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.
So another twitteratti walk was upon us and I had decided on the Coledale Horseshoe route. A few new faces this time, Steve, Jim’s wife Cindy and friend Mick, plus Paul and Karen. The weather for a change was absolutely amazing as you can see from the pics.
So with the impending visit of the in-laws managed to squeeze in a quick walk up Loughrigg. It’s been a while since been up Loughrigg and it’s another Wainwright bagged! (Not that I’m going to get obsessed with them and tell me off if I do).
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.
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 andContinue reading “Twitteratti walk up Carrock Fell”
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 (24.1Continue reading “Completing No9 off my 40 at 40 List – Yorkshire 3 Peaks”
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,Continue reading “A wet Twitteratti walk up Buttermere”
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 wasContinue reading “Striding Edge July 20th 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 toContinue reading “Cross Bay walk July 15th 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 aContinue reading “Great Gable July 8th 2012”
