PW2010 – Planning Update #4

For anyone still bothering to read my witterings on this subject I have good news (I think!). Although I couldn’t get into Keld Lodge, I have found room in Butt House for the 12th May, which means I can keep my original start date of the 5th May and I...

PW2010 – Planning Update #3

Well it was all going so smoothly as well – too smoothly obviously. I got two emails today that threw the spanner into the works a little bit. The first one was from the baggage courier – it seems that Brigantes are the only people that will carry your bag...

PW2010 – Planning Update #2

I know, I know.. another update so soon? I’ve been busy – I’ve got a route planned (mostly) and I’m starting to add the pieces of the B&B puzzle into place. For a while I gave some thought to not using a baggage courier and saving some money – but...

OMG! PW2010 Initial Planning Fright

I’ve just done a couple of rough calculations on how much the Pennine Way is likely to cost me. I’ve already decided it’s going to be along the lines of my previous long distance walks – that is B&B all the way and baggage courier to ease the strain and...

Apologies

I’ve had a couple of emails recently, asking about the progress of my Coast to Coast 2009 journal. I know this is well overdue and although I’ve started writing it up, I’m a long way from completing it – so I must apologise to those who are waiting. Sorry. Thanks...

New Lakes walking blog

Just a quick post to bring folks attention to a brand new walking blog, mainly covering the Lakes, from someone who has recently got into walking and has developed a love of the high places in Cumbria – like so many of us I guess. You can read about his...

Official: I’m Old!

I’ve been told I’m old – officially, by a doctor no less. Of course she didn’t use the work “old”, she used something much more laden with dread and clouded with preconceptions. She told me I have arthritis! The good news (apparently) is that it’s osteo and not rheumatoid. I’ve...
