Translayon 2011: the start and finish

Ready for the start in Cléré-sur-Layon (3rd June)
They're off!

Yesterday afternoon we finished the 82 kilometres of so of the Translayon (3rd-5th June) at Chalonnes-sur-Loire, where the Layon joins La Loire. As I suspected there was no possibility of an internet connection while we were on the walk. Even if there was we would hardly have had the time and almost certainly not the energy to post. After the first day, especially, we were completely 'crevette'!

Well done, CRM and Jim.
We were all getting worried after such a long silence, in spite of the forewarning.
But tell me, is it true one could spot a station wagon with UK number plate picking up walkers in hiding along the road? I don’t believe the first word of it.
