With apologies to Carshare for invading his blog, it only seems fair that the whole club (and not just the Facebook cognoscenti) should get to comment on this one.
We are deeply indebted to both Adi Davis and Jim Fulton for providing the tracks that allow us to pose the questions:
1. which track is Ashley's?
2. is this finally the proof we needed that great fell running minds (Jim and Ashley's) think entirely alike?
3. if 2. is conceded, then how can genetics account for the occasionally inspired variations upon variations upon a route which these two magnificent tracks reveal?
No cheating now; only answers backed up with a plausible explanation can be accepted - so don't just refer to the tracks on the website for your answer. A pint for the best set of answers, in the Carshare comments section below (comments on Facebook also welcome, though these will not qualify for beer).
