Most of the research for this blog takes place using the Google Street View tool – a highly satisfactory and enjoyable way of working. Nevertheless, there is undeniably an extra frisson whenever a potential Mr Blogpost appears during our day-to-day travels.
Well, that is exactly what happened this weekend when Mr Tweets and I were out hiking together along the famous Gritstone Trail in Cheshire.
Situated near the summit of Sponds Hill, at 1,345 feet above sea level, this may be the highest sighting so far recorded on this blog. Keen readers will notice it is also our first qualified doctor – a reassuring qualification when one is in the business of supplying chemical toilets for outdoor events (in this case, a rather noisy rally-biking tournament).
As you can imagine, Mr Tweets and I were much heartened by this sighting and continued on our journey with an extra spring in our step. We celebrated with a pint of Robinsons at the end, although Mr Tweets only had a half as he was driving.
Footnote: Some readers may be interested to know whether Mr Tweets or I had call to use the facilities furnished by Dr Loo. We did not. From the outside, they looked clean and well-kept, although the four units were arguably placed unnecessarily close together – an effect heightened by the surrounding expanse of open moorland.
