Arrived in Edale on Monday.Sheep everywhere.Walking up to the Nags
Head pub and a herd of sheep being moved down the middle of the road. Hiking's been hard these first 3 days. Buckle on waist strap broke,could find no internet that worked or a sim card,rain heavy for 2 days now,heel blisters. Other than that, the scenery is lovely. After last night's near hypothermia (space blanket yeah)wash out
I am recovering in a b&b and a trip to Hebdon bridge. Found some caribiners to Gerry-rig my waist buckle,plasters and the closest Boulder-like cafe with squash soup and a pot of tea.Also found a sim card for my phone and WiFi. Ive heard the first 4 days are the hardest walking.


  1. Yea!!

    Glad you got started.

    Hope that things go smoothly from here on out.

    And aren't you glad I gave you that space blanket at the last minute....

  2. Sounds like a bit of a rough start, but I hope it only gets better from here on out. Hope you are having fun!

  3. Glad to see you were able to post. Hope you're having fun!

  4. Hi, Sue! So good to see you're on your way! Tom's stem cell transplant has been put on hold for 2-3 months. They are having to try another treatment until then. Good they can freeze the cells for years. I'll keep you posted.
