When I entered I hadn't asked my parents to support as I felt after the WHWR one long day and night out was enough in one year for them. But they willingly volunteered and I was very grateful for this. They headed up to Aviemore on Friday to set up the 'Knoxy' base camp at the Hayfield for the event. I drove up on Saturday morning. I went for coffee and supplies in Aviemore and met Lorna and John coming out of Tesco looking a little worse for wear. It seems there had been a little bit of drinking on the Friday night at tent city.
I arrived at the Hayfield for 9.30am, which was full of every size of tent you can imagine and various campervans parked around the site.

Thanks to my parents again for being on hand to feed and water me and for being the voice of reason when the wheels were coming off, and for taking photos as I was too busy running or sleeping!!
All that excitement was a little too much for my dad!!
