    Hello everyone.
    I recently got back into backpacking after long term illness (continuing).
    I did a small walk of 8 miles.
    I went from Ruthin to Llangynhafal stopped for the night in my basha then walked along the bottom part of the Clwydians.
    It was a major thing for me to do but I was very slow(about 5 hours to walk 4 miles).
    I was so happy to have achieved this and I'm looking forward to my next walk.
    All the best to you all.
    Ralph.

    Hi and welcome.

    I look forwards to you posting a few pics.My parents had a place just outside Llansannan when I was a teenager. Loved the Denbigh area and knew it well, once upon a time - bit out of touch now. My sister lives upon the edge of Halkyn mountain now so I have no excuse not to get back there more often :).

    I'm sure there is a long running joke about orange gear and I'll probably soon work it out.
