The day started with a visit to Ysbyty Gwynedd for a scan (a long story) and then the remainder of the day revolved around chasing up last minute kit and sorting out general niff naff.
Pete Baars (Summit to Sea) once again came up trumps with the kit - it was getting close to the wire with a few bits and pieces but it all seems to be coming together at last. Cheers Pete.
Also a mention to Leah from Lendal Paddles and Nigel Dennis for sorting out a nice shiny set of Lendal Kinetic Touring blades for me at very short notice. I'll try and give you a bit more warning next time folks!
