Coast to Coast 2011: Day Five Supplemental

Some readers (Dave) may be pleased to hear that I had a pleasant afternoon in Reeth, it’s still not my fave place, but I has an excellent ice cream, got a good phone signal and had a lovely chat with the wife while sitting in the sun in the village green.

I’m hesitant to post this update – I know I have something of a reputation for being a moaning git and I don’t really want to re-enforce this, but I want to say it as I see it, so here goes…

I seem to be cursed with noisy rooms though – I had an awful night in the Buck – the toilet in my en-suite seemed to have some sort of pump or shredder attached to it and every 15 minutes it would rattle to life and make a loud humming and shoot a jet of water down the U-bend. This wasn’t quite as bad as the church bells at Os, but it was still very annoying and it woke me up several times in the night.

What next? I know the Keld Lodge should be ok, but I’m beginning to wonder who I’ve upset?!

    I was going to adjust the macerator with my boot (admittedly I didn’t know that’s what it was) and I use the term “adjust” in a loose way

    There you go then all you had to do was adjust the macerator for a good nights sleep

    Sounds like a badly adjusted macerator on a small bore sewage pipe. (Did you really want so much detail??)
