Duvet day the Akto way

Private Road
Stomach fires raged all day and when i went to move, it was a struggle against my stomach muscles and aching head. I dozed, listened to radio, working up motivation and failing. Repeat cycle for just short of 12hrs. Broke camp as midges swarmed - so much for vitamin b and arnywear though it does seen to work on contact. Struggled back to car, listening to radio to keep my mind off things. Got to Killin, with it's Co-op that doesn't shut until 10pm and dosed up on antacid and milkbased food. I'm off to tomorrow's meeting place to sleep in car in case i'm fit enough to hike.
Heading out

Nothing as bad as yours, Darren. It's why I carry isotonic drinks now.

As it is now 48hrs later, and I am feeling less ill, I reckon it was just a bug, John. Drinking plenty of fluids, and had a healthy pint of chilled Murphy's stout last night.
