    Hi I'm Enzo. I live in Hampshire and am relatively new to all this with just a few jaunts to Wales etc in my youth.
    I'm a bit of a gear head
    I've really enjoyed reading books and blogs of thru hikers recently like carrot quinn and kieth foskett so my dream is one day to do the pct etc, but with a young family that's looking decades away!
    I'm contenting myself with local trails, South downs, hangers way, St swithins way etc sometimes joining some together so I can spend the night out and make a weekend of it.
    I hope to do some longer trips like the ridgeway and perhaps some of the European routes in the future.

    Hi. Plenty to do in Europe until the kids grow up ;) And gear is a fun distraction...

    Welcome from north Hampshire!
    Know the feeling of having a young family and only having the occasional night away but I'm told by those older that it'll get better!
    Oh and you've come to the right place if you are a gear head ... Although the wallet might not agree.

    I go to see my family in italy most years so plan to do some walking in abruzzo national park, bears, wolves 3000m mountains etc so I can pretend I'm doing the pct!

    We had an enjoyable low-level walk in Italy a few years ago along the via Francigena from Pontremolli to Lucca. Beautiful small villages and ancient churches.

    Welcome to the forum.

    "Normal visitors" .. At the top? .. Errm should every newbie get one of them.?

    Hello Enzo!

    Yes drag your kids up hills..
    They'll hate you for it sometimes..
    Maybe even rebel, and refuse as teens.

    Then thank you for it, and come back to it later...

    A kite helps.. :rolleyes:

    (with just about, everything)

    Wow, what a welcome! Thanks !
    I can't wait for the kids to be old enough, 3 and 5 atm so not up to 20-30mile days yet.
    Kite is a good idea I'll give that one a go!
