A lesson learned today I think. I am not usually careless going into the hills however I took the liberty of considering my trip to Worcestershire Beacon today a gentle stroll. Mist, rain and a strong wind contributed to the lesson. Having managed to get wet though the wind was fiercer than I realised. No more layers to put on and extremely violent fits of shivering to the extent I dropped radio/Microphone/logbook. Then a bit of a loss of concentration.
Anyway I got back safely but feel a little chastened. With hindsight apart from being ill equipped today, symptoms were probably start of hypothermia. I got down safely and got warmed up but I won’t be taking liberties anywhere again.
Thanks to everybody that worked me.
