Overnight stop near Oxford.<br />

Keath Armstrong arrives in Bournemouth with his three husky dogs Sakari, Nukka and Nala after travelling 318 miles from Manchester to raise money for cystic fibrosis.<br />
<br />
Barking mad...<br />
<br />
A man has moved 260 miles away and made the entire journey on foot with just his dogs to help drag his possessions.<br />
<br />
Keath Armstrong, 32, originally planned to move from Crumpsall in Manchester to Bournemouth in Dorset the conventional way, with a removal van.<br />
<br />
But he decided to walk the massive distance as a way to raise money for Cystic Fibrosis, after his friends Richard and Carl Jones died from the disease.<br />
<br />
Keath and his huskies walked between 11 and 30 miles each day and the journey took almost one month to complete.<br />
<br />
He used a three wheeled sled to carry his belongings which was pulled by the three dogs, Nala, four, Nukka, five, and Sakari, nine.<br />
<br />
Keath, who worked as a waiter in a restaurant but quit to do the challenge, camped every night along the way.<br />
<br />
He originally planned to make the trip by walking along the roads but realised it was too dangerous and opted to follow canals.<br />
<br />
He raised more than 3,100 pounds for the charity which was three times more than what he had hoped to do.
