So after my restless night under attack from the local vermin I set out on the road. Just before I hit the road I got speaking to some ladies who were walking their dogs. Both very friendly and offering to help.
Focused on getting going I hit the road. The first shop was 10 miles away and my breakfast of peaches and Vienna sausages was hardly going to sustain me – food was very prominent on my mind.
At about 8 miles two of the cyclists who had been staying the camp ground with me came up behind. They asked if I had seen the package on the side of the road addressed to “The Scottish running guy.” I replied that I had not seen said package and they told me that they thought I had seen it and decided I didn’t need it. I am still trying to work out why I would decide to leave generously donated food on the side of the road!
Anyway… I would like to thank whoever it was (I am presuming it was one of the ladies from the morning) for taking the time to put together a little care package for me. It was the very first of its kind on this trip (that I know about) and I am sure that it would have filled my stomach and lifted my spirits. If anyone else wants to leave one on the road for me I promise to look harder!!
