About the report i wrote a big story about the walk, .e.g.Jonny's lovely CHOSEN BY YOU STEAK PIE :lol: :lol: the down climb that was to icy and we went round the lefthand bypass all the other folk that we meet that day but every yime i went to put a picture on the site crashed so after 3 attempts 5hrs igave up then i found out my picture size was to big :-x so thats why the report is 3 line's i :lol: :lol: gave up trying P.S No far wrong there :lol: :lol:
