DAY 4 Pushing on

Slept well at the tree apart from the moon being so bright. Need some eye pads lol.

I was awake around four but I havnt mastered the quick get away yet.

I eventually emerged on trail by 7.30. It was approximately  5 to the water tank. I started off well  and it didn’t seen long until I arrived. I thought I saw Hawkey  and Kevin ahead.

I pushed on it was lovely to have a breeze. The trail began to climb and my little  engine  struggled. 

In the distance I could see a great tree and on this trail  shade is what you desire. As I aproched.i could see Kevin and Hawkeye. 

Hey guys great to see you both again

I sat  for 30 min before heading  back out,  the sun was baking ,it’s just relentless. It was  several hrs later that the next cache appeared. I found some shade  and crashed .from this spot you can ring the lical shop and they will pick you up  to hiawasssi. For a cold soda and more….

But no I pushed on trying to get to the next water container.

After another’s  hour  I had to crash again. This heat is just a killer It wipes me out.i took  30 mins before  pushing  on but i was beginning to struggle.

I reay wanted to throw up my tent but you cant as you would cook alive. 

Eventually  I could see a number of GREEN trees  could that be it?

Ahead I could see the boys continuing  on..Fuck I said to no-one  and set off after them although  my feet felt like lead.

I really had had enough.but then something shinny ahead

Oh the water tower  whoop. But it was up hill and roasting .As I got nearer they apeared a stream of water. .Normally you have to climb a shaky ladder to get water from the top hatch.

But today it was flowing from the overflow

 Stick your head under snail 

I did as i was told wow fantastic.i stripped off washed my stinky shirt  and socks. And hung them on a fence to dry.

I then found a spot to camp although yes it was still baking. 

We sat around in the  shade before putting up our tents.

I cooked dinner but could only eat half. But my cup of tea  was divine.  Night all 15 miles most so far but I’m destroyed 

Mileage 15
