Todays patrol started a little eariler that usual with some care of the equipment.
Roger was repairing our metal stakes and taking the sharp edges off the "heads" which have developed over time being hit into the ground.
The kit was straighted in the back of the truck to ensure everything was accounted for.
Then it was off and out to check the tracks and access points we often have to use. Due to ground conditions one route up to Ballard is off limits till it dries out.
Then along Studland beach. not many people about due to the weather before returning to Swanage to refuel the truck.
It does not sound much but the 2 hour patrol is all about training, running the truck and checking access routes are open.
