Re: Newbie with sore legs and feet

I don't know if anyone else reacts like this but stiffness and aches after the toughest hill days disappear once I get going again. I've really struggled the morning after a big day but after a mile or two all is fine. Obviously if the aches are down to injuries then that's a different matter but do...

Re: All the Lakeland Tops

What a magnificent post. I wish I'd kept a diary of my walks for future reference.

Is it me or did all kids look the same in the early 80s? :D

Re: The benefits of bright clothing

I've always purchased any jacket\waterproof based on its comfort\fit\waterproofing qualities rather than colour but always thought that it's an added bonus if it comes in a bright colour. If the jacket\waterproof type I want is available in multiple colours I go for red\yellow. If it's only availabl...

What's the parking situation?

Re: Leave details in your rucksack

A friend of mine left his rucsac on the main Pennine Way so he could yomp over to the summit of the Cheviot in a more lightweight manner. On his return his rucsac, which contained his tent and other belongings, had gone. He spent over two hours searching in all directions before giving up and headin...

Re: Degenerative complex tear of medial meniscus

Thanks for the reply. Useful info.

Looks like 'see how it goes' is the way to go.

Degenerative complex tear of medial meniscus

Before I continue I'd like to add that I've not accidentally posted on the wrong forum :wink: Just before Christmas I banged my left thigh against a table corner. Just another knock or so I thought but over the next couple of days my left knee began to swell and movement quickly degenerated. The kne...

Re: Easing lockdown with an Atholl amble

Great report and superb photos.

I'd love to know who'd be wandering around at 22:45pm in this sort of area.

Re: Mountain Rescue

A few years back I badly damaged my left ankle on Kinder Scout. I was jumping around in the deepest darkest area of Kinder's bogs when my ankle turned completely over, cracked and began to swell at an alarming rate. After deciding I could hobble on I 'very' slowly made my towards the western rim and...

Re: positive mental attitude

One of the most magical experiences for me when walking in crap weather is the possibility of the view suddenly appearing after hours of seeing nothing. It doesn't happen very often but a sudden cinemascope panorama of peaks, ridges, cliffs and lakes is breath taking and well worth getting soaked for.

Re: Bull in a Field

It was on the Pennine Way in 1986 that we came across a field with a sign that said 'The bull can run across this field in 20 seconds - can you?'. Obviously a humorous warning to inform walkers that there's a bull in the field but no what you want to read when you're carrying a huge rucsac. I'm come...

Re: Aonach Eagach E-West defeated by Pinnacles (pure FEAR)

I've done the Aonach Eagach on three occasions - twice in dry conditions and once after a heavy shower that left the rock in a horrible greasy state. I can safely say that the experience when the rock was greasy was far worse than when in the dry. Interestingly I was the only person on the ridge whe...
