Easter Sunday 21st April 2019 - Lad Law G/SP-008 & Pendle Hill G/SP-005

Gig: Joe Longthorne

Venue: Viva Blackpool

I’d stayed over at a pub in Hull after the Saturday gig.  It was another stunning day, and so the drive west was very pleasant.  I told the satnav to drop me on the side of Boulsworth Hill from where a good track leads most of the horizontal distance to the summit.  There’s just a bit of an uphill pull at the end, but one is well into one’s stride by then so it is soon negotiated.

I elected to just use 2m FM from the handheld in order that I could have time for another summit before work in Blackpool.  In fact, I went very lightweight - no rucksack, no coat, no jumper, no food, no water, no battery, no mast, no trekking poles!  Just me in shirt sleeves, sunglasses and factor 50, with logbook, pencil and FT70D.
