Pies and Ryes

by backpackingbongos

The gear is laid out on the bed once again for a final idiot check before it gets stuffed (sorry I meant placed methodically) into my pack.  An early morning start tomorrow to meet up with Martin for a short backpack in the Howgills.  The weather is looking pretty shocking to be honest and a sheltered camp spot will need to be sought if we want a peaceful night.  We hope to meet up with the Pieman of the north with Bruno on Saturday morning for a round of steep and grassy hills before being blown back to our cars.  I may need to add some ballast to stop myself being blown away on the hill tops.

Then I think that I may give the hills a rest until February.  I am bloody knackered after the last two weekends out.  Looking forward to being tucked up in my tent tomorrow night for a good long sleep.

Sunday it will be about seeing a man about a dog, so to speak.  More about that at a later date.
