What a bank holiday, I spent 6 1/2 hours in white conditions up Bleaklow on Sunday and then like an idiot I did it again yesterday for another 4 hours. I don’t think I have ever been as wet without swimming. Now there is a very good saying
“No such thing as bad weather, only bad gear” or I’ll rephrase that to clothing before someone comments on the drugs link..lol
Saying that my kit did hold up rather well apart from my day bag rucksack which gave up the ghost and basically rotted off my back poor thing. On a plus note I went along to those nice people at Go Outdoors and bought a spanking new one this morning, oh joy its an Osprey Kestrel 38 Red really nice and if your into your kit bags they are great quality. Out tomorrow to give it a run through.
As you may have guessed this shot isn’t from Bleaklow! instead it’s still part of my Anglesey Wales shoot and probably will be for a few weeks until I have finished going through them all so please bear with me.
I did my good deed for the day yesterday and helped a broken down motorist on the top of Snake Pass who’s RX8 Wankle engine decided to blow up on him with plumes of smoke, I gave him a lift back down into Glossop so he could call the RAC. Probably a tow or low loader job, it had gone when I got back down from the B-29 crash site. my halo is in the post!
Anyway onwards and upwards, much to do, but first it’s a walk with Stormy
