Winter Draws on – A Competition
On 26th October 2009 I began a NorthernPies series of walks for the bagging of all of the 2000 foot tops in the Yorkshire Dales – That is, everything of 610 metres and over between the A65 and the A66 – the Aire Gap and Stainmore Pass. An account of each of the walks appears in this very blog – well, where else would it be? I’ve done them all except two. These last two will be done in one final walk. The question is: Which hill will be the last one? The prize is worth about twenty of your English pounds, is still in its original packaging and is something which will help to keep you warm during the forthcoming hardest-winter- since-the-last-one. In fact it’s so good, I might get one myself. This is a unisex piece of kit. Entries to the competition can be made either by a comment to this thread or by email (see my profile). Emails are more discreet, obviously. Some comments won’t be published straight away, though as I’ll be on my hols for some of the time. The closing date is midnight on 17 October 2010. Its likely that there will be more than one correct entry and, if so, a random draw will be made. Only one entry per reader and as I am de judge, my decisions on all matters concerning this competition will be final and there is no appeals mechanism. The hill will not have been climbed by me or superdawg since 26 October 2009 Which hill will be the last in the series?
I am a retired NHS Personnel person. All I do nowadays is walk about.
I used to have my pet dog Bruno with me (in the front page pic). he was Superdawg but he died. Now I have Lucky the pup. He's a bit like Bruno, only smaller and more suspicious.
