Map reading around Edale
« on: 12:24:06, 15/11/18 »
I met up with route2rock yesterday at Edale, for a walk, and instruction on map reading skills. I really enjoyed it, though it was a battle against the wind at times. He was very patient, my legs are not as long as his, so scrambling was a bit slow. I made it, six miles, and felt great.


A few pics from my blog.


















Thanks to route2rock for giving up your day off to show me the rocks. Love the dawg.   O0

Glad you had a good day and have gained some new skills, wouldn't mind doing a navigation course myself.


Great photos, I used to walk the Peak District regularly when I lived in Nottingham and do miss it a lot.
The Dorset coast is beautiful and has some fantastic areas to walk but I really enjoyed the isolation in the hills you can find in the Peak District.

Gorgeous.
You just helped me make up my mind about what to do with a few days next month.  Plus the YHA is on sale and has some availability!

Now is a good time to use Youth Hostels. You might find if you book a bed in a dorm you are the only one there. My friend had a night at Eyam last week, room to himself. Some bargains to be had, and the breakfasts are always good.
