Good timing OP.  Was thinking about such a post this morning. :)


[/size]My main goal for 2017 is to get Dyffryn Ardudwy on a Walking Forum meet.


 :2funny: :2funny:



My main aim is to still be here for 2018 O0 O0


100% Confidence in you there O0






Got to carry over my 2 outstanding goals from 2016


Wild Camping
Snowdon Horseshoe (Reverse)


And new for 2017


Aonach Eagach in Winter Conditions (this Winter)
Striding/Swirral Edge in Winter Conditions (this Winter)
Tryfan/Bristley Ridge in Winter Conditions (this Winter)
Add another 30 or so Wainwrights to my tally (currently 98)
Do some overseas walks again (Tenerife Booked for Jan/thinking of going to Crete in May)
Do the Yorkshire 3 Peaks
Sunset/Sunrise Walk (Snowdon in June/July)




Probably lots more but that's what immediately springs to mind.

If they don't like you going out, they'll love you coming in!

Having finally climbed Snowdon this year, I'd like to get up Devil's Kitchen in 2017. I went part way up it on the same school trip as we didn't climb Snowdon on because of the poor weather conditions. Will hopefully have my eldest with me after he got the scrambling bug on the Nantlle Ridge.

Would also like to complete the Brecon Beacons National Park Hewitts and Nuttalls. It should only take 3 more walks but I want to include my youngest (he's done all the Hewitts but not the Nuttalls so far) and he is getting more resistant to hill walking. Too slow for him. Someone has sneakily promoted another peak to a Nuttall in the last couple of months but fortunately we can nab it on the Beacons Horseshoe from the Neuadd reservoir, which I'm planning to be our completion walk.

I'm carrying on with my County Bagging Project.  Unfortunately, I've "bagged" all the Counties surrounding me now which are do-able in a day there and back walk so that means I'll just have to have more holidays to get to the ones further afield.... shame that  :D
No expense spared in pursuit of a bargain ;)

Pembrokeshire Coast Path continue/finish?
The Ridgeway?
Hutting in the Polish Tatras (booked)
Most walks start by finding the way out of the car park

All booked ready for C2C in May. Done my first ldw this year, Pennine Way at the age of 65, I didn't find it quite as hard as I was expecting so here goes again. Really looking forward to it.
 I'll take this opportunity to wish all forum members a Happy and healthy New Year
I never get lost, just don't always know where I am!

Nothing at all as its impossible to get away at the moment.I might take on the 1000 mile challenge and try and make the distance doing local walks.Mileage in the past year was pathetic,lowest its been for 25 years as there was no real incentive to get out there and do something.

Two possibles on the list, though no pressure to achieve them in 2017.   

Complete the Kennet on Avon Canal with MrsG.  We still have Devises to Reading to walk and I have shelled out much pennies on the OS map, so would be nice to finish that off this year.

Plus walk the Snowdon Horseshoe with my son.

I've got a bucket list for 2017. Eight walks in Wales and a similar number in the Peak District as well as a week in the Mourne Mountains.


Having reached the 'veteran' stage I'm determined to complete the list but also to have fun as I go. More importantly, it's time to give up the bl**dy cigarettes starting at midnight. That should give me an extra 2k a year to spend on travel and walking.


If it all works I could find myself walking in areas I've never visited before.

Best of luck, as not only will you have more cash but better health prospects also  O0

One for he following, maybe two if other commitments permit:

Thames Path
Macmillan Way
Wessex Ridgeway
Heart of England way
Pennine Bridleway
Monarch's Way Book 1
Plus a number of short (30m) local paths

All as through walks backpacking, but those over 200m may be split in two as my partner does not like me being away for more than 2 weeks at a time.

As I'll be 67 when I start any of them, it's beginning to look like a bucket list

After a bit of a quieter year in some ways, I'd like to think 2017 might offer up a bit more opportunity. Subject to dates being confirmed, in the pipeline are Austria, Norfolk Coast Path (again), more of the Camino in France and possibly Armenia or Georgia.


That's if everything comes together!  :D [size=78%] [/size]

Of the 526 hills above 500m in the Southern Uplands I now have only 8 remaining to visit; first priority for 2017 is to finish this long-standing target, then to mop up the remaining lower Marilyns in the same area.
