Bog blog!

We are surveying blanket bog in the North Pennines for our Sphagnum research project, which involves serious walking more than anything else. John has been out alone, which is dodgy even with all the kit, and I am paranoid about disappearing in a bog, having had a scare in some fen carr last month (in up to the top of my left thigh, which is quite a long way, as I am just under 5'8''!!). We keep meaning to do a mountain navigation course; I did moutain leader training years ago (when young, fit and dynamic) but never took it further, once I started working in the City as a lawyer. I don't know how I survived for so long indoors!!!
