Paul we'll miss you. I hope the globetrotting compensates in some small way through your undoubted bereft moments.

I didn't go on the Knotbury-avoiding recce on Saturday after all. I'll wing it on the day in the dark. I did enjoy a blast at the Crowden Horseshoe fell race on Sunday though. Ooh it were mucky. Most of us succumbed to the bog monsters on the return leg.

I got into the Lakeland 100 after several aborted attempts due to system overload. I probably ended up paying three times if every aborted attempt was charged as apparently happened to others.

I'll see you fellow Bullockers on Saturday. Bring on the Indian summer.

Right I feel a recce from Earl Sterndale coming up on Saturday - 07:47 train arrival at Buxton and 08:45 442 bus departure to ES. Anyone care to join me?

That's good BSH weather news, j8.

What are people's opinions on turning second right to bypass Knotbury on the way down to Three Shires Head? Worth it? I've only ever turned third right through Knotbury. I plotted it on Tracklogs last night and it's a few hundred yards longer with same ascent, so only worth it if underfoot is better that that stony track from Knotbury?

Some of us have to work today.

Had a nice plod to Edale on Saturday (well, at least it was nice after the rain had stopped). 20 miles, 5 hours. Caught up with a chap called Steve on the climb to Chinley Churn. His GPS had failed so he decided to abandon his plans and tag along with me instead. It was nice to have some company. I tried the moortop approach to Edale Cross past Brown Knoll. It's good underfoot and there's less descent + ascent. Only down side is it's a mile longer, taking us past Edale Cross so we have to backtrack.

Daz you picked a better day for your recce. How did yours go?

I'm doing the BSH route to Edale tomorrow, starting from home at 07:30 and passing the Devonshire Park start around 08:00. I'll be mostly walking with perhaps a bit of jogging if the back's up to it (I pulled it last Sunday). Train back from Edale with change at New Mills. Anyone care to join me, see you at 8am at the start tomorrow.

Good sizzling again by the speedsters. I was well chuffed to be only 59 seconds outside my PB of Sizzler 2 with the Lakeland 100 still ringing true upon my being. I so wanted to go to bed beforehand but so pleased I Sizzled instead. Felt much better for it.
