With a lot to do this weekend and a real need to get out for a night under the stars, I choose to skip an annoying train journey and stay local. This was a new camping spot for me (always good fun) and I’m more than impressed with the location in Astwood Bank.
Still a 2 hour walk for my home, meant a nice stroll in the glorious sunshine and this along with the 5 hours I was sat down listening to the radio has topped up my tan beautifully 🙂
Managed a few hours sleep and because it was bedroll only (way to warm for a sleeping bag), woke up with a lovely refreshing layer of dew all over me. Even though I’m not one for sitting down, it was a nice change but you can rest assured I’ll be back to the murderous 20 miles walks the moment I have more time on my hands!
