Walla crag after work – June 5th 2013

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.Continue reading “Walla crag after work – June 5th 2013”

A very wet Twitteratti walk up Wetherlam

So another twitteratti walk was here and the weather was not looking great. After getting soaked on our Buttermere walk vowed would not go out in bad conditions! But as I’d organised it thought would be bad form not to turn up. Plus had newly purchased waterproof jacket and trousers to put through their paces.

Twitteratti walk up Carrock Fell

So we were having an additional walk this month, I’d heard various people talk about Carrock Fell so this was what we were going to do. Met at the base of the fell and the weather was amazing. As there was only me, Dave, Ray and Gary we decided on a linear walk. Gary and Ray headed off to park the car at Wolfram mine our finish, upon their return it was to attack the steep ascent of Carrock fell.

Completing No9 off my 40 at 40 List – Yorkshire 3 Peaks

Next on the list was Number 9 – The Yorkshire 3 peaks.  I have not really explored Yorkshire, so was really looking forward to doing this.  I understood that it took between 8-12 hours so set the challenge of doing it in 10 hours.  It felt quite a task doing such a long walk (24.1 miles) but felt confident in completing it.

A wet Twitteratti walk up Buttermere

So another Sunday twitter walk and the weather was not looking great, after a few messages it was decided we would still go ahead with the walk and maybe do a lower level walk if weather really bad. Soon this time we had 2 newbies to the group Ceri-lee and Suzanne came to join me, Dave, Bruce and Si.Continue reading “A wet Twitteratti walk up Buttermere”

Striding Edge July 20th 2012

Having a day off when everyone else is at work is twice as nice.  A Friday off but this was really our Jubilee bank holiday as we were working.  Good news is was a much nicer day than the bank holiday!

So a classic walk, not been up Hellvelyn for about 12 years.  It was a nice day but as we set off it did start to spit with rain and my hair got worried for a moment!!Continue reading “Striding Edge July 20th 2012”

Cross Bay walk July 15th 2012

The Cross Bay walk was one of those things I have always fancied doing.  It was for a good cause (Bay search and rescue).  Decided to park at Kents Bank, Grange and get the train round to Arnside to start the walk.  Result on the train, conductor didn’t get to us so didn’t have to pay for the ticket!!Continue reading “Cross Bay walk July 15th 2012”

Great Gable July 8th 2012

So this was our second Twitter walk and we had some new faces joining the gang.  We had the very lovely Tanya aka @heelwalker1, Bruce aka @brucehardy2 and Si aka @SiButterworth.  Luckily I had made enough brownies for the extended gang!!  Tanya and I had our essentials, mascara and lippy, all part of being a Glam walker!!Continue reading “Great Gable July 8th 2012”
