Peebles – Moffat: Earwiggo

It has been a busy week. 

A South West Coast Path summary will follow in October, but in the meantime feel free to peruse a slide show.  The short one is here, but if you are called Andrew, or have more time, you may choose this one.

Suicide pact in South Devon?

A report on the walk that Sue and I enjoyed around Woolston on 18 September will have to wait, or forever be forgotten.

Lunch at Latchford Locks

Here’s part of the reason for the busy week – repatriation of a container load (we filled the ‘van’) of possessions after around eight years – it’s like a treasure trove – but where to put them all.

The containerat the back of the 'van' is a similar size to the 'box' on the 'van'

The evening walks have now become ‘night’ walks, although we were blessed with a full moon during our short perambulation around Little Budworth on 23 September.

The Sculpted Chair in Little Budworth Country Park 
On Saturday morning (later today) a trip to Moffat/Peebles will be undertaken, and during the next six days a 130 km circular route will be attempted.  Some friends failed last time.  One of them is a fellow blogger.  ‘Earwiggo Again’ he reports, having scoured the land for reinforcements for this second attempt.  Curious as to what happened last time?  It’s described here.  And the picture below (courtesy of the Pie Man) provides a clue as to the reason for failure.

My pack is now loaded with all manner of goodies - I'm sure it didn't weigh that much last week! Oh well, I'll just have to eat all the food.

Reports are coming in of a Slowman having arrived in Moffat on Friday evening. He was last heard of looking for a Pieman and a Pennine Ranger. I hope he found them.

I'll be leaving Timperley around 8am for the 163 mile trudge up the motorway to Moffat - see you there!

Word: pavered.....well I suppose I will be after the next six days.

We also leave at 8.
Coffee at Tebay?
Hoping that the Sloman & Co are now united, and probably fast asleep....

Hi Martin,
Have a good trip to Peebles. My regards to the team. I hope that you have some better weather than i had in the Lakes this last week. I nearly got blown away on Thursday night.
Hope the Star is as good as ever.
Look forward to reading the tales and i am envious of you all.
