We needed to get away for a break. I’ll let the pictures tell the story. Many thanks to Lord Elpus for arranging this all at short notice. You can make the pictures bigger if you click on them.
What is all this about? You have been for a sneaky walk and looks like a fantastic wild camp. Nice one Alan. Got the legs warmed up for the Challenge I hope.
That's more like it, Alan! Fantastic pictures, great setting. Glad you could take your mind off them blasted blades.
Great pictures Alan...looks like a brilliant wild camp.-Trevor
Looks like a lot of fun! Wish I could go there!
Good to see you getting out and about Alan, Nice pics and wild camp sites.What no pictures of Sellafield! It’s one of my fav’s from there.
Looks good! Places like the Lakes and Dartmoor are going to become more crowded as people start to avoid the turbine forests of Scotland.
Lovely pics, Alan! It's good to get out.
I don't know about the legs "being warmed up" - but on Monday morning they were complaining like hell! They need to get out more. I know, I shall send them out tomorrow and when they come back they can tell me where they have been.
I wish I was as Ansel Adams as wot you are. Nice pics, Al that capture the weekend well. Sorry about the legs ;-)
Great Stuff Alan, and a rather fine 3 days if I might say so.I have also managed my write up on my blog HERE
Lord Elpus has very kindly supplied a narrative to the weekend. He is good with words, that boy...He should go far...http://www.blog.doodlecat.com/2011/04/tgo-final-shakedown.html
You got views! Fab pictures. Tents in the foreground really make a view somehow.
I think Andy takes the "Ansel Adams" prize for his moody shot above Ennerdale. However, there's PW's pictures to come yet...BTW, How do you do that "Here" thing in the comments, Andy? That be wizardry, that'd be...
Hi Mark - Yes - I agree, tents do help! It was really helpful having all those colours as well!We had a lime green one, two dark greens (a bit dismal, dark green), a bright red and a pale blue. 2 x Stephenson Warmlites, & 3 Hilleberg Aktos. All five of us wearing Paramo.
Nice pics! I must sort mine out today.
PW: Really looking forward to them...Will you be putting them on your blog or your photo site?
great piks and love the colourful band of tents! - look fwd to the reports from tgoc
