Hopefully, I shall be up in the Lake District for a few days next week. I have a route in mind but I shall have to be flexible as the weather forecast at the moment doesn’t look particularly good. I hope to do the High Stile ridge on Wednesday, but Netweather is suggesting that it’s going to be a rainy day. In the end, you just have to go with it and plan alternatives.
I don’t know which shelter to take: the F10 Nitro Lite 200 or the Trailstar with OookStar. I’m going to take both and make a decision when I’m there. I’ve also bought a new pair of lightweight mid boots, the Salomon X Ultras. After a few dog walks, they seem to be very comfortable, very much like wearing trail shoes, but with the advantage of being mids. They feel even better than my Fastpackers, which I’m retiring to garden boots after two years of sterling service.
