Too muh to tell on this keyboard but trek to Stonethwaite from Black Sailwentwell. We got to he ridgeof Loft Beckbut couldn’t findthe path. We could see where we wantedto go but could findhow to get there. So we blazed a path. Arrived safe in Honister. Waseasy from thereon.
Wokeup on Weds and weater was bad. Went anoter way to Grasmere along Derwentwater lake to Keswick. Took Carla on double deckerbus dow to Grasmere. No other way.
Toured Grasmere. Saw RAF planes and Wordsworth grave. (I hate this keyboard)…

Oh Caroline, I can only imagine how frustrating trying to type on a crappy keyboard was for you! Oh well, we got the idea of what you were trying to say and we know you do not normally type that way! I can hardly wait for your next update.
16 Miles, nice day, start early, on the Appalachian Trail I average 1.5 – 2 MPH, 30-35 pound pack on really uneven, rocky terrain with lots of ups and downs, with lighter packs…..2 MPH = 8 hours, 16 left……..8 to eat and drink, 8 to sleep. Enjoy the British weather.
Fantastic! Keep up the posting..no worries about the wacky keyboarding. Just assume that you are writing in ancient gaelic ..
Tom is jealous and I am inspired to get a wee bit more exercise into my daily routine.
Hey, what’s going on? I hope things are going well? And there’s not too much rain and mist?
