#43 - Soggy day on the hill!

Right from the outset, the rain was falling, and for the 8 hours spent on the hill skills course, it continued. At times we couldn't see our route for the mist and trench foot was setting in, but Richard, my instructor for the day, and I managed to navigate our way back to the cars. Out on the moors we were the only ones willing to brave it, but what a day the fair weather walker missed! It's not always about nice sunny days, the wet ones are just as enjoyable and even more rewarding! Loved every minute of it and the perfect conditions to test my navigation skills.
