090, Overnight Bivvi with David Foster on Ivinghoe Beacon, 4-1-03


4-5 January 2003, Dave Foster. Overnight walk/bivvi. Very cold, -5°C! Met Dave at Tring Station @ 10pm,
walked to Albury for a pint at the Greyhound. Met disbelieving girls. Continued up to The Bridgewater Monument.
As we were reading the inscription in the pitch black by torchlight, 2 people drove up, got out with their own
torches and squelched through the mud towards us ... got "checked out" by a PC & WPC (hey! hey!). Walked
by the light of the moon up to Ivinghoe Beacon, bivvied out. Fell asleep beneath a clear sky, Orion magnificent
above. Awoke to a gorgeous sunrise, frost covering everything and still -5°C. A hot brew, then an early start.
Returned to Tring via Ivinghoe, back of Pitstone, Grand Union Canal. Stopped for Christmas cake & Port at the
Swing-bridge. Had pot of tea at the Tring Reservoirs café, before final leg back to the cars. Pint and a sandwich
at the Greyhound, & met one of the disbelieving girls!
