Been wondering why the blog posts have (almost) dried up ?*
Well, the last couple of months have seen actually ticking the GBG take precedence over writing about it.
Back when GBG22 dropped (ugh), a mere month after the other tickers got theirs mind, I wrote that I had five hundred and eighty-two (582) pubs to complete the GBG in-year.
Yesterday near Ilminster, that became one hundred (100) pubs to do, just like the second sequel to that true film about the Spartans. Ticking the GBG is MUCH tougher than fighting the Persians.
This is still a tough ask, with multiple ferries, midges, Covid closures and the usual challenges of life ahead. But it can be done. Pubmeister did it.
And here are those 100.
Let me tell you, getting to Stornoway or Solva will be a doddle compared to finding out when some of those pubs are actually open.
100 pubs spread over the West Country, South & West Wales, and Scotland. 3 months to do it.
I’m taking next week off to keep the parents hydrated and recover from a week completing Cornwall.
Worryingly, I’m 166 pubs behind on this blog. Which means you might get 24 posts a day for the next week so I can catch up and do a Top 100 pub-by-pub countdown.
Which leads me to the questions for you;
a) Which pub WILL I finish at ?
b) Which pub SHOULD I finish at ?
c) Which pub is this ?
Right folks, buckle down and stay out of the heat.
