Anyway, an enthusiastic group of helpers, 2 Quad bike trips, a couple of bottles of wine and
cakes, and its all ready to go ( magic ingredient: some kindling sticks soaked in Diesel). Jaffa
A few of us had decided to stay up there all night and camp or bivi, then tidy things away first thing in the morning. It was a little bit cold and having to remove a slug from the side of your face is not the best way to greet the morning, better than having a dream about eating a liquorice allsort though.
The Skylarks were up and singing at 4am, so drift in and out of sleep for a bit and then up at 6am for a brisk walk around to get warm. Half an hour later Mark was appearing out of his tent – saying how comfy it was! Kettle on for a brew and then Jenny appeared out of her tent leaving her friend to slumber on. Jenny wearing her Teddy Bear furry jacket and walking about barefoot through the bilberry, definitely a Fairy Child!
Cups of tea, chat, and watch the early morning mist rolling over the ridge between Mam Tor and Losehill.
Definitely need another excuse to Bivi out again!Area Ranger
