No 492 - Tough Soles - Ireland Waymarked Trails Completed

Episode Summary

I spoke with Carl and Ellie last in September 2018 when they had 7 trails left to complete on their epic personal challenge of being the first people to walk every Waymarked Trail in the Republic of Ireland. At the time they were tired and almost broke, but still determined to complete the task.

They took on Patreon as a way of getting financial support, something they felt uncomfortable doing, but it gave them the financial and emotional boost they needed to set about the rest of the trails without too much stress.

I'm please to say that in July this year they finally passed through the final stone gateway on the Wicklow Way to be greeted by an enthusiastic crown of family, friends and supporters who wanted to wish them well.
