Well, they are raising funds for a very good cause. The Joesph Salmon Trust, a charity set up by Dan's good friends Neil and Rachel in memory of their son, Joseph who tragically, at 3 years old, went to sleep one night seemingly healthy and never awoke. Please consider visiting Dan's site, to read more about the walk, or more specifically to make a small donation (or large if you possibly can) to this worthy cause. Just click on the Joseph Salmon icon in the upper right corner of his site or the donate link just below. You can then spend the rest of the weekend with the wonderful feeling that you have just made the world a smaller, and better place. Because you would have done just that. Thanks.

Sometimes, It takes a very good cause to rouse a man, or a group of men, to action. This coming week, Dan from over at All That Comes With It, and several of his buddies from across the pond, have endeavored to rise up and take such action. They will be walking the Dales Way in Yorkshire England, a path that will see them walking 78 miles over the course of 6 days. What, you may ask, would motivate this extreme group of highly skilled and highly trained athletes (see below), to slow their pace down to a walk, yes walk, for 6 whole days?
