Busker Phil's Walk
Tuesday 21st August 2012
Phil wrote back in June:
later today (Tuesday 18 June) I start my walk from Lands End to John O'Groats! Its been a life time ambition for me! I will be busking in as many places as possible along the way and mostly sleeping beneath the stars (or rain clouds)! I'm raising money to buy trees and other plants on the vegan, organic woodland gardening project, Plants for a Future, in Penpol!
If you would like to, sponsor me you can send cheques payable to Plants for A Future to Rich Morris, 1 Lerryn View, Lerryn, Lostwithiel, Cornwall, PL22 0QJ!
Thanks ever so much! Love to you all! May your darts always be straight ones and your rice bowl always be full!
There is now a facebook page documenting Phil's progress http://www.facebook.com/BuskerPhilWalk

Message to Richard Morris on 13th August:
Phil has already passed Pitlochry, just south of the Cairngorms, Pitlochry is one of the first places he ever busked. In Phil's own words from Monday 13 August:
Busking in pitlochry after 22 years was great! I made 30 pounds! Busking there 22 years ago changed my life! Its where I became Busker Phil! Cant remember what i made 22 years ago but i remember coming back 2 camp with lots of cans of special brew! Just been through Blair Atholl! I wonder if the little house on the hill is still there! Settling down with a bottle of cider now! Heading off into the wilderness 2morrow!
Message to Richard Morris on 19th August:
I'm alive and well and I've reached Inverness! I enjoyed coming through the highlands though it was a struggle and I’m looking 4ward 2 the last stretch along the east coast!
Stop Press: Phil has reached Golspie on the north east coast of Scotland! He is now just 73 miles from John o Groats. (Thursday 23rd August)
