Good evening everyone,

Saturday was a long hard day covering some of the steeper ground with Peter Finn, it was also the anniversary my injury, 25 years since it happened. I didn't finish renaming images until gone 2230 hours, by then I was shattered and the Wi-Fi on the campsite that I was staying at died a death, still wasn't working last night either.

Yesterday morning I pottered out to cover some of the bits and pieces I had missed last was here, mainly because churches were locked. I also had to go find Battle of Sedgemoor Memorial that was in the middle of nowhere, good bit of off roading for the Tramper. It was also Smudge's 13th birthday, happy birthday Smudge.

I haven't run with the camera on the scooter for a long time, I started again this morning as some of the driving recently has been frightening, certain police forces are now the last few weeks pushing a campaign where if you pass within one and one half metres a cyclist and the cyclist has video evidence then they will prosecute you that should apply to me as well, I mean drivers must pass me and give me one and a half metres space. This morning's run was only 12 miles from Langport to Ilminster and I had free instances of drivers passing me very close and at one stage very fast at same time! Not all drivers are bad it's just a minority as usual that cause problems for everybody else. I have put a video compilation together and it should be available below.
