Time to start packing – Ennerdale beckons

You'll all be spared the ordeal of new entries on my blog this coming weekend, as Chris is allowing me to escape up to the Lakes for a wildcamping weekend around Ennerdale.

The weather's looking fair, this is the outlook from MWIS:

PLANNING OUTLOOK: all mountain areas of Britain
Fine weather over England and Wales this weekend and early next week will spread across Scotland by Sunday – after showers here on Saturday. Winds will fall light, and extensive sunshine is likely, after fog clears from valleys in the mornings.
Forecast issued at 1600 Tuesday 2nd October.

But what the hell, the last time I went wildcamping when the forecast was looking grim, the weather turned out to be brilliant, so I reckon I'll bank on being lucky again. What's the worst thing that can happen? I might get a bit wet. It's hardly the end of the world, is it?

Hopefully I'll get a few half-decent pics to add to the report that I'll post early next week.

Now, back to the packing... Hmmm... Which tent? Which sleeping bag? Which rucksack? Oh, FFS, it's all so much hassle, maybe I should cut down the options by flogging some of my gear when I get back.
