This nightmare end-of-world situation was apparently going to right itself when said black hole evaporates in a few days. We were left with a sense of dread, but with the feeling that if we just maintained a stiff upper lip, and kept on high ground, we'd make it out of the other side.

The joy of tents

The boys get their first taste of camping in a tent. We stayed at Green Acres near Edale. We had a fantastic time, although I had to tell the boys to stop being noisy about 11 hundred times.
