We meet up with the walkers - Formosa Flyer and Doggy Style
Mountain Goat the hare poses by one of his checks
We come across an old metal trunk in the royal grounds -
- but unfortunately no treasure inside.
Mountain Goat's challenging bit
Brambles, thorns and prickly creepers tear at our flesh and clothes
Is this the end of it?
Not quite! Crouching low helps to avoid the worst of it.
We are working our way up to the road.
Finally onto clear ground
Mountain Goat emerges from the bushes
The beer is getting nearer...
