true but they are still good mementoes even if not for the rucksack.
For a preview of the 5th edition of my book The Walker’s Handbook; Everything you Need to Know about Walking in the British Isles click here. Then click on ‘Reviews of The Walker’s Handbook' in the Navigation panel to the right of the illustration of the cover.
Perhaps you could also get one of those walking stick badges to nail onto some carbon poles.

I remember those patches! They were great!
If it's any help, there's a farm on the main route off Conni Old Man that sells badges.
Following a request of one of my veiwers, I've found that Youdale's Newsagent in Keswick sells a selection of the old sew on mountain badges similar to the ones I collected as a kid. Poor idea for Gortex but a great idea for fleece jackets or cotton stile gillets.
Phone them on 01 768 772259 and ask for details
Hi New Climber,
The farm cafe at Seathwaite is not open this year so I presume the t-shirts are not on sale.
See my previous message for Youdale's shop in Keswick for a badge. (Please ignore spelling mistakes - stile/style)
I'm going to have "Didn't I meet you up Scafell Pike?" tattooed across the cheeks of my arse - it'll add interest for other walkers when I moon them.
I don't really get this 'souvenir' stuff anyway. To me, it's the fell walking equivalent of stamp collecting. Isn't it satisfaction enough to know you've walked up this or that hill? Mind you, I'm just an elderly sceptical curmudgeon so what the feck do I know?
Been into the Youdale shop in Keswick but he has none. His supplier of cloth badges no longer makes the metal ones for sticks. Sorry about that.
