We nearly said ‘sod it’ and came home………….

by backpackingbongos

We found out this weekend that it can snow in June in the Lakes!  Along with being very wet, windy and generally miserable.  One Laser comp broken (mine) and an essential part of Richards blown away in the wind.  Luckily we did not cave in to our cravings to be dry and we had a great time once the weather began behaving itself.  I will post a trip report later in the week as I need a long hot soak in the bath!

  1. Sounds interesting 😉 , look forward to the report.

  2. Been reading Mr Slomans weekend up in the Lakes postings and sounds like it was bad. Be looking for that write up.

  3. Yes, do tell us more!.
    Sitting in the LaserComp on a windy evening (not as windy as that one obviously) I’ve sometimes wondered exactly how the tent would fail: broken pole? torn fabric? etc.
