I think the Friends document is well argued and I support all their concerns.  I will respond tomorrow , promise  O0

The worry with this Local Plan is that it hasn't been very well advertised by the LDNP. Locals don't even know about it, never mind anyone else, I wonder if the people who live in Thornthwaite are aware of the possibility of cable cars ascending and descending near their houses? I have read most of the plans in these 'showcase areas' with horror. The LDNP does seem to have forgotten why The Lake District became a National Park and what their role is .

walking gives me space away from everything else on my own with no one relying on me, no time to keep to, no one keeping score, just me, my boots and a trail

Gear / Re: My new tent... MSR Hubba
« Last post by gunwharfman on Today at 13:32:54 »
I think that your MSR may be similar to my Marmot Pulsar1 in how its erected? I bought a footprint for mine, extremley useful when having to erect the tent in rain, it easily allows me to fit the outer first, then the inner after. Nothing worse than a wet inner tent! Again like yours my footprint is a bit thin.

If I had thought it out properly at the time, I should have stuck with my ordinary ground sheet, hardier and hardly any heavier. I should have organised a couple of measured bits of looped strings to tension the poles which would have achieved the same effect and the strings would take up less space and weigh less. Only a fraction though.

Thanks, BWW.  O0
Your welcome. I fear those, who claim to be our champions, fail to read the signs. By being blind to them understanding and learning cannot be advanced.

Lovely remote country. I've not often approached the Carneddau from the west.

One benifit for me is I can rant and rave out loud, I can shout at the sky, I can talk to sheep who say "baaaa" to everything I say, I can curse cows for standing in my way and I can even solve all sorts of problems. Sometimes talking to yourself out loud can be a wonderful experience.

Wales / TR - The Western Carneddau

Morning all,


I've now added a blog post about my second day in Snowdonia last bank holiday weekend. It was a solo walk this time, exploring some of the less-frequented, western hills in the Carneddau range. Due to the weather (strong winds and low cloud in the middle of the day) it didn't quite pan out how I'd planned but it was still a good day's walking across countryside that was for the most part completely new to me.


Some pictures below:
