good day, bit drizzley at first but faired off pretty quick, me and chalky followed my improvised detour using the trusted OS map while jimmy and lena followed his gps. we ended up miles in front whilst jimmy waded through bog to near quitting :lol: on yhe way back to the campsite we dropped into a pub and quaffed dog ruff cider, after 12hrs walking it done the job fairly quick, tried to get the wives on the walkie talkies to come along but it got confused so we headed back to a good bollocking for being away for 12hrs and coming back **** :D
