I’m now beginning to think that Mike is a bit of a sadist when it comes to C&W walk planning
Firstly it was navigation training on Bollihope in the dark and snow ...god it was hard and cold and wet and dark
Then Dodd Fell when we were met by weather more suitable to the arctic....we all got wet through to our undies
The final straw at Reeth on Sunday ....slipped and tripped in the knee deep mud and injured a tendon in my ankle and the doctor says no walking for 6/8 weeks......chance would be a fine thing, another week and I’ll be out and about and hoping to get out on David’s walk around Durham next Sunday
I too, am beginning to think instead of map reading lessons mike should teach us bog snorkelling , and mud swimming
All the same he is teaching us the rudimentary skills of mountain survival all be it from the inside of clouds.
Thanks Mike keep it up.
