... He's like a bouncy mountain goat.

Ha ha, I've been called some things in my time but never that  ;D

Glad you had a good day out though, I thoroughly enjoyed it  O0 .. and nicely finished off with a pint in the Wasdale Inn


Look forward to catching up with you on the 17th


Cheers

Cracking day. Legs of lead today! And I think my description is about right.  Thanks for slowing down yesterday.  Great route, chuffed to do the great door route at last.

Hopefully your legs will be 'unleaded' tomorrow  :)


More than welcome and no thanks necessary.  Really enjoyed chatting and walking, made for a superb day out.... I shall take you up on your offer of a walk in Snowdonia at some point

Good workout on Dartmoor today.  Straight up Yes tor from Meldon quary, over West mill and Rough tor to Irishman's wall. Then back down to the wooden bridge at Belstone. Staight up Cosdon beacon and over the top to the Hound tors, then up Steeperton and straight down tuther side to the ford.

The weather had closed in, so  I took advantage of the military tracks and jogged over to Dinger tor.

The last shelter and tea stop was at High Willhays.  I put on everything I had in my bag for the decent back to the car.  Once back bellow Yes tor once more I joined the track and ran the rest of the way down.  Finally warmed up as I arrive back. 18 miles and 4000 ft of accents.  Enjoyed that, dispite to awful weather.  O0

A Northumberland National Park walk starting at Greenhaugh and taking in some local history including the bastles - fortified farmhouses built to defend against the marauding border reivers. So fresh air, great scenery, local history and a promising weather forecast. Around 7 miles.

Really good 8 mile walk in the South Downs today. Started from Singleton, over St Roche's Hill, around Goodwood racecourse, through East Dean, over North Down and Levin Down, and back into Singleton.

Nice bright day, expansive open views of the surrounding downs and some lovely colours. Not too muddy either considering recent rainfall.

Back up on Dartmoor today with the Moorland Ramblers group.  14miles out and around from Dartmeet.  A beautiful warm sunny day. So much warmer than last weekend in the driving rain.  No more moors until Christmas now.  ;)
