April Updates: Daily Tipple and Chippy Challenge   Leave a comment

CC april progress chart

 

Wednesdays have been Chippy days this past month with two trips to Lewknor early on for long G-Had trails and two mid-day lunch runs.  However, the best plate of fish this month came from the Baker’s Arms pub.

Only six of the DT’s were in pubs but there were multiple new pubs on single days during the month.  May is Mild Month in the alehouses, and I do love a mild so expect to hit a few more this time around.  I also have a lot of days off coming up so there could be a few wildcards thrown in.  Stay tuned.
