Waun Fawr Nite Walk

Just completed the 26 km circular walk onto Waun Fawr in the Black Mountains (Wales). Walk started from a village called Llanbedr and involved a 1064m ascent in total onto Waun Fawr and surrounding mountains. Difference this time was the walk was completed during the night, which made navigation hard, particularly during the 2 hours of rain and mist. Made Waun Fawr for sun rise but once again (after the same on the longest day previous year-Fan y Big) was disappointed by the non event due to cloud and mist. Arrived home tired due to no sleep but enjoyed it even though not all could make it (some cried off with feeble excuses)

One Year to go

Exactly one year today (all being well) I will have finished "the walk" A few celebration drinks this time next year at John o' Groats?????????

Clee Hill Training Walk

34km walk on the Clee Hills completed on what has got to be the hottest day of the year so far. 10 hours walking in total, felt quite drain by the end. Had Clive's company with a description of every bird we saw, however, they all scarpered before any decent photo's could be taken. Over 1100m ascent in total, a walk harder than any planned!! next year.
Followed large sections of both the Shropshire Way and the Jack Myton Way
