Static meet day 2


The good weather continues. Today three members were up and out on a walk almost before the rest of us had cleared our sleeping bags. The Dorset contingent had a lazy breakfast followed by another mug of tea as we decided on the days walking direction. We managed to leave camp at 1100hrs completing a 16mile day walk. This was at about my distance max in my present state of health and i did find the last few miles harder than normal. Tonight we put the world to rights at the village pub. I have had news from Ian and his brother on their LEJOG . Thursday night they made Gloucester. Last night they were at Shrewsbury and tonight they are at St Helens. Ian tells me they are camping on the touchline of the Rugby pitch. So far they have had no punctures and both bodies and bikes are holding up well.

Hello there - dropped in here via the BPC website and other links. I'm new to BPC (though not to walking, climbing kayaking, biking....) and had meant to come along this weekend but didn't make it. Maybe catch up another time soon.

A few trips and things on my blog too - Mid Wales and Pembrokeshire are favourite haunts as I split my time between Pembrokeshire and Wiltshire.

Cheers
