With the water my feet started to puff up and rub around the toes and heel of the now too small boots. I spent most of the day with excruciating pain in my feet and in a very bad mood. Having left the free camping at Hebden Bridge at 8.30am and travelling up on the moors I didn't manage to find anywhere to eat my lunch out of the rain and so didn't stop for a break until I hit Cowling at about 2pm. Despite the feet and my miserable mood I'd put In a good distance. After a refuel of tea and a burger in a cafe in Cowling and wringing out my socks I was back on the road headed for nearby Earby and dry bed at the Youth hostel there. Happily the hostel turned out to be one of the most homely I've stayed at and I now have my feet resting on thick carpet, my bum on a comfy sofa, the gas fire on and a glass of red wine in my hand courtesy of John, one of the other guests. Alls well that ends well! ## Daily stats: Start - Hebden Bridge Finish - Earby Mileage - 21 miles/34km Feeling - Glad of some home comforts and a friendly traveller Sleeping - Earsby Youth Hostel >This trek took place in 2010 before the wonderfulness of STEEM existed. I was trekking in aid of Naomi House Children's Hospice in Hampshire, England, and writing and posting the blog from my iPhone 3gs (so if you're wondering why the photo's aren't that good...) if you want to see the original blog it is [here](http://malcolmslejog.blogspot.com.au/) but I rather hope you choose to follow me instead. Thanks Steemians!
