Apart from trail type bikes tearing up footpaths when they have no right to be there, not a lot bothers me when Iím out walking, although I do dislike ignorant people.
Touching from a distance, further all the time.

With you there Phil.  I walk to get away from things that annoy me and just relax :)
Where there's a will ...

Having to read the b....y map!
ROW diversions!
Bridges that are no longer there!
Vandalised signposts!
People who take up the whole path when trying to get past!
Having to constantly put over-thousers on and off on an intermittent wet but warm and humid day!
Having to put reading glasses on to read the map!
Trying to find a flat spot to wild camp whist on lumpy terrain!
Wow that's quite a lot more than I thought, better stop now, but...................

Dog poo bags and litter.
No expense spared in pursuit of a bargain ;)

When I'm huffing and puffing my way up a hill at a snails pace and someone effortlessly glides past me without any sign of breaking a sweat! Just kidding! I'm only jealous! ;)


My real annoyance is when arriving at a parking area to find I can't park there because someone has parked in such a daft way that they have taken up the space of two cars!

 Other people who have got the audacity of using the trail at the same time as myself.

 The fact that I am having to waste time walking when I could be at work.

 Idle rights of way officers who have failed to cut down the vegetation to make my passage easier.

 Rain that is too wet.

 Sunshine that is too hot.

 Sheep that bleat at night when I am trying to sleep.

 Porous waterproofs that let the rain in and also keep perspiration in.I thought they were supposed to work the other way round?

  Other than that it is perfectly okay....... ;)

Also- glasses steaming up when wearing a buff in cold weather. Very annoying! ;D

Four things annoy me intensely.
Disgarded litter, especially flytipping in the beautiful countryside of ours

Mountain bikes and 4x4 vehicles tearing up rights of way, until the pathway's are in an almost unrepairable condition.

There was an article recently in the Western Mail about a recognised right of way, at Cwm Maethog near Aberdyfi, that is being torn to shreds by 4x4s, claiming their right of way to drive up the hillside, even if it means destroying the landscape.

The damage is so severe , that the council may not be able to afford to repair the damage.

The same situation is happening near me, on the Harlech Coaching road to London and made famous by the Welsh Drovers.

The erosion is so severe approaching Pont Scethin and the nearby hillside, that during heavy rain, the channels are being eroded so badly, that its causing lasting damage to the beauty of Snowdonia.

The final thing that gets me annoyed, is the unprepared walkers getting stuck on mountains, and calling out the MRteams when it could all have been avoided, if they had gone fully prepared.

  Rain that is too wet.

 Sunshine that is too hot.
 

As a rule, a man's a fool
When it's hot he wants it cool
When it's cool he wants it hot
Always wanting what it's not

Some truth there, anyway...

Selfish summiteers (on the rare occasons when we encounter anyone), sitting eating butties totally encircling the trig point. On more than one occasion we (more accurately I) have said 'excuse me' and stepped through them. Usually typical r**bler types.

Have you tried turning them inside out or .......................perhaps they are already
Most walks start by finding the way out of the car park
