Hi Ted,

I should think the best place to get supply's, if your getting there after 6 depending on which way you are coming, there is a petrol station/minimarket in ingleton on the A65, or if your coming from the west on the A65 about a mile before you reach kirby lonsdale there is another petrol station/minimarket on the right.

If you in the area before 6 there are plenty of shops in kirby lonsdale or in dent.

See you saturday,

Dazzer

Ted, I got a bottle of Jack, some steaks and a couple of disposable barbies. Nowhere to put the tent or any other gear though. Is any one bringing a spade to dig a latrine, think my missus is wary about pooing in the bushes!!!
see you in a few hours.......
Vroom Vroom.
BTW does any one know where the hard knot and wry nose passes are?

From the campsite go back to Kirkby and follow the signs for Windermere. Then a little further to Ambleside and the Wrynose starts near there. If you want a good run along them get up early. It's a sunny weekend in the lakes, it'll be packed with Honda civics driven by people who remember rationing!
