Am I the only person in the UK to think that as soon as we hit August we are practically in the Autumn? Sorry, I know this sounds daft but I have always thought this way. Of course the upside is that Autumn is my favourite time of the year. You can go walking in relatively mild conditions with relatively light evenings in relatively good weather (we always seem to get good Septembers and lousy July/Augusts).
Time for me to start planning a few trips I think. With my impending return to South Wales in September to start my new job it should ease the guilt pangs enough to allow me out and about on a few short camping trips. I am thinking of doing a wildcamp weekend in September with the kids and then a wildcamp without kids in October. The former will probably be the Black Mountains, the latter I am fancying Cader Idris and possibly the Rhinogs. The really bizzare thing is that I dont think I need any kit for a while, I am even tooled up ready for winter……
Half the fun is poring over maps, routes and kit lists and the anticipation.
Maybe I need to get out more
