Not the best of conditions then Alan. Sounds a bit like what I had on my first S - N trip.
I also see that you too opted for the railway into Alston and the direct line, avoiding Dufton, as I did.
I am considering entering the Spine race over the normal route in January, if I can manage to get a lot more running in between now and then. Just done a trial weight measure of the compulsary kit and it comes in at 6.5 kg. That's very light for me but includes cooking gear and spare gas, two days food, tent etc, but does not include water.
Anyway sorry your plan didn't work out, but it can't get that bad next time, can it!?

As slogger says anything has to be better than the conditions this time.The Cheviot section is drying out slowly and times are getting back to normal Byrness hill is still heavy going but then it is even in a good summer. See you when you get your sunny spell. joyce
P.S. Thanks for the lovely review.
