Driving down the A66 towards Keswick Must be one of the most inspiring few miles of road in the United Kingdom. For me this time was more poignant as it was the first time I had been back since my accident on the first of January (see previous post). I was spending the weekend in Borrowdale with the intention, hopefully of visiting the fell it all happened on.....
