Day 1 – Oxfordshire – 43 miles
The day started at 6am listening to the choristers in Magdalen Tower in Oxford followed by many Morris Dancers, a brass band playing old blues music and the excellent Hurly Burly Early in the Morning band on Broadstreet.
After that the day turned into one of remembering that which has been forgotten (chopping board, solar charger, can holder on a stick [don’t ask], and other things that I can’t remember), discovering just how much battery the tablet uses [and consequently how little time it is going to last] and discovering just how bad the Oxford traffic is if you decide to do a run to Halfords in the afternoon.
However, after leaving the yurt at just after lunch time and spending a stressful afternoon chasing down cigarette lighter extensions for the car, I have arrived at Common Leys Farm, I’m fed and typing up my notes for the day. (A routine might be beginning to develop.) However, it’s getting a bit chilly so I might just turn in and complete it tomorrow.
