Quite true.3 of my 4 children have done the Dof E to gold.My youngest is off to South America in the summer as a direct result of her wanderings.The others still go out with their friends for very long map guided walks basically to get muddy,have a laugh and get away from the internet for a day...
My Rambler arrived today.I've wanted a longer bag for quite a while so I can pack my large flask.It works perfectly and sits just right on my hip.Great construction too.I'm very pleased with it,thankyou.
A quick hop over the back fence and a walk to check the markers on one of the paths we have not been on before.Only a four hour walk but good fun with number two son.Most of it was OK but a few stiles gone and some markers needed at some points.
Photos are a bit...
Crumpets every time.One loaded with proper salted butter and the other the same but with added lemon and lime marmalade.
Just bought two packs ready for the holiday.I have to beat my daughter to them though !
I had one in a hole in the middle of my lawn a few years ago.Scared the life out of me when I touched it.I just put a marker by it so I knew where it was and let it get on with it.Perfect toad shaped hole though.
