I had big ambitions for a 6 mile trail loop. I forgot that many of our rural foothpaths are not maintained and some even lost to the undergrowth.
I still ended up doing 6+ miles but mainly circling around looking for missing paths and fighting my way through brambles and nettles, some chest height. There comes a point when you've been stung you may as well carry on but my poor legs ended up with nettle stings on my bramble cuts on further stings!! I'll find a clearer route next time. Meanwhile my skin is still jumping. 🤣
