nb Ten Bob Note

Date: Tuesday 6th July 2010

Location: Adderley, Shropshire

Miles today: 6 -- Locks today: 20 -- Total miles: 3042  -- Total Locks: 1964

Set off up through the first two locks of the Audlem flight then stopped at the water point to fill up.

After filling with water we moved up through the third lock in the flight only to find a queue of around four boats also heading up the flight. As we didn’t fancy having to queue at the next 17 locks, we decided to moor up for a while to see if the traffic slowed down. Around 13:00, the flow of boats coming up through the locks dwindled so we pulled the pins and headed up through the flight ourselves.

It was nice to meet John and Gill off nb The Cat’s Whiskers today, we have exchanged emails in the past and it was nice to put faces to the names.

We moored up between Adderley and Market Drayton and find that we have almost zero T-Mobile and Orange mobile phone reception here. It’s not often that we don’t get some level of reception. We have one bar of GPRS reception on the T-mobile dongle so may be able to get the site updated tonight ??
