    Managed to get up to the Lakes last week so thought I'd share a few photo's from my trip. Had a really good few days, took the Trailstar again and very happy I did as there were some strong winds which the Trailstar just took in it's stride! I'll be adding a write up and more...

    Back to the Lakes

    I've wanted to get out with my Trailstar ever since it arrived last month and I finally got the chance last week, so I thought I'd share a few photo's/words from my trip. With a couple of days free I decided to head up to the Lakes, back to one of my favourite areas around Borrowdale/Ennerdale...

    A couple of days in the Lakes

    I've just got back from a couple of days in the Lake District so I thought I'd share a few words and photo's from my trip As you've probably guessed from the photo above the trip was a rather wet one! Due to the weather I didn't take as many photo's as I'd have liked but I managed to come...

    A few nights away (Pic Heavy)

    I've just got back from a few nights away in the Lakes so I thought I'd do a quick write up and share a few photo's from my trip. I didn't really have too much of a plan for this trip, I just wanted to do a bit of walking and also to properly test out my hammock set-up. It took most of the...

    Weekend in the lakes

    Dear all, This coming weekend I am going to the lake district for my birthday, I'm planning on climbing Helvellyn (weather pending) but I also wanted to try my hand at a bit of foraging. I have a basic knife, a multi-tool flip out kit and that's about it at the moment. I was wondering...
