    Tim, your last paragraph captures so perfectly why we go cycle touring.
    So many times I have asked myself why am I doing this! But it is the highs that make the effort and discomfort so, so worthwhile: the joy of travelling slowly under your own steam; the ability to stop and stare whenever you want, seeing things that you would never see if you were in a car; the people who stop and talk to you; the feeling of satisfaction when you pull up to camp knowing that you’ve got there under your own steam and are completely self-sufficient; the joy (and sometimes the despair!) of being out in all weathers; and finally, the memories that you cherish – the good times that bring you a sense of wonder and happiness, and the bad times, which never seem quite so bad with the passing of time!
    I wish you all a wonderful, joyful adventure and hope that you make it to Shetland this time!
