Following on from my end to end in 2009 I wanted to do another long trip but starting and finishing at home. I played around with several ideas but decided on going to the westernmost point in Wales to the easternmost point in East Anglia. I wanted to go along quiet roads as far as possible but I would use busier ones when it made sense. My initial route plans showed this would be about 900 miles which was the sort of distance I was after.
I was aiming to go in June, if possible straddling the longest day. However, I'd be camping so I could be flexible right up to the last moment.
