Trial by ordeal.

The Rucksack Club Kinder Trial 2014
It started out like this...
The 2014 Kinder Trial was unfinished businesses for Ray and I.  In 2012 we had a DNF, due to a punch card error and we didn't even make the start of the 2013 KT, due being snowed in.

The KT format is simple. At the start you are given a map, pre-marked with 16 controls(check points). All controls must be visited but in any order. 
The course planner had planned cunningly, with no obvious route choices. Which made it all the more fun.

No snow this year

............And ended like this

Many thanks to RO Andy Howie an his team for a cracking day out.
A top event with soup and cake at the finish.

Oh! we managed to finish this year too.
