A day of ups and downs: none of them mountainous

Woke to Lovely day but worried about down trouser delivery. However, was told there would be someone in so P and I went out.

Yersterday’s experience w. GPS dying fast persuaded me that I needed a dedicated GPS so I went to see what was available. It was maddening since my excellent Garmin Geko 315 is in a drawer at home. Still: new kit…

I bought the Garmin, and 2 blokes at Cotswold in Grasmere tried much harder than I had a right to expect to help me download and transfer a set of Wainwright waypoints. We failed, but that was mainly because Gamin don’t include the drivers in the box. Doh… Endless thanks to the 2 lovely blokes at Cotswold, Grasmere. I’ve never encountered such helpful people in a walking shop.

Back to BB and started marking up new 1:25s. As I was doing that BB owner knocked on door 2 tell me my parcel hadn’t arrivred. Several frantic phone calls later (plus email intervention from Sloman since mine isn’t working) I had a call from PHD to say they’d defo been posted. By 5pm I’d written them off as a casualty of the postal strike but they arrived at 6pm as I was leaving 4 dinner. Hurrah‚ and thank you PHD!

MTP final tonight…Eep! I′ve stocked up on crisps despite excellent dinner at the Jumble Room. Mmmmmm…

Big thanks to Alan, Colin and Darren 4 helping me today w. my GPS and trouser problems 🙂
