Then finally we do hear from Hannah and co. as the they settle in to another night in the back of their van, in another Welsh layby. Just don’t flash those lights.

    I very much hope Hannah isn’t camping (illegally) in a layby. I live in a tourist area of Wales and it’s not fun at the moment, it’s just so busy. Scores of campervans have been removed from layby’s and picnic areas by the police for illegally camping, so we don’t need publications like this adding to the problem by promoting it. Stay in a campsite. If all the campsites are full, that should tell you something – tourist areas (and locals to those areas) are struggling with the numbers of visitors.

    Worry not. She wasn’t in a layby. That was literary licence 🙂

    So the podcasts have gone Marvel style now, have they? Or were they like that all along? Am I going to have to listen to the ends of them all to see what extra snippets I’ve missed?

    That was almost complete chaos and one of the best podcasts for a while but what was Mark’s climbing music? I’m pretty sure he avoided answering that one.

    There was meant to be a smiley after “while” but it disappeared.
