I am even less sure of my plans than I was last year, though I am going to try to track 250 miles in Viewranger. Just under 7.5 done so far  O0


The first half of the year at least will be dictated mainly by work, it'll be a case of grabbing days out in the Brecon Beacons and other relatively nearby places when I can. My eldest does his GCSEs in the summer  :o  so there might be a chance to take a scrambling break with him at some point in late June/early July. I'd like to try walking in one or two more of the Welsh mountain ranges, maybe get back to the Lake District and try Scafell Pike. Would also love to climb Ben Nevis but am not sure I'll get enough hill walking in this year to be fit enough so maybe that's a 2020 goal.

Planning on walking the Kungsleden Trail, Sweden. Found some good accounts on YouTube. Anyone out there  offering advice into the route, logistics, etc would be gratefully received

Which part of the Kungsleden are you looking at?


All 500km of it or just the northern section?


North to south or south to north?



Are you hutting it or camping?


When are you going?

Due to been given the greenlight from "er in doors", im hoping to complete the pennine way again but even earlier than the last effort(april2016) in mid feb/early march time. It is dependent on finding another job and then "having" a month off.
I did it okay ish last time, so what with knowing what to expect and been able to be better prepared im going to give it a reet good go this time and see how fast i can complete it in, (i have dreams of doing the spine race one year).
"if in doubt, flat out"

With fingers crossed I stay fit and well, Im hoping for visits to the summits of Ben Nevis, Scafell Pike and Blencathra in particular this year.
Im aiming for at least 30 new summits in my Wainwright quest in the Lakes.
I would also like to visit for the first time the Brecon Beacons and the Cotswolds this summer.
Im also going to try and get a meet up or two together hopefully  ;)

Let me know if you get to the Beacons John, be nice to catch up again even if only to say hello  O0
Touching from a distance, further all the time.

I just want to spend 2019 walking as much as possible, I normally walk anywhere I can whether it's in towns or the country, my plan for this year is just to keep walking, 2018 wasn't as good for me as 2017 so I am going to make up for it this year :)

Why not set yourself a walking mileage target on this thread, 666? http://www.walkingforum.co.uk/index.php?topic=37761.0

Thank you I will take a look although I recently stopped counting the miles and tracking my walks because I thought I would just enjoy the walk for what it is but I will definitely consider it, thank you for the link  O0

Just booked a cottage in Reeth for a week in July, and an apartment in Keswick for Christmas week, has been a lifelong ambition to spend Christmas in Keswick  :) O0

I started the Welsh Coast Path towards the end of last year, I doubt I'll finish it this year, but that is my walking for the foreseeable future planned out.
Along with a few trips up the Malverns when I can't get to the coast.
