@honora Guess I have an imaginary friend. Spirit of LD, maybe? Certainly lighter on dog-biscuits, and I get far more sleeping bag to myself that way.
More accurately you'll have to assume it's you, the reader. A device to force myself to write in a style which brings you along on the journey, rather than telling you 'what I did at the weekend'. Try writing in the 1st person singular but just hate the result.
Think I just dislike stories that read I,I,I and the people who tell them - find them jarring.
Normally not an issue, as LD really is there. But not this time.

Just back from a long winter working in the Canadian Arctic. While it was an exotic and interesting adventure, I missed my home a lot. NZ Tramper has really filled big gap during long hard days.
Re-read your trip just now with the topomap open, tracking the route in detail. Love the way you stitch together these lovely routes. Inspiring and evocative mate. Thanks.
