Thoughts then turned to my onward route , and next camp , intermittent 4g signal allowed me to check in and more importlantly - check the latest weather forecast . more of the same was predicted .
i weighed up my options , then decided - given the forecast , it would be foolish to continue , it was
a very hard choice to make - but i think the right one . i decided to head for the garburn pass ( escape routes are a very important part of route planning ) .
From there I took the bridleway back to kentmere , then the bridleway back to longsleddle.
thanks for reading , I plan on documenting my backpacking exploits on here , so more will be added in due course.
for now I will leave you with some pics from my return journey.
