A quick statistical and non-emotional roundup of wot-I-did-in-2009.
This will be especially helpful to absolutely nobody.
Look, I’m really just showing off, really. This is what happens when you divert your life away from distracting stuff like jobs.
A 4 day backpack based on Sanquhar – great fun till it blew a hoolie at the end.
TGO Challenge from Glenelg to Johnshaven. Fun, as ever…
Cumbrian High Level walk – which wasn’t very high level after the monsoon started
Hadrians wall by public transport.
South Tyne Trail (OK, some of this was a bit dull….)
Gaping Gill – worra jape. Thanks to Tony for the invite
Breakfast in Smallcleuch Mine and the solstice watch in Clevison Currick – Thanks to Brian and Charlie
A productive 2 weeks Hewitt bagging in North Wales. I paid for this…..
Camping under Manchester Airport’s stack on Kinder (ta to Tony again)
I’ve probably missed quite a few… but everything can’t be a highlight, innit, even though they might have been good fun.
The Bare Facts (phwoar)
126 days with hillwalking done – covering 1245 miles and 206850 feet of uphill, and still managed to be 3kg heavier at the end than the beginning….
36 nights wildcamping, 10 car camping nights, 6 campsite nights, 2 bothies and one big cairn
8 underground trips and just the one gill walk (downhill)
I’m pretty happy with that lot – its marginally more than 2008.
And that, as they say on the allotments, is shallott… I will now begin 2010.
Finally – thanks to this chap. (who really did eat all the pies?)
