We were met at the Rock and Pillar Station by my GKB with
the car and, another flask of hot water. For a hot cuppa. He was such a lovely patient support person, he drove us back to camp
and then took us to the shop to get ice creams :)
Originally we had intended to walk to Hyde which was 28 k's in all, but were so pleased to see our great supporter with the car we decided to stop. It was all a learning curve and set us up for a more relaxed walked the next day and more realistic expectations.
But I'll tell you about that another day. Thank you if you have stayed the distance - I really should have warned you to make a pot of tea before you started reading.
