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...

PW2010 – Planning Update #5

I have most of my accommodation booked now, all but four locations in fact. These have been emailed but have not yet responded, so I’ll give them a couple of days more and then phone them. I would hate to miss out on a place now that so many others...

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

A quick question to folk who have commented (or tried to comment) to my blog recently….. Have you had any problems getting comments accepted through the spam filter? I’m using WP-SpamFree and I get absolutely no spam at all – it’s miraculous – but I’m a little concerned that it...

Long Distance Path 2010

Until just a few days ago I had no idea where I was going to walk next year – normally by this time of the year I know what I’m going to be doing and I’ve even started planning it and booking it. This year I’ve been busy doing other...

Review: Trailblazer Pennine Way Guide

I had an unexpected email a couple of weeks ago from the marketing department at Trailblazer Guides. They had seen my short review of their Coast to Coast guidebook on my Walking Places C2C pages and based on that they asked if I’d be interested in reviewing some of their...

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...
