The Road goes ever on and on; Down from the door where it began;
Now far ahead the Road has gone; And I must follow, if I can;
Pursuing it with eager feet; Until it joins some larger way;
Where many paths and errands met; And whither then? I cannot say.

[JRR Tolkien, Lord of the Rings]

The lack of tea bags

"Have you got any tea bags with you?" I said to Husband

"No" he said. Pause. "Have you?"

And so we realised that despite each having the best part of 11kg on our backs, and all of the hardware required to make a cup of tea, we have no tea bags.

We're now sitting by one of the Cregennan lakes tucking into flapjacks. We have any choice of a selection of dehydrated meals with us, but it's a cup of tea that would really go down nicely right now.
