New to the forums - Hello from Shrewsbury
« on: 15:57:38, 30/03/20 »
Good afternoon all, hoping you are all keeping well in these strange times.


Just introducing myself to the site, I live in Shrewsbury, Shropshire and work in North Wales which is where I do most of my walking.
I spent several years in the military and since leaving have found myself a bit lost for things to do outside of work and spending time with the family! I have recently got back into walking/mountaineering and hopefully (Covid-19 Dependant) will be tackling the national 3 peaks in September.


Look forward to getting to know some fellow walkers on here  O0


Cheers.

Welcome from Devon.  There are a few members with military backgrounds of different hues on the forum.  I spent some time in your area at Cosford and Shawbury not to mention a glancing blow with the ground at Ternhill.  There is a lot of good walking to be had near you, either planning your own or borrowing other people's routes, once this kerfuffle is finished.

Thanks Ninthace,


Yes know the camps well - often get woken up by the RAF helicopters flying over the house now!


Absolutely, I cant wait to get out and put some miles in, especially with the clocks going forward now. Hopefully the lockdown works and we can all get back to normality - whatever that is  8)

So many paths yet to walk, so little time left
