|Steep up through Arncliffe Woods this morning.|
|A stone in the path, purpose unknown. Just need to find stone B now!|

The North York Moors are the best walking I've experienced so far. Lovely views across the Cleveland hills of lovely countryside.

Finished walking at 2pm, arriving at Clay Bank Top. Knees were hurting due to all the walking downhill today, but plenty of time to rest before tomorrow. Walked 12 miles, pleased with the progress today. Have decided to extend the walk tomorrow as the plan originally had been to do 9 miles but I reckon I can push on a bit more and then shorten the route on Saturday.
|Stuart and Gary 400 metres up on top of Kirby Bank. (That's 1,312 feet in old money!)|
Meanwhile Gary's Dad, Alan went to find a launderette today to attend to his duties. He asked a lady in Stokesley where the nearest one was. She asked him where he was from. "Nottingham" he replied. "Well" she said "Up here we have washing machines at home you know!!." Brilliant. Happy to report laundrette eventually located some miles away and all smalls washed!
