Plans on ice

Posted by @ 8:29 pm on Friday 31st October, 2008.

Events have conspired to force the cancellation of this weekend's intended wildcamping trip. Mike Bell was going to accompany me on a leisurely round of the Coniston Fells (from Dow Crag round to a pub in Coniston via Holme Fell) but he's got a bad back and needs to rest up. I was going to do the route with or without him, but there are things I need to get done here this weekend, things that I should have got done during the week but never did. It's a shame, because the weather up there's going to be excellent, according to the forecasts. Never mind, the route (and hopefully the snow) will still be there next month.

I'll leave you with something for Halloween, courtesy of Colonel Blimp:

    Forgot to mention - there's a per-post subscription option above the comment input box, and feed options in the address-bar (if you're using Firefox).
