  1. This log is just showing off! Puts most of the rest of us to shame 🙂 Then again when I look at my list of walks this year it compares well in terms of numbers of days out. Rather less well in relation to distance!!! have you applied for the TGOC in 2015? I do hope so.

  2. I’m a bit lazy when it comes keeping the log up to date, I put things in there when I remember. And you’ll notice that most of it is close to home in the Pennines. Consequently like you I start repeating walks after a while, walking them in reverse or in a different season…..or with a different pair of shoes on. But I don’t bother logging them again. I try to do a 15-20 mile walk every weekend, and aim to get out overnight each month from March to October.

    Unfortunately I missed out in September, to many chores getting our stables ready for winter. But I’m aiming to get out to Snowdonia for a backpack before the end of October.

    • p.s. I’ve not applied for the TGOC 2015 yet. But Dave and Graham have been in contact so I’m certainly considering it….very strongly considering it. And I have my pass-out already signed by my ever understanding wife Sue.

      And you ? Wavering ?

      • I’ve applied! Probably Strathcarron start. Working on my route in the hope I get through the draw. Glad to hear that the Chuckle Brothers will be on it. Hope you apply and hope our paths (more than) cross.

      • The hills are calling, and that will include the choice of pitch. High up, out in the wilds and probably with more than a touch of frost. When I backpacked the Dales Way for the first time aged 14, I had to do something unmentionable on the porch zip in the morning to defrost it. It was the only way to get out. I’m not aiming for a repeat performance though.
