Response 3: A beautiful day out in the country

It seemed like we had been travelling for days, albeit it had been a matter of hours since our dilapidated car finally gave up the ghost, putting faith in mechanical technology that was older than the dead sea scrolls was such a bad idea.

A camping trip in the raw and beautiful wilderness seemed to be the perfect tonic for what had been a stressful and emotional week, how wrong could I be!

As we came to a shuddering stop, reaching for my mobile, no signal, no chance of imminent rescue, walking to find help was the only option.

At first the walk was a pleasant distraction from the predicament of an inordinate amount of time  on the road, before we hit any hamlet passing itself off as a civilised town. 

On the horizon we see a hill, maybe salvation lies ahead, ascending only to be confronted with another hill.
