Quo Mapping Discount Code

I really don’t like adverts, not on my TV, not on the radio I listen to and certainly not on any website I have any control over. I will never – and that is an unequivocal NEVER – open any of my websites up to commercial advertising. I’ve turned down...

An iPhone beater?

I know there are many iPhone users in the outdoors blogging community, myself included. The iPhone has its faults, but so far it’s been the most complete and flexible package when it comes to writing, creating and publishing blogs on the move. There is a new device in town now...

Back home

Well the op went well apparently. The consultant tells me that there was minimal damage to the knee and she only had to do a small amount of remedial work. I was last on her list so spent the whole day waiting, sat on my own with an audiobook slowly...

New Boots (but not panties!)

Apologies to any non “Dury-aware” readers, but coming up with attention grabbing titles isn’t easy and that one was a little too good not to use. Another rush of blood to the head yesterday morning and I found myself £79.99 lighter in the bank balance, but very much in credit...

OS under the spotlight in You & Yours

I was pointed in the direction of You and Yours on Radio 4 on Monday at noon. Apparently (I am hopefully reliably informed) they will be discussing the Ordnance Survey and recent moves to make more of their products freely available to the general public. I won’t get on my...

Nothing’s ever simple!

PW2010 – Planning Update #6

Barring a disaster, that’s it, I’m done. It’s all booked, deposit cheques are in the post and all I need to do now is get fit enough to walk it 🙂 The total price of 17 nights accommodation finally came in at £556.95 (the 95p being the only non-full pound...

One last walk before the op!

I have one weekend left before I go under the knife – so I have my fingers, toes, legs and everything else that is even remotely cross-able, crossed in the hope of half-decent weather. I’m hoping that Tex will be able to join me now that his weekends have become...

A Walk beside the Ure

I avoided Cumbria last weekend – for obvious reasons, and my thoughts go out to everyone affected by the floods. I went instead to Yorkshire and chose a walk along the Ure – Wensleydale’s primary river. It’s been about 4 years since I walked along it and I resolved to...

Hollywood in the Yorkshire Dales

I was watching a film the other week – one of those 1am films that they can’t show at any other time as they are just so awful it would offend the decent taste of most folks if shown any earlier. It’s not rude or anything – just crap! The...
