The walk is rumoured to eventually involve the making of a quarter of a million pounds for charity following the TV programme about it. North Yorkshire Plod Loll (Laury?) is going to London again to meet the MetPlods for further planning of exercise COASTPLOD. Loll now has paperwork for the event showing the masterplan including route, times, dates, checkpoints and will post to me before he goes. He invited me to go to London with him to meet the MetPlods and take part in the planning. I declined. It would cost me too much time and money. Also, meetings and committees scare me.
Latest estimates are about 15 blind people, 15 guide dogs and 15 MetPlods on the walk itself. Loll will be on the event driving one support van for the 2 weeks. Others will drive N more. There will be lots of producers, directors, journalists and TV crew covering the event. I've heard that before about other RAYNET exercises but they've never materialised so far. There again, I'm a cynic.
The general plan is that as the event is over two weeks and many people
won't find it easy to get free time during the day, we split the work up into sections (or any other way) so that by all working together, comms will be
provided over the two weeks. No exact details of comms required yet, but still looks like they'll be needed between the walking party and the N support
parties. About 28 RAYNET people are interested so far. More details when I have them.
