  Kidder arse was suffering today so urgent creams were needed to soothe his tender little bits. Operation over the pair headed off and soon encountered thorn covered lanes, so no wonder they picked up some punctures. Chiefy's UST tyres stayed inflated but he would have to patch them up sooner or later. The RAF were doing low flying runs, the jets were screaming up and down the valleys and the pair kept diving for cover.

The Tan inn was beckoning so Kidder & Chiefy cranked it and stopped for a quick bite and of course a pint or two. Lunch over the pair follow the Pennine Way heading downhill to the river Swale, stopping of at the waterfall to take in the views & top it up a bit with there bodily fluids.

The pair navigate the valley contours and stopped for a rest overlooking Muker and Keld, the sun was out so they dried off some of there sweaty kit. Kidder & Chiefy turned on the power from here to Reeth, as a cream tea were beckoning. Kidder rolled into Reeth on a flat rear so the first priority was strawberry jam and cream tea's.

After eating there buns and swatting the wasps the pair sort of raced up the hill to the Grinton YHA. As usual Kidder & Chiefy ended up sharing a dorm with a couple of nutter's. After a welcomed shower and tea they headed down to the pub for a few pints and recall the days events.

Bedtime beckoned so the pair headed back up the hill in pitch blackness guided by the stars to the mad house...and more of our Japanese friends.
