nijmegan four days march

the Vierdaagse, a four day, 40k a day (50 for men) march through the eastern Dutch countryside, is something that my friend Kelly had been on at me to do with her for years. Trust me to choose the one time since the sedcond world war that it got cancelled. I did the first day, got back, and found out that three people died of heat exhaustion. Nightmare!
Doubly a nightmare since Kelly and I have very different standards when it comes to travel. Kelly is totally content to sit in a tent all day, gets panicky if you suggest she goes out unless she has planned the route, pretty much to the exacty place we will get gas, and cares what she looks like. I don't care what I look like, like getting lost, and turn into a fractious toddler if I have to sit still for more than ten minutes.
