Hi, sorry about the following content. If it does not make sense, then blame Steve. Most of his texts are hard to read so where I have difficulty I shall just copy what he has written. See if you can guess at which point he loses the use of his brain...

5:30 start this morning. Lancaster to Kendal was cold and wet.

John had made us another roadside brekkie, best breakfast yet this week!! Al-fresco again just outside Carlisle. Not far to the border now.

We kicked on to Beattock to get a shorter day in tomorrow and arrived around 4:30. as you can see from the pics, I am suffering from sun stroke.

Downsides to today are 138 miles in the saddel. Bum, Testicles, Leg etc ache to go with the sun stroke.

now the bit I don't understand...

...I am however parryin pains with nice bottle of jb's red...

To be continued....
