So the last walk of 2013, with a favourable forecast headed off to the hills. With hill fitness not at it’s best, we revised our arranged route to do Hartsop Dodd, Little Hart Crag, Red Screes and Middle Dodd.
My name is Gina and it’s been 80 days since I last bagged a Wainwright!
So after nagging Gary for the last few weeks to get his last Wainwright done, we set a date. His last wainwright was Kirk Fell and decided to tag in the Mosedale Horseshoe for good measure.
After our walk on Monday and the promise of good weather, decided to do a mid week walk. After a post walk discussion in the pub, it was decided to do Sale and Ling fell.
Having just flown back from Ibiza was definitely itching to get back into the fells. With more birthday celebrations and a tweet up at the Beer festival in Staveley the previous night, decided on a more leisurely meet time of 11am.
With my first wild camp having quite literally a rain check and Dave having completed the Great North swim, hadn’t planned any walks. So the weather was looking not too bad so decided to tick off Souther Fell. Completed quite alot of the neighbouring wainwrights on our first Twitter walk.
Found ourselves with a free evening after plans changed, as we were still lucky enough to have good weather, thought we could squeeze in another evening walk. Sent a tweet out and despite the lack of brownies, Bruce and Gary joined us for the walk up Walla Crag.
Not that I’m getting obsessed with walking but when there is a promise of such good weather, you have to take advantage. So a walk relatively close to home was Wansfell. I’m afraid to say that we did cheat and walked up from Troutbeck.
So after doing my glider flight and being in the north of the county decided to see which Wainwrights we could do. So we set off to do Great, Little Mell and Gowbarrow Fell as were in close proximity to each other.
So I’m a relative newbie to the Social Hiking fraternity. I had seen via a few of the people I follow on Twitter the familiar tweet of “I’m out and about track me live etc” When I was on my sun lounger in Turkey within the safety of Wifi decided to join Social Hiking.
