Long days

Sorry for not writing for a while.  I have been trying to increase my walking distances over the last few days. I get up pretty early and am walking until it starts to get dark. Then it’s time for food and sleep.

Because of three blisters on my right heel plus cold wet weather, I am moving base camp equipment to Shenyang today. (Extra shoes, boots, warm clothes and sleeping mattress amongst other things). Going to try a Chinese high speed train for the first time, and looking forward to it. This will be the second last move of extra equipment and should give my heel a short rest.

Will write reports for the previous days on the train, and post them from Shenyang.
