Onwards and upwards

Strictly speaking I’m not retired yet. I’m working three months notice. However, I am not required to go into the office much so I’m as good as retired. So that means….a lot more backpacking. In three weeks time I’m going to do a five-day backpack around the western side of the Lake District. I’ve more or less decided the route, which will be mainly high level. I will be taking the Scarp again. This time I might encounter more testing conditions. I’ve started to write a preliminary review, which I will post over the next few days, but the real test is likely to come in the future. I’m also toying with the idea of walking all or part of the South Downs Way in June.

A nice secluded pitch somewhere in the Northwestern fells

    1. More likely sheep than a mower! The tent is a Mountain Equipment AR Ultralite 2 which is another tent that could have been a lot better. Even more flappy and noisy in wind than the Comp.
