    I have been lurking here for few months and recently joined up, so reckoned I should take the time to say hello.
    I've been on BCUK and British Blades for years. I've also camped and been involved in the outdoors for as long as I can recall, have in the past been involved in taking young offenders on DofE and other outward bound type activities.
    With the general decrepitude that comes with advancing years, especially a pair of worn out knees, I've lately tended to static camp and usually take a car which has meant anything but lightweight camping. It has also meant that I'd mentally put walking far well off the agenda until I was enticed into walking the Camino Portugues just before last Christmas and completed it, carting about 10kg for 253 kilometres over ten days let month.
    As a result I am now well and truly bitten by the bug again and apart from wanting to do the coastal route of the Camino next year, I have set my sights on St Cuthbert's Way later this year with other shorter outings in between.
    I have to say that lightening the personal lard I have been carrying has probably made the biggest difference, but like most folks I like bright, shiny new kit and I am now beginning to address the kit I carry thanks to the knowledge and advice that this place and it's membership have to offer.

    Somehow posted this as I was editing the title, so if a kind Mod could edit the title back to Hello Everyone I'd be eternally grateful - Ta. :)
