Hi TM, unless you have a visual impairement I guess you mean seeking walking companion, If you DO have a visual impairement, what form is it?
I probably can't help with the walking much as I am based in Guernsey and don't get over to the UK as much as I would like, although I am in Snowdonia and Scotland over the easter period.
Good luck in your search, keep an eye out for the meets as I am sure you will find interesting folk at these.
Welcome Townmouse, have a look in "Meets and Partners" and see what's doing, there are a few meets going on, you just have to ask and you will get a reply at some stage .
What area are you in or interested in walking in ?.
Hi Steve D
Thanks for the reply; no I haven't a visual impairment I am finding it difficult editing my profile details as part of the screen is covered by other information boxes. May be a fault my end?
I have joined the Backpackers Club but I was the only one logged in at lunch time? what's that all about.
I cycled round Jersey last Easter with my ex BF and thoroughly enjoyed the experience; how tolerent Jersey drivers are!
Hope that I do find a companion soon! I can walk on my own easily enough but life's too short to be on your own .
Sorry I didn't answer you original question; I live in South Wales but prepared to walk anywhere, as long I have time to get to the location. I'm off to walk the Cornish costal walk the last week in March - first week in April. Its rather a lose break i'm not being strict about the walk as most of them will be circular walks from the book I have '50 walks in Cornwall'. I'm taking the car, my new 2nd hand tent which I'm pleased with and all the normal camping gear ;o)

Thanks. Will do it if the weather is ok. If not will just wait until the summer as don't want to do it if its misty and can't enjoy the views
Your not the only one that struggles in here at times Townmouse , if you click the "see" above it will take you to that thread, leave a message at the bottom for Maria if you are interested and she will get back to you when she can ( I only know its in Wales ), hopre this helps, there are other meets on the go depending if you want ( or can ) travel to them
Welcome to OM

Jersey is OK but not as good as the real thing (Guernsey is soooo much better! )
as Alexander says there are loads of folk that use your area on here, you should find someone soon. You are welcome to accompany me if I'm doing anything solo, but that is usually Scotland or the Alps for me. I tend to spend most of my time in the UK with Gold and Silver DofE group, I have been on forum meets but not any of the OM ones so far, they seem a friendly bunch.
.. I'm off to walk the Cornish costal walk the last week in March - first week in April. ...
Oh, that's a coincidence - me and a friend will be tramping the north Cornwall section of the SWCP that week too. Are you camping? If so, where?
Welcome to OM, by the way. Have a look in the Meets and Partners section - there's usually some meets with spaces spare and it's a great way toi meet like-minded people.
I am still relatively new myself and they dont seem a bad bunch
I gather a few of us live in easy ish commute of the Brecon Beacons- ie South Wales/Gloucestershire.
The meets are good opportunity to meet the crowd and enjoy the company.
I know much of the Cornish Coast, especially St Ives to Lizard as my old area and being biased I rate it all.

Who? Us lot on OM or 40sWalkersnorth?

I'd certainly go along with that. IMO the whole of the SWCP in north Cornish from Hartland Point right down to Cape Cornwall provides some of the finest walking in southern Britain.
I love it all, but especially the more remote sections such as around Morwenstowe, south from Crackington Haven, between Trebarwith and Port Gaverne, from Porthcothan to Mawgan Porth, the tin-mining area around St Agnes, and the really wild stretches west of St Ives. On the other hand, much of Cornwall's south coast fails to hit my spot.
Skip - Instead of hijacking this one I started a new one re 40's walkersnorth
Back to the thread - Townmouse if you fancy day trips, would be happy to join you and sure others would - just post what you are planning and you will probably get takers
I've been attempting to sign in on the 40's walkersnorth but it must be our server here; i'll have to sign up later
Trouble is Chewie I'm still learning to use map/compass and tbh use to rely on my ex BF and therefore haven't the confidence to walk any takers ;op
I'm more of a sheep i guess when it comes to walks but that is very likely to change this year! ;o)
I'm looking forward to Cornwall as I need some time out and find out what I want out of life etc so good weather would improve the break.
TBSkip, yes I am camping out; where? as I've said its a rather loose break for me with no targets to speak of so where ever I pitch my tent rather than lay my hat!
I can't read a map either TM , some of the folk < boys and girls > on here have been on courses ( I'll put a link in later ) I'm sure they would give you and idea and advise if you saw them at a meet.

The next OM Navigation Skills training course will be run on Saturday/Sunday March 31st/April 1st 2012. Same price as previous courses and same venue. It is definitely going to run. Three people have booked places already. Contact me via the thread or pm me if you need any further information. Regards Iain
