Well, this is going out on Boxing Day 2022, a day when UK hikers, hillwalkers, mountaineers and climbers traditionally head out for the hills and mountains to walk off that extra helping of turkey and Christmas pud, so I’ll save the next blog post for a couple of weeks.
So, what are you waiting for, get those boots out! See you back here in a couple of weeks.
I've been mucking about in the mountains for longer than I care to mention. I started out by walking my local hills, then went on to rock climbing, mountaineering and skiing. Still doing it, and still getting a buzz. I'm now sharing the fun, through my guided walking business (Hillcraft Guided Walking) and by writing routes for other publishers, mainly Walking World and Discovery Walking Guides. Just to make sure I keep really busy, I am also currently a member of my local mountain rescue team.
I only wish I could go out – I can see I’m going to have to put a news post out!
I’ve just read why you won’t be going out! Blimey Carol, that sounded like a bit of an epic – hope that you are on the mend soon and that 2023 doesn’t bring in any nasty surprises.
Rather reminds me of a boxing day out on Coniston Cells 1968 with yourself & probably Andy Berrill. Followed by. Night of consuming beer & singing with John Bamber then mopping on deck in John’s mum & dad’s front room. This year we had a local gallop on our 1953 AJS. And we got hailstoned on😀😀
