Walking to Angle tarn and Haywater Saturday
Suppose it depends on your situation and where you live...It looks nice out in the country but here in not so sunny Sunderland it turns to slushy ice too quickly..I try to run most days if i'm not oot and aboot wandering somewhere and the icy pavements etc make it lethal for my old bones
@A.B.Rode The Minaret on the previous page is your old one I lent to Hedley. Nicknamed Trigger's Broom as it has new fly & groundsheet so still going strong after 20+ years!
Its wearing better than me ..Perhaps that's the answer i need to replace some worn out parts starting with my legs...Good tents MacPac..I have the Citadel which i use for cycle touring(when doubling up)...Keep us posted on the Trekkertent Edge..It looks interesting...
Sunday afternoon towards the end of the walk, snow melting fast.
Monday lunchtime (Knorr Mushroom Pastaria)
Above Loch Eck,Cowal on Sunday. A harsh walk in deep snow drifts and a 'fresh' easterly wind. Got to load up my new rucksack and test it out.
Shameless link to wee report here.
Hard work perhaps, but looked like fun.
I'd estimated 2 hours to Summit.....it took me 3 due to conditions.
If anyone is on FB I posted a vid here. Can't upload to YouTube as my tinternet is brutally slow!!
I'm trying to get into watching videos of TRs - but they just don't 'do it' for me for some reason.
Just seen this on Twitter, looks great! More pics please
What fine looking shelter is that...?
Thanks Matt. More pictures. .. my fingers are frozen trying to post these on the hillside !
I was lucky enough to get one of 5 shelters that Colin Ibbotson recently built. First chance to use it today in mid Wales. More snow than I expected ! Great !
That's dedication to Trek-Lite!
What edh said, and, why does that shelter look so damn just right, real nice.
Very nice murpharoo, it looks like something in between a Hexamid and Solomid
One from this morning
Another from yesterday
A wee Timelapse from today's coffee stop. Well couldn't have my coffee getting diluted by the drizzle.
PS. I'm loving my new shelter thingy.
I like the bit where you exit rapidly...
Nice haul Cathy. It's been a good year for Pheasants.
Must try roasting one, always take the lazy breast option and leave the carcass for the wildlife.
First time out in about 3 weeks, you could say i was chuffed, weather was a bit moody though.
Started off at 14c and finished up at 6c
have you tried this?
I've not plucked a pheasant for years. life's too short!
Mole, the gamekeeper gave me a dozen in one go last year - I even had the kids plucking them . The gamekeeper showed me how skin them.
However, I usually do them in a casserole and I want the skin and all the carcass in there for full flavour . The worst plucking I ever did was a Greylag goose - really tough and I had tennis elbow at the time . Duck is a new one for me.
