Today we left Dent early………well eight in the morning…. to traverse the A66 which crosses the Pennines, the backbone of Britain. The weather was real weather, driving rain and forty mile per hour winds. The forecast was for gusts of sixty miles per hour by noon. So away we went…………..It was fine until we started the climb up the hill. I was going to stop for a ‘greasy spoon’ breakfast but the yard was full of curtain siders, all the empty ones pulling their curtains back to reduce windage. One poor soul was on his side in the middle of the road. I must be getting old, I found it stressful driving the camper which is just a toy compared to a thirty two tonner.
I’m sitting in an unusual place, for me, a campsite attached to a Working Mans Club in Hurworth. The river Tees flows past our door and I pray it continues to do so, the way it’s raining it could flow through the door. The wind is rocking the van and I’mm hitting all the wrrong keyss.
Now I get to the cheating bit……………….not a picture today so I’m going to post my favourites from the last week in Dent. the weather was pretty grim but if I rug up and treat it as a job it’s bearable. Bearable if one is into self flagellation!
Tomorrow I’m heading into the big town to buy a book on video editing……….It’s a nightmare, both going into town and video editing. Perhaps I should start with the basics. Get half descent footage. It is difficult in rain and fog. Just realised why the movie industry is in California the weather is the same every day, helps with continuity.
Have a good weekend, we will see what tomorrow brings.
