Walk Report

Box Hill Hike and Ranmore Ramble, Saturday 13th August 2016
24 walkers, 20 miles - leader Chris Dent
Around 24 started the hike, but some dropped out en route and we finished with about 19. I don't vouch for those being accurate numbers, though they're about right. I remember a conversation at the end that there were five dropouts (again, I think it was five) with one wag saying it always happens on Chris's walks. That wag, a certain Mr Christopher Dent, added that they'd spoken to him about their plans before the group set off.
