Quite a few "notes to self" from today's little nadventure.
You can never be too high when crossing gaps.
Assumption is the mother of all f*** ups especially where lift is concerned.
I am not a hike n fly pilot or even a fly n hike pilot.
The road from Craswall to Longtown has 3 cars an hour none of whom will pick you up, they just peer at you like it's Deliverance country.
Mates who will retrieve you are worth their weight in gold.
