Walking opportunities have been limited so far this year - indeed, I haven't had a day of proper fellwalking since December last year.

No matter, that's all about to change... we're off to stay in Borrowdale for a few nights. Nothing too strenuous, though, as four of our party of eight are kids, and one of them is a complete newbie to this sort of thing.

It looks like we'll be lucky with the weather - the MWIS Planning Outlook this morning says "High pressure will dominate the weather, bringing extensive fine warm weather on the run up to and over Easter..."

So, in theory, there'll be no more of this:



For the others, packing for this outing continues apace. My stuff is ready to go, all I have to do now is sell a kidney so as to be able to afford petrol for the journey.

See you later!

  1. Ahh... now that picture, in that weather, brings back fond memories walking past that signpost.

    Forecast is indeed good for your weather. I'm hoping for the same in Northumberland next month when I get back to proper walking again.

    @Brian - Now you come to mention it, I can't remember ever seeing that signpost in any other conditions.
    Good luck in Northumberland, Brian, I look forward to reading about your exploits there.
