Beck Foot - The Other Crook O Lune

Hmm, very suspicious, I thought to myself. It was my turn to drive to the r*n this week, so, as is my wont, I visited the website to find out where the h*ll I was going and how the h*ll I was going to get there. As my hash handle suggests, directionality is not one of my strong points, and even getting from Caton to Brookhouse is a struggle since my satnav gave up the ghost. What, you may ask, aroused my suspicions? The words "limited parking" in the hare's instructions, that's what - it sounded like Highway-speak for "no parking". Time to enlist the services of my good friend Mr. Google!

You know the chap - the little man who sits patiently in the corner of the map waiting for someone to grab him by the scruff of the neck and dump him unceremoniously in the middle of the road so he can guide you to your destination. A very good job he did too, until, that is, we got to the very last junction. I turned him through ninety degrees, and was ready to proceed; sadly, though, my tiny companion chickened out at this point - he took one look down the road (I use the term loosely- sheep track with a bit of tarmac slapped on would be more accurate) and scarpered, leaving me on my own.

Not one to give up easily, I hopped into the Google helicopter and set off for a bit of aerial reconnaissance. One thing I was certain of - no way was I going to find a 400 place multi-level pay-and-display car park anywhere on this road! Sure enough, my worst fears were realised, for there below me - visible only by engaging maximum zoom - was a shuffling little layby capable of accommodating at best four cars.

Determined to commandeer one of the aforementioned spaces, I picked up Baldbrick and Upperskirt and set off in good time. On reaching our destination, I realised I had been wrong - there was only room for three cars, and two of the spaces were already occupied by Highway and some random members of the general public! With our advent, the car park was already full, and we could only hope that any subsequent arrivals were good at parking.

Cue Darth Vader. Luckily for us, so good a job did she make of churning up the grass verge at the roadside that the terrified property-owner allowed the rest of our vehicles to park on his drive - it was either that, or watch DV turn green grass into a sea of mud!

Eventually the r*n got underway, and it must be said it was a good one - one of the best this year in my humble view, with a superb trail which was well marked with well thought-out splits of just the right length. Nice one Highway - but next time just get Captain Kirk and Scotty to beam us all directly to the r*n location and forget about the cars, OK?

On on to r*n 605 and Nannypie Lane with Speedbump and Dormouse. Hmm, that layby looks a bit on the small side.....
