#45 - Day 2: IVYBRIDGE to SCORRITON

Up and out on the trail at 9.15am, aware of the forecast for rain in the afternoon. I needn't have worried, the day was perfect for walking, pity the same couldn't be said for my feet! This is getting tough already, two blisters on each little toe meant every step was agony. Passed two lads going in the opposite direction, nearing the end of their Two Moors trek, how I envied them! Made it to the end of day two, and took great pleasure in popping the blisters! Tomorrow is a big one, 20 miles across Dartmoor, and it remains to be seen if I can patch my plates of meat up sufficiently. The challenge is hanging in the balance! :-(
