JOGLE Day 29 29/05/17 Middleton – Tan Hill 17 miles

Not many photos today – in fact just one!! Weather thoroughly gloomy all day drizzle and low cloud giving Chris and me a couple of directional problems over the moors out of Teesdale into Lunedale and Baldersdale then eventually to our only possible lunch shelter in the tunnel under the A66. It didn’t help either when my GPS froze so I had to disconnect the battery and lost my trip data. Today’s journey stats therefore based on my phone ViewRanger App. The conversation and banter kept our spirits up and we found a pink Manchester balloon some on Cotherstone Moor – possibly the furthest away one has been recovered?

We plodded on in the drizzle, choosing the road option to Tan Hill rather than the bog of Sleightholme Moor. Zero views and the long trudge made easier with Chris’s company as we talked our way eventually to the Inn and our camp for the night.

  1. Shame you had such a damp day and then your GPS issue…..thank goodness for phone apps! Hope you dried out and today’s been better. Looking forward to seeing you both tomorrow.

    1. Thanks Claire – we have had a real good time regardless of the weather. Yesterday would have been really tough alone. x

  2. Hi Dave,
    It sounds like you had a good couple of days with Chris – he looked great, posing by the funny gate.
    Think that you have reached Yorkshire now . . . perhaps walking with Josy and Simon today?
    Hope that you have a good day and the weather is kind.
    Thinking of you and cheering you onwards.
    Love to you, Cath and the rest of your support team!
    Lulu & Mike xx
