The Liebster Award - my turn!

Goats galore!

The above image, if I follow the rules, is supposed to be a logo, but the hideous Liebster logo displeased me intensely, so in its place, I have a picture of goats! You can't have too many pictures of goats!

The 5 in 5 Challenge for Multiple Sclerosis Society

Team Social Hiking peak #5 - Base Brown

On 21st June, team 'Social Hiking' took part in both the 10 in 10 challenge – hiking 10 peaks in the Lake District in 10 hours, and the 5 in 5 (5 peaks in 5 hours) in aid of MS Society. I was in the 5 in 5 Challenge. A shorter, but by no means easier, undertaking.

5 in 5 Challenge: Recce



I can only attribute the decision to a temporary lapse of sanity, or an unusual sense of bravado. Whatever the reason, I was committed, and immediately questioning it. Signing up for the 10 peaks in 10 hours challenge for MS Society a few months back seemed a great idea; time to focus the mind on a spot of training, and have the opportunity to meet up with fellow Social Hikers for a great weekend.

Bluff Knoll: my final bushwalk


My final bushwalk of the trip, and it was one I had finally come to do after first standing at the start 16 years ago. Back then, I was on a coach tour of the South-West, and the car park of Bluff Knoll was merely an attraction that had to be hurriedly ticked off, so there was no walking, just looking up at the 1095 metre mountain before jumping back on the bus for the return to Perth. Back in 1997 I hadn't even discovered the delights of bushwalking, hiking, tramping, rambling, or whatever you call it, so I doubt I would have been inclined to have set foot on it anyway!
