In an earlier topic I said that the XYL had given me permission to spend the week walking whilst she and the boys visit her sister in Southport. Well a plan of sorts is in place. I will be dropping them off at Southport on Saturday tea-time (6th Oct) and will proceed to my B&B in Windermere. The intention is to walk as many days as weather and body allow leaving the Lakes on the Friday 12th Oct.
I am making no plans as to which hills to do on which day but will do my very best to promulgate the summit prior to departing the hotel. I will also spotlite when at the summits.
The summits so far being considered - in no particular order or priority are - Helvellyn, Fairfield, Seat Sandal, Red Screes, Stony Cove Pike, Harter Fell, Holme Fell & Gummer How. That gives me a smattering of 1 pointers if the legs need a break.
I will try to operate on 145-fm, 144-ssb, 7.032 cw, 7.116/060 ssb, FE ssb/cw, 10.116. Maybe not all each time - depends very much on time at summit and wx etc.
If anyone has any thoughts on routes to any of the above mentioned they will be gratefully recieved. Also if anyone whats to know the secret to getting a 7 day pass to go walking submit your request on the back of a £20 note to me QTHR :-))
Look forward to working as many of you as possible. If anyone whats to join me for a beer in the evenings you are more than welcome.
