Present: Julia, Jenny, (ladies first), Anthony, Andrew, Tom
First of all, stupid girly pink car! It broke down at 12:30am and we had to walk up half of the hill. Got up at 8:30 and had breakfast. Left at 9:30 (Julia and me) to walk to train station to pick up Andrew. (12 miles). Arrived there 12:30pm (Andrew got there at 10:20, so just 2 h late!) got on bus (took 55 minutes for 6 miles!) had another walk for ~ 6 miles to get to hut. Finally arrived at hut at 3:30pm had some small talk. Started drinking!! CCCC joined us (they drink wine!! Disgraceful!!) still drinking…..to be continued
A more rational report
My car made a very good effort in getting us to Wales – it did 299.5 miles but sadly being over loaded by too many people and too many tins of beer, it didn’t make the last 1/2 mile – obviously insignificant in the overall distance!
The driveshaft got broken so 1st and 2nd gear wouldn’t work, but reverse gear did – not quite so useful! However it did earn me a ride in a police car (the 1st time!) and an AA van. I think Tom should be more grateful ‘cos next time he will have to walk all the way not just 20 miles!
