A while now since the last entry.
However, have been busy walking the Malverns, Moel Famau (Offa's Dyke), Hay Bluff (The Black Mountains) and finishing off the North Worcs Path,
More recently completing the Dalesway Walk, 84 miles from Ilkley to Windermere. This is the last long distance path being done in one before "the walk" next year and all went off ok.
Was able to test some kit and also buy some when in the shopping heaven of Ambleside. photo's off the walk are attached (not all as took over 500).
Following coming back did a 20 miler from Himley in the Black Country using a disused railway and canals, not much elevation but pleasant all the same.
Now looking forward to a 3 day stroll in the lakes mid September with all our kit carried on our back. Just contemplating having this as a trial run for all the kit I'll be carrying next year, Although i won't need it all. We're planning a fair few ascents, 21 summits in total so should be a test for the kit and me.
Most the kit I originally spec'd is brought however i am debating options in my head constantly and probably will until day 1. A blog of someone who has recently finished that i am reading went thro exactly the same so I am not alone in my indecision.
Well 224 days to go, can't wait
