Almost September and its been a good walking year up to now, a few backpacking trips have been completed and 16 nights in my tent, still plenty of time for more

Looking towards Cadair Idris from Mynydd Moel 04/08/18

To celebrate Britain’s first and arguably most beautiful national park, The Friends of the Peak District have devised a brand new long distance (190-mile) walking route around its entire boundary. The walk is divided up into 20 stages which are easily completed in a normal day. You can follow my progress along the route HERE

  The little bus on my walks list means I have used public  transport on my walk. Especially useful now I have a Bus and Senior Rail Pass and the little tent indicates a night in my tent I love camping especially wild camping - 16 tent nights this year.

I am a keen follower of Twitter, a great way to keep up with what's happening in the outdoor world. I am not interested in what Pop stars, Film stars, Footballers and Politicians have got to say. I follow real people and organisations such as Mountain Rescue Teams, Park Rangers, Outdoor Groups, Hill Farmers, Mountaineers, Wildlife Groups, Police and other local groups.
