Brushed the frost off the tent this morning. Packed up and away at 7:30. Climbed up out of Sedbergh across the fells to Orton, and Temple Sowerby. Then more climbing and on to Langwathby and Lazonby. Climbing again to a high viewpoint. The Garmin was telling me to go left and clearly showed a road, but there wasn’t one. Went back a little way just in case I missed the turn, but nothing. On closer inspection, it was trying to send me along a bridleway. I carried on for a mile or so and took the next left. That eventually re-joined the route passing through a lovely village, then on to Brampton. Picked up some food there for later. A large groups of cyclists came along and also stopped. Must have been thirty of them on an organized three day ride. Had a chat with them while I downed a pack of mini apple pies. Liz had looked for camp sites in the area, and I decided to carry on to Longtown where she said a site was not far from there. As it happened I found another 300 yds off the A7.
Black Stig was with me again, so I took another picture of him. He said nothing, just copied me in my every move!
68 tough miles today. 4560 ft climbed.
