I've been kind of putting this off for a while because this blog was by a woman I went to school with, she sadly died in her sleep on the 8th of may this year. To be honest, even though I read her name and knew the family members mentioned in the obituary somehow I kind of hoped it wasn't her. She was one of those people I wouldnt see for a year or two, then see at some random place and have a long conversation with and catch up. Her long term partner died not so long ago and it obviously it hit her hard. Anyway, I kind of feel Kates blog is worth sharing as she wildcamped up a lot of mountains, went down 400 foot multi pitch abseils into Coniston coppermines on her own and generally did some impressive things. I feel honoured to have known her and saddened that she's dead. Anyway, her name was Kate Tyler and her life was an inspiration. https://katewildcamping.wordpress.com/ The blog covers aspects of her grief as well as her anxiety about being in crowds and meeting new people, lets face it, likely something a few of us can sympathise with. Its well worth a read and if you only look at the mountain photos its still beautiful.
