Why have we carried all this (oh – and a guitar) half way up a mountain in Snowdonia?
30 minutes up the steep trail from our car, is the house named Gelli (pronounced ‘Gethli’). We walked it 27 times, looking like very slow donkeys, to get this lot up here. Russell better be on that stretch machine every night.
You can just make out the house in the picture on the right here.
Our reward is a brilliantly basic life with no electricity, central heating or running water. And some more trips up carrying gas canisters, paraffin and coal. We go to bed in a temperature of 5°C (oh yeah – we carried up a digital thermometer too).Why are we doing this for the next six months? Get our blog on a regular to find out. This year, armed with a laptop and dongle, we’re coming to you right now from an open fire, candle light and a sky full of stars.
Looking forward to a frosty long run tomorrow.
