....before we push on to Sutton Bridge. Hopefully the Cross Keys Bridge will be still in tact, otherwise we'll have to build a pontoon over the Nene.
Then it's on, into deepest, darkest Narfuk . Over the Ouse at Kings Lynn and then there's really no turning back.
We should reach base camp at Dunston by Tuesday night. Wednesday will see us push onto the showground at Norwich where some sheep judging will take place (I fully expect to find most of the feckers guilty )
So, how many of you Narfukian contributors will be going? I could be tied up with sheep for quite a while (have to judge Lincolns and then Any Other Longwools) - should be done by dinner time??
It would be nice to put some names to faces and maybe have a beer.
