Andy’s BGR Leg 5 – 10 May

On Friday night Andy decided to delay his midnight start by three hours, or so, to let the worst of the weather clear out which meant a later than usual departure from Honister for the last leg. Drifting a little from his revised schedule caused some concern for those of us with nothing to do other than wait at the slate mine. Somewhat ironically this concern wasn’t shared by the rest of the interested world who were able to follow his progress on Live Tracker.

Behind schedule but with time in hand the drag up Dale Head must have seemed endless even although we were recovering lost time. This continued over Hindscarth and Robinson so that by Chapel Bridge all doubts had gone and the only thing remaining was to enjoy the steady jog back to Keswick. A real privilege to be with you this morning on the way back to Keswick Andy, thanks for the invite!
