission now stands at 180 miles and 91 locks! More miles, less locks, but canalplan now says 8 days again. And the weatherman is still bringing bad news. Will I make it? Stay tuned to find out!

Thank you to everyone at Gap for the nice messages, card, wine and money - I will likely put it towards my anchor or some more wine for the journey.

Let the adventure begin!
