« on: 19:29:24, 11/02/21 »
Hello all
Thanks for having me..born in Scotland .. lived in London most my life though and spent most my time escaping to the countryside done a fair bit of walking and wild camping prefer long distance walks like the challenge the harder the better for me.

Welcome from south Manchester  :)

Epic challenging backpacks are behind us now I'm afraid, still much to enjoy on shorter/easier trips.

Hiya
Iím getting to that age approaching 53 would like to do more day walking but since getting rid of the car 10 year ago and riding motorbike (easier to get about on these days through traffic)
I just canít walk in all that gear carting helmet and stuff about so itís either long distance walk or motorbike trip

Greetings from Northumberland. Lots of my early hill walks started with a motorbike to the bottom, I then removed the helmet and walked up (fell boots, jeans and a waxed cotton jacket). Actually that still happens when I go to the Isle of Man!  O0

Welcome to the forum from the southern edge of the Lake District.  :)


Never really been into true long distance walks, but really getting into one night wild camps up on the fells, as well as plenty of day walks. Just waiting for Lockdown to end.....

Hi Clusterhead  :)


Up in Northumberland discovered how useful trains & buses are when doing day walks, rather than walking out and back to car. Not sure what transport links you have down there ;D
