Things I want to do…

I have decided that this will be the year I finally get out and do some things I’ve been wanting to do.  Mostly that’s walking in the hills and some wild camping.  The walking I’m thinking about are doing some Wainwrights. There are heaps to choose from, no idea which ones I’ll do, but I’d like to plan to do a couple of days perhaps 2-3 with a couple of nights wild camping.  I’ve recently watched the video below and it’s inspired me to do it this year.  I have most of the gear and having lost some 48KG over the last 18 months I’m feeling a hell of a lot better.  I still need to get more fit, so must get back to gym 🙂

Check out blog postings over at Dean Read dot net. Here is the video of their Ennerdale Wainwrights video.

I don’t have a plan as to when I’ll do it, but I’m thinking mid-late summer.  Need to plan to do some day walks first and get an idea on what I’m in for.  The other “problem” is also finding someone to do these with.  It would be pretty foolish to attempt this sort of thing alone with the lack of experience.  So, I need for another nutter up for some fun too 🙂  If that’s you, lets chat, drop me a comment.

  2. Hi guys- great site, keep up the good work, you have a beautiful family 🙂

    As you’re interested in going wild camping, I wondered if you might fancy reviewing an product of ours for your site? It’s a WindUp Phone Charger & Torch which ensures that you don’t run out of charge or light when needed, making it perfect for camping trips and long walks.
    I’d be happy to send you out a free sample of the product in order for you to review it.
    Looking forward to hearing from you
    All the best

  4. I’ll do a couple of Wainwrights with you if you’ll do Hadrian’s Wall with me.

  5. Yes, I’ve not really looked into it much to be honest. I haven’t decided if I’ll bother dragging a radio along, but I expect I’ll take the HT at the very least.
