Over Kellet

I feel totally honoured to have been asked to do the words on only my second run with the pack, and hopefully you will still want me to do it again in the future. Brerphil and I would also take this opportunity to thank you all for making us feel so welcome. Anyway, Sundays run was a very select gathering as a lot of the pack were terrorising the Geordies. We were very well briefed by the Hares at the start, promised a good run with rambo/wimp split, a beer stop, and a treasure hunt. This latter feature was a special because the Hare had lost his car keys somewhere on trail, and we had to find them if we wanted the promised beer stop! We were also two and on. Have hares ever been so nice to a pack, or was flour in short supply?

Off we went up the hill to the first check and the first of many false trails for me. The trail went off through the long grass and up more hills, and I thought Lancashire was flat. An impromptu regroup was called to get past a friendly bull who was happily more interested in his cows and then up even more hills. Getting to the top of the next hill and across the road, my FRB companion froze, and with glee scouped up a set of Mercedes keys from the only patch of short grass we were to see all day. What a lucky hare. At the top of the next hill we were then treated to a lovely view of the three peaks whilst a Buzzard circled overhead, what a lovely way to spend a Sunday morning. The trail then split, with four of us doing the rambo loop and meeting up with some very friendly farmers and their wives on route. It must be the air as down south they were more likely to shoot the pack than laugh and be helpful. The welcome beer stop then appeared, and at one hour into the trail was perfectly placed. The trail then followed footpaths and road to a nice lake and onto the second beerstop (well it was a hot day) at the quarry near Nether Kellet before a welcome wood took us home to the on in.

In the circle madam RA decided random victimisation was the order of the day, and gave everyone a downdown except herself. She obviously wasn't thirsty. The pub was packed and had the good news that we had bowled out the Aussies, a good day made perfect.

On on, Halfpint
