Edgy



Rab Mini MM 7.2.15
Eastern Moors

A new record for Team Ibuprofen. Our/my first navigational error of the day was a wrong turn in Bakewell. Five miles before the startline. Der! Thankfully this detour meant that we started later than planned, giving the other teams time to leave footprints in the snow for us to follow. No more nav errors there then.

The only other minor setbacks were: the HD card on my faithful Olympus was full( hence no pictures) and the peat bog slush puppy up on the moors. After trudging through slush water and peat for what seemed like forever, I thought my feet would never warm up.

Other Highlights and randoms-

Pea soup, flapjack, bread and butter with marmite :)

Catching up with; Nick, Matt, Ike, Martin and Rich.

My first time on Curber, Froggat and White Edges.

Harveys mapping.

A big thank you to the BogRock Partnership, who have taken over the running of this years Rab Mini Mountain Marathon series. It is good to see Dark and White have passed the Mini MMs on to a safe pair of hands.
