Honey I’m Home

superdawg rests on his laurels

This is me back from sunny Wales (It only rained three times…!)  As you can see from the title picture, we are all feeling a bit jaded from all that uphill stuff – I’ll be doing just the one blog post about Wales shortly.

and I’ve been catching up with emails and what the cat did behind the TV whilst we were away – but what about that competition. I had a small flood of entries – and there is one correct answer….. 

But its not quite the time to announce this yet. But nearly

As for Wales, I think it was reasonably successful. There is a score on the door.

a steep bit on the arans

I managed to bag 5 Marilyns, 9 HuMPs, 13 Hewitts, 20 Nuttalls, 6 Deweys and Clwyd’s county top.

I have to say that there is a lot of overlap between each of the categories of hill mentioned.

There were 58 miles and 14000 feet of upwardly mobile struggling  and an equivalent of downhill coasting. I got wet twice (briefly) and had one magnificent temperature inversion and company on two of the seven walks.

I’ll do the post and the competition winner shortly……

I can’t wait….

Welcome back. It looks like it was a good trip. Can't wait to read the adventures.

What are these HuMPs ? As a HMP3 I am curious (very).

Was at The Black Bull in Frosterley last Saturday for an Unctous Scoff. Braised shin of beef. Later we processed through Crook. And now I begin to understand . . .

a HuMP, Hump3, is a hill which has a HUndred Metre Prominence. i.e at least 100 metres drop all the way around. This ensures a good view (usually/oten/sometimes...)

Y'mean you passed within 200 metres of Kinpetowers and failed to call in? .... dhuhh......
