MY WALKING WORLD David Preston

Its the middle of November already and I've had some great walks since I last updated the page. A wild camp on the Roaches turned out to be quite a challenge, very wet and windy but quite enjoyable, I am getting to enjoy this wild camping, Keeping an eye on the weather now as I fancy one over in  the Mam Tor and Lose Hill area, I don't mind the cold, its just the rain I'm not keen on. Nevertheless its pot luck in Britain with the weather. Next May a group of us are planning a six day walk in the Cairngorms which should be good and I am really looking forward to it. Later in the year I am pondering whether I could tackle part of the Kings Trail in Artic Sweden. Its a 70 mile section that is used for the Fjallraven Classic and I would like to walk it on my own. Very remote but I am sure I could manage it. As I said its only an idea at the moment but its definitely in my thoughts.

Ready to set off from Scales, heading for Clough Head and Great Dodd in the background 05/11/16

Click on the image on the left for photos of my trip across the Knoydart in May of 2014. A wonderful trip and I am looking forward to another in a remote area next year. Probably be in Scotland but you never know, the maps are out

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.
