Avoid Spider Shelob and The Deep of The Bog

He gallantly stepped aside to let me pass on a narrow forest path. He told me later with a big grin that he was trying to avoid the spider webs.

If I walked in front of him, the road would be paved – so to speak.
Unfortunately, I wasn’t tall enough 🤣

Your bog buddy has to be taller than you. ‘Beth from About Life and Hiking in Cumbria’ gives excellent advices how to avoid the biggest pitfalls, literally. Beth Pipe’s humor is contagious.

“You will require a “bog buddy”. A “bog buddy” is some poor sap who is conned into walking ahead of you, thus identifying the routes not to take. NOTE: for a “bog buddy” to be truly effective they need to be taller than the deepest sections of the bog.” 1. Survival tips for the bog bound

‘Lakeland Walking Tales’ introduces four books about walking. 2. Four Great Books About Lakeland Or Walking
Among them is Beth Pipe’s book: ‘Gin, Cake & Rucksacks’. About a fun tour of the Lakeland distillery with Karen Guttridge, a Facebook friend.

Have fun walking. Watch out for yourself and each other. Watch out for Shelob and do not enter bogs in ‘Stealth Mode’.

Have a Wonderful Happy New Year all of You ✨🎇🎈🎉

Almost A Christmas Tale

The snow fell, buses and trucks slipped off the road. Cars were stuck. Trees broke and blocked the railroad tracks
Two women had the closing guard in a shop close to the large furniture house, Ikea. They were allowed to stay overnight together with 30 customers and employees who also were forced to stay overnight due to the severe snowstorm.

Department store manager Peter Elmose said the staff prepared for a cozy evening in the staff dining room with food and delicacies, beer and the opportunity to watch football.
The overnighters slept in the department store’s exhibited beds and sofas and were offered coffee and rolls in the morning.

It happened on Wednesday in northern Jutland
It’s film material 🙂
