near Holton West to Horton in Ribblesdale

After a successful wild camp ( ie the farmer didn't find us! ) we headed for our first section of the Ribble way a pleasingly flat ten miles along the river valley the trail takes its name from quite uneventful , we then reached Settle for a rations restock where as we packed the rucksack an anonymous lady donated 10 pounds to the charity!
Then into the talbot inn for a pint and a jacket spud for lunch.
With cracking views of the local fells we arrived early at our campsite and to reach our official half way point !
On arrival at my favourite eccentric campsite we are invited into the reception marquee, and given a fine single malt whisky and offer of soup.....very nice too! Also in the marquee was another lejoger named Steve this one from Australia ( see pic ) another friend for Alfie :)

    Half way there already! That's quite amazing!

    I can't imagine anything stopping you reaching JOG now!

    Well done Andy, you're truly an inspiration.

    Alfie looks as though the experience isn't doing him any harm either!

    Keep it up - everyone is SOOO proud of you!
