21 miles – our longest day
After the buzz of yesterday with a crowd of helpers, today was much quicker.
We found out yesterday that with a 10ft high bear on a platform – making him 13ft high – it’s not possible to walk on footpaths due to overhanging trees, the narrowness of the paths and fences and stiles. So today we re-jigged the route amd proceeded along minor roads with Clarion on his trolley. Crew joined and left during the day and Clarion and I walked 21 miles. I have discovered the joy of Ibuprofen maximum strength gel for tired knees!
I had only done a short test with Clarion on the trolley before we left so it was a great relief that it works so well. We did have to do some tinkering to make a backpack into a chest and shoulder harness to pull him and then all was well.
