Probably doesn't apply in this case...
I have heard of people setting out on the Pennine Way and getting so distressed on Kinder Scout, or if they survive that, then Bleaklow, and simply ditching their kit and going home!
I guess they were fighting fit at the point I found them... because over the next six weeks they only got 53 miles covered.
As for your tent... if no-one claims it... Mr Sworld's mate on another thread has lost one!
I remember some scorching summer weather in 1985. I followed the Pennine Watershed, rather than the Pennine Way, and of course there isn't really any water up there, just piles of bog. Still... a lot of it was fairly dry... but I do recall some raging thirsts and some sizeable detours to find water.
Meanwhile... bumpity bump... in case anyone's looking for a tent!
For a few years I have supported a few charity "walks" by providing first aid cover and the like.
I usually come home with more than I went away with - mainly T shirts and socks, but I have been given waterproofs, boots, stoves, more gas than you would use in a lifetime, CCF mats...list goes on. Much is just left at the start finish - thrown down never to be missed.
Most goes to a local DoE group that is always short of bits
