A classic update
on 24 August 2010
Back in the 70's my best mate and I set off from St Bee's Head full of the joys of spring.
It was however, October and for the first two full days it rained and rained and our already overstuffed packs got heavier and heavier.
By the time we packed up a sodden tent and contemplated the slog out of Borrowdale, we'd had enough, squelched aboard the bus to Keswick, changed out of our wet gear in the bus station loos (yeeuuch!) and caught the next bus home.
Buying Chris Jesty's excellent update of my Wainwright original brought it all back!
I can't wait to have another go. This time though, in deference to my increasing decrepitude, I'll travel light and stay in b&bs.
If you're planning to tackle the Coast to Coast, then this wonderfully entertaining book, nicely enhanced by showing the route in colour, is the only guide you need.
