The Long Run Home

Was at work at Plas y Brenin today, and decided that I would run part of the way home, i had arrange a friend to pick me up when he passed me on his way home about an hour after I left the centre. I have yet to hear his excuses, maybe he stay to go bouldering, or maybe he forgot me and drove past, either way i was abandoned, so had a 12 mile jog back, so as I write this i am totally knackered.

I think it was he forgot that he had offered the lift, as he is very special that way. He reportedly turned up for a ski tour, having forgotten his skin for his ski’s that allow him to go up the hill without sliding down. At the top of the lift, he asked who had his skins! Similarly He also asked me once have been teaching at Idwal Slabs with him whether I had picked his ropes up from the bottom of the crag. ‘Well no Dave, I did carry YOUR rope down from the crag for YOU!’

Anyway lesson learnt, don’t rely on the special one, although I should thank him for the extra training. If he does it again I will have to put the ‘special’ image I have of him!
