MY WALKING WORLD David Preston

The New Year is rapidly approaching and looking forwards to some good walks during the winter months. Mileage for this year is just over 800 miles according to my Viewranger Log which is probably more accurate than my own log. I tend to round my mileage down whereas Viewranger is exact. Not as many miles as last year but I have been a bit restrained as I have had Plantar Fasciitis in my left foot for over a year and it has held me back a bit, but I have been determined not to be beaten. Thankfully, touch wood it seems to have sorted itself out but its been a long fifteen months.

Looking along Derwentwater towards Walla Crag and Keswick 04/12/17

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

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.
