A weekend without 'Hurry up and wait!'

With the nights starting to draw in and weather being a bit variable I was keen not to over commit for my October Microadventure.
The Brecon Beacons has been my destination of choice this year and I found a couple of good day walks in TGO magazine close to Crickhowell.
This worked for my mate Steve who was keen to join me but not so keen on yomping miles in the rain!  As he rightly highlighted 'weve spent too many days hurrying up, waiting and being uncomfortable'.
So, we set our sights deliberately low and planned for comfort, sensible walking and the option of being able to get out of the rain.
Of course, the weather turned out to be great but a more relaxed approach made for a great, laid back weekend.

Full moon and a fire - enough said!
