Photography / Re: Photobucket photos seem to have returned?
« Last post by bricam2096 on Today at 15:38:09 »
Call me tight but when Photobucket started getting greedy, I started to post any photos on here using my own hosting and I won't be paying PB for the "pleasure". Flickr seems to still be free...for now

General Walking Discussion / Re: Ditching the Car

A car is a secure (fingers crossed) storage place for lots of other things while you're doing your walk.
When I return from my multiple-day walks - which are usually circular, but there's no reason why I don't catch a bus or train somewhere and walk back - I have clean clothing, big tent and full camping equipment waiting for me, hidden out of sight under a cover, so I can drive to a decent campsite and live in luxury compared to continuing to sleep in a dog kennel-sized backpacking tent.
That would not be possible if I went away by public transport.

I regularly do long distance walks via public transport. When doing linear walks of a couple of hundred miles there is little option. Every year for some time I have done a 2 week Scottish walk using public transport at the start and finish, same for my trips in Wales and many other parts of the UK. I like it, it gives me plenty of options and I don't have to bother about getting back to the car.

Glad to report that most of my gear has now ended up in the arms of friends in Cardiff.
I quite agree, collecting so much kit over the years, and never using it, was a bit pointless, far better letting others benefit from my folly.

:) Yes, the lightest weight is not always best.

22 grams, crikey, you will have the ultra lightweight police on here telling you off  ;)

We have boiled eggs for our breakfast when we are out camping. I wonder if beefy can come up with something for us to make toast.

News and Articles / Re: BBC4 - Iolo's Snowdonia
« Last post by Dyffryn Ardudwy on Today at 13:45:49 »
The final episode is the most interesting and thought provoking.
One of my favourite locations for peace and quiet, are the Northern Carneddau.
Iolo traverses them in the full depths of Winter, sheltering in the Foel Grach shelter to eat his sandwiches.

He also takes a shine to the Rhinogs, and one of his walks almost passes my front door.

Ive met him twice, once whilst helping with the organisation of the 2014 Lake Vyrnwy half marathon, and the other was at the International Snowdon race in Llanberis some years ago.

One of the nicest people you would want to meet, very down to earth, and a real gent.

A real credit to Wales.

Bus passes - just one example of our Dis-united Kingdom.
Eligibility by age varies betweenn England, Wales and Scotland and you can only use them in the country they are issued in :(
