MY WALKING WORLD David Preston

Well into February and 22 walks up to now, some only short but you have to fit in what you can. Hoping to get a few nights in my tent shortly. Just bought a new Alpkit sleeping mat, the Cloudbase and looking forward to giving it a try. Two of us are off up to Fisherfield at the beginning of May for a backpacking trip of about 65 miles. Its an area we have not visited before so really looking forward to it. More details shortly

Looking down towards Dovestones Reservoir on the Peak Boundary Walk 07/02/18

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

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.
