Was interested in the pot cozy method of prepping the food, not sure what that is about, and whether there is any particular advantage in having the gas supply remote from the burner, lower height of burner and more stable perhaps ?
Thanks Woods, glad you liked itOK...How Awesome was that!!!....great post c-h...loved the pics and the narative...woods
Thanks Doc, yeah it is a great little trail for the most part (bit too much road walking perhaps). I'd done circular walks of up to 30 miles in the past but going A-B and seeing the scenery change really made it feel like a journey.Excellent trip report, Copperhead. I'd not heard of this trail before.
We're lucky in the UK to have plenty of cracking long distance paths, but I've never been able to get time off work for the big ones like the Pennine Way or the South West coast path (over 500 miles, IIRC). It's good to see more trails like this one are appearing - long enough to be a serious expedition, but short enough to do in days, not weeks.
Thanks Sandbender. Well the beer pics might of been a little unnecessary but I can't convey how good it was to have a cool crisp pint after drinking 'muddy swimming pool' flavour water for a couple of days .I enjoyed that, nice to see some beer pics too.
Thanks . That's a good question; I thought a lot, and time to think is a real luxury sometimes, putting the world to rights in your own head as you watch the scenery roll by. I can't give a better answer than 'Life, the universe and everything'. Although towards the last couple of days it was 'A pint, a cheeseburger and a sit down' .i really liked reading this report.its an inspiration to me to do something simular.i had a dvt a few years ago and still not right and hope the exercise will help.one thing i always want to ask of solo walkers on multi day hikes is what do you think about for all those miles.thoughts and feelings.i know for me id think of everything past present and future.
Hey cheers I like that photo too. Would love to do the Cleveland Way but this year I'm doing the Dales Way in August.amazing photos, the one with the deer running away is a classic you ought to send it to John Craven's countryfile photo comp! You doing the cleveland this year then?
