Evening, dry but chilly breezy. It's ta change l8r in wk. Ice an "possible heavy snow at a levels". Could be . As SOD likes da snow an can also mean more work. Peeps not 'keen' to go oot fer a walk wi der dug/s!!!!!!!!!!!!
I'm always Solo , no one knows where I'm going even if I try ti explain it , the trouble is with me that if the weathers good I can be doing things at the Hoose. don't want to go up a hill with a group on the 2nd tuesday of the month as the weather may be sh*t and not get clear photos .
Yay, the wind's stopped and it's not raining
Aye, 2nd (pick a day) o month, doesn't 'rock me boat' either............
A) I'm very rarely free, unless I plan months in advance.
B) Not that fond of most walking groups near where I am. Bunch of *******
C) I've to "wing it" when get chance if do have time.
Winter walking is a different thing altogether
Why I like so much, As a bonus not as many peeps about, Yeaaaaa.
Coastalrocks. Unless your going to be out in the depths of winter, on the higher mtns. where snow /ice will be constant and would "have" to get a B1 or B2 boot. Spikes should do for nearly anything else.
Spikes are for "easy" ice, frozen, compacted snow. As the majority of my hill going is in autumn/winter and being "slightly foolish" *, I carry both 'pons & spikes and use B2 boots.
* As in- Do leave details of your route....... I don't know where I'll go even when I get to start...........
You shouldn't "solo", especially in winter.......... Oops, I would 'solo' 90% of the time........ unless u count da SSCHoHMMSOD.
Etc. etc.......... If u check the un/written "rules" 4 Mtns. I 'break' a lot of them, nearly all the time. My only "excuse" is that's what I've always done. None of my 'local' friends are walkers, so I have to do it that way.
I would never advise anyone to copy what I do. I know it's very dangerous, I may be risking my life by doing so. It's a risk I accept and know about.
Bit "morbid" of a post.............
Want a laugh............. When oot strollin tada, met a Deerhound, looked sooooo funny MM & Zeta walkin side by side........ A "slight" difference in size..
