High Mountain trip Next Year

I am keen to get to the Himalayas or perhaps the Andes next year. I'd prefer to go with trusted cronies - so if you might be keen on the same thing please let me know, otherwise I'll book on an Exodus trip (I had to explain to Caroline this is not a one way journey to Switzerland!) in October as an individual.

Saunders Lakeland Mountain Marathon 2016

Great to be out with Tony Hewitson this weekend in weather that was cold wet and windy (Sat) and not much better (Sun). Good navigation and steady pace got us halfway up the field. Up for next year with (hopefully) a strong MoB presence.

Tough on the Streets - cushy in the pub

Derek's Street Orienteering idea turned out to be an absolute cracker!

6 brave competitors took to Rammy's notorious roadways. All of them returned (5 on time). Undisputed champion was Nigel (590 points) closely followed by Elliot (500) with a great performance from veteran Dave Dixon (340) who still had the energy to pursue a spurious argument about a control being in someone's garden (come on Dave it was night time!).

Thanks for the loan of the harnesses.
We missed the walk today as I spent longer getting my mum's new tv to work than I thought I would and I didn't ralise the drive was an hour away. However Amy and I made up for it with a great afternoon at Troy Quarry instead- using her new harness!
