The streams on the moorland section were both rideable. Much drier this time, which was good otherwise it would have been ...

ATK, yes I'm still trying to buy non-china produce where appropriate. The boots are from China but appear to have a massive blurb on the Arcteryx website about thier factory ethics and background (they were replacements as I doubt I could afford originals/rrp by them).

To be honest the dogs done more damage on that front. He managed to split the end of his tail open and has left blood whacks around the place.
