Not so many wild camps in 2021 then, but plenty of camps if you include campsites. I’ve also been lucky enough to do three, decent long distance routes, all of them great fun. I did have a flight booked out to Sweden again in August, but, as in 2020, I once again postponed it. Hopefully my Scandinavian trip will now happen in 2022!
All of us – me, Geoff, Pebbles and Islay – had a wild camp out on Kinder, meeting up with Daniel and William for the night.
Dale and I did a 2 night circuit from Hayfield, on a hot, bank holiday weekend.
The first of this years long trips. Dale and I walked the Settle to Carlisle Way, over 10 days. Great weather and a surprise meet up half way along with Nick Marston bearing cake!
The second long trip of the year and Geoff and I did the Cumbria Way over 10 days. More rain on this trip than the previous one, but still excellent fun. Peter joined us on the first day, and Gary and Alfie joined us on the last day.
So September came around, and Dale and I did the Herriot Way over 5 days. I was expecting real autumnal conditions by now, but it turned out to be proper Indian summer weather.
So, despite everything, all in all a pretty good year trip wise!
Happy New Year to you all and I wish you health, happiness and lots of great adventures – whatever your passion may be.
