The First Leg - Buttermere to Red Pike,

So we're high enough out of the valley in Buttermere to get a signal so here is the first post. We arrived last night about 9.40 and made it to the bridge hotel for a few cheeky
pints before closing. We spent a few giggley moments re-organising our packs and settled down for the night. The youth hostel in Buttermere makes the logistical process behind this trip so much easier. We ordered packed lunches last night to save time and its not bad value either. We collected these and set off carrying what feels to me like my own weight on my back. It feels strangely relaxing to be setting off into the amazing landscape and as usual its a humbling experience whatever the weather. The scree of red pike awaits
