Plans for 2010

After a very good 2009 an inactive Christmas holiday (in terms of of outdoor adventures) has got me thinking about plans for 2010.

Well already in the calendar are The Grizzly, The Stickler and supporting a friend doing the Devizes to Westminster canoe race.

What I would like to do more of this year are solo backpacking trips to North Wales and the Black Mountains, and hopefully the Across Wales walk.

My son is keen to do another Dartmoor trip and so am I. But this evening he was asking about the trips my Dad and I did on Offas dyke when I was his age. He thought it would be a good idea if we finished it. Dad and I got from Chepstow to Knighton, walking for a 2 or 3 days each Easter holiday.

I think Scotland is off the cards this year, even though when I am looking at books and websites and begin to plan my dream trip that is where I always end up.

Happy New Year


  1. All the best. Hope your plans work out!

  2. that's such a lovely idea to do a repeat trip with your son. hope all your outdoor plans come true in 2010 and maybe even a trip to wee bonnie scotland ;)

    happy new year!

  3. Thanks. What I remembered today was the unfinished Wessex Ridgeway should be on the list as well.
