“Where did it all go wrong,
Those readers of a certain age
will recognise the above quotation. Uttered by the waiter on room service, as
he entered George Best’s hotel bedroom, to see him in bed with Miss World with
thousands of pounds of notes scattered on the bed covers.
So, where could or did it all go
wrong for you on your Dales Way walk?
The Dales Way footpath is not
like the Appellation Trail, where getting lost could end up with you getting
drowned, starving to death or eaten by a grizzly bear. It could however cause
you and the persons’ backyard you are straying into, inconvenience and maybe a
spot of bother.
Sifting through letters and
emails, all of the items illustrated are where walkers have reported straying
off the path. As with all these incidents, the path is there to follow if you
have the map, the guide book and are paying attention, but. . . . . !
may be the most useful sheet of paper you carry on your next walk.
