A small pack managed to make it to the campsite in SLDB on a lovely warm dry sunny morning with little or no hangovers evident from the previous night's dining at local expat Leslie's gaff.
The JMs started the proceedings but couldn't remember the run number, so they mumbled something and handed over to the hares who didn't bother with the usual lies since the ground was bone dry and there was no way to go but steeply up.
Following a short walk up into the village the pack found the trail west and on-up into the welcoming shade of the trees.
After a few easy checks on the slope up through le Champ des Pas a five way check
at the top of the climb kept the leaders busy long enough for the pack to regroup
before the trail out towards Anc. ardoisière which went through a small group of
ravers who were still too drunk to have a hangover.
Now a dilemma, the trail split, one path for the "Turkeys" heading gently up out of the
valley and one for the "Eagles" heading down further into the valley.
The rest of the trail consisted of a series of easy checks that took the pack along the edge
of the animal park with magnificent views of the Sarthe and SLDB to the right and unusual goats
and llamas to the left.
Soon we reached the on-in after one hour and twenty minutes.
