I've written a post about my wild-camping trip around the Lake district in the snow that ended a good walking year for me. If you're interested I've included the link of the walk


https://wildwalkinguk.com/2021/01/08/a-high-level-5-day-wild-camping-circuit-of-the-lake-district-in-the-snow/



It is a perfect example of my whole year. It was unplanned and I made the route up as I went. I just packed 5-days food and went, with the general thought that I would like to walk the Bob Graham Round. I managed half of the 42 peaks and loved every minute of the walk.
All my walks were done this way last year and they all worked out really well. So stay flexible and be ready to go whenever you get the chance and it should be a good year. Stay positive and best of luck for 2021.

Whole-heartedly agree with that sentiment, more so now, than ever. 


I will have a read of your adventure after my tea so thank you (in advance) for posting - I've enjoyed reading your other blog posts and I'm sure I'll enjoy reading this too  O0

Wonderful stuff - really enjoyed reading your blog.
I've been impressed with my Lightwave tent too - an overlooked brand, in my opinion.

A brilliant record of a cracking adventure O0
You were so lucky with the weather, you can't beat blue skies and snow.
Shamelessly nicked that route for a summer expedition  ;D [size=78%] [/size]

Reading your report and seeing the photos has brightened  up (considerably) a very damp and dismal morning here in the Yorkshire Dales - I might have another look later  :)

A terrific winter trek and report with fine pics, most energetic  O0

I can just about remember those bitterly cold days when we hardly dared to remove our gloves even briefly. Treks of that vigour, especially in winter conditions, are beyond us now anyway!  :(
