Hello! Funniest hiking/walking moment?
« on: 14:31:59, 22/05/20 »
Hi all!


I finally decided to join the forum and am looking forward to discussing/planing new walks and getting to know everyone!  My name is Sophie and I am 29 and live near the Peak District.  I have been a keen walker for a number of years and love getting out to explore.  Due to the unprecedented situation we have all found ourselves in, I thought that it would be a good idea for everyone to share their funniest/most embarrassing moments whilst out walking as a good way to get to know each other and give everyone's spirits a much needed lift.


My most embarrassing moment happened back in February, I am part of a local walking group and 10 of us had decided to go out on a Sunday walk and off to a nice pub for a meal afterwards.  I had made a New Year's resolution to start dieting and had managed to lose abit of weight, unfortunately this meant that my jeans had become slightly more loose.  Whilst walking up a hill my jeans unfortunately fell down in a second and I ended up flashing my knickers to my good friend Alan, a retired teacher, who was walking up behind me. Needless to say we all burst out laughing and are luckily we all could see the funny side!  I decided to lose for an action shot an it is now on our private Facebook walking group lol!

I have since given up the diet! Looking forward to hearing from you all!


With best wishes,


Sophie xx

This could possibly be the greatest forum introduction ever.

Mine was trying to erect my tent after I got drunk. I think other campers were very amused. And there was that time in Coniston where, in almost pitch-black darkness, I lost my tent! I wandered around and around looking for it for ages (my torch was in the tent) before I realised that it was on THAT side of the wall, not THIS side! I mustn't forget the time when hiking the Pennine Journey when trying to get away from some cattle, I had to cross a dribbly stream and fell into a load of foul, smelly, slimy cow muck!!! Definitely not one of my better moments!

Walking in jeans with no rucksack and carrying a gun I don't think is a good look.

I would be more worried about the gun being out than the bum.

I didn't see any photos when I commented.

I always worry about people with guns!

I did and I posted after you. It was, erm.... hard to miss. Though I only noticed the gun when G&P commented on it.

With the original pic edited off, I went back to edit my post in case I was accused of being sexist or some sort of other ist.  :-\

You were clearly being a gentleman and averting your eyes from the centre of the picture.

I wonder if the Forum is being had. Just reading the posts I get an understanding of a gun toting female briefly baring her posterior to a walking forum. I have no feeling against the use of sporting firearms, in fact I have probably slaughtered more wild life in a gun toting youth than most of the prancing ninnies and posturing city gunnies that seem to invade the countryside today.

Just a suspicion as the poster's contribution is set on one, is this a genuine intro.
