April Fools Day and we’re seen off on Bournemouth Sea front by hundreds of well wishes, shame none of them were down there to watch the Fitness First half marathon.
Passed up through Gardens, cut across to Castlemaine Trailway which we took to Ringwood. Bought meths for Trangia stove and the lonely nights ahead. After sharing lunch with the ponies at Redshoot we met wind head on across the New Forest to Stoney Cross, then up to Timsbury Manor, just above Romsey.
Campsite is a field on the Manor grounds just past a fishing lake, and RAF fighter Jet. Basic with just one toilet, you can only sit on one at a time, and no shower, but only dirty people wash, cost £5.
