5 walkers, 15 miles - leader Ron Williamson
"When the going gets tough the tough get going"
Six of the best from a few days ago where reduced to the Famous Five who came prepared to face the little used footpaths in this part of Essex. Bare legs and knobbly knees were the order of the day, just right to crash through the undergrowth and beat the nettles into submission.
An unplanned extra stop at a local hostelry did wonders for morale, and ensured that the expedition was completed successfully. Boy it was hot! and hay fever came on really bad.
No pictures this time as we must maintain secrecy but suffice to say one member became extremely excited when our objective was revealed as the local Wetherspoon and another used the opportunity to continue training in the art of the slope.
