Reuben has been eyeing up my rucksack by the door, possibly noticing that his gear is not sitting next to it. I’m off first thing in the morning minus Reuben for a backpacking jaunt in the Yorkshire Dales to meet some other outdoor types. There has been talk of camping on summits to eat dinner whilst the sun sets. Looking at the weather forecast that may well be a little bit optimistic as the forecast is for gusts of wind to reach 80mph on the Yorkshire hill tops. It’s also looking decidedly chilly after the recent mild autumn.
That’s why I’m going in fancy dress.
