A month….whoosh! September here and nearly gone. Walking opportunities quite limited due to work pressures and family commitments. A few local walks done but no mountains this month, or camping…..
Actually I tell a lie. I did go camping 4 weeks ago for a whole weekend. The only trouble was that it was with 4 kids (2 my own and 2 “borrowed”) and on a commercial site. Having said that we were based in Exmoor and so did manage a few woddland and river walks. I also shamelessly managed to read unmolested for half the weekend whilst the kids were playing in the park 🙂
Havent been to Exmoor for a couple of years now but the area is superb for rolling hillsides and unspoilt scenery in the main. A trip to Exford and Dulverton provided a welcome interlude for me and the kids and an opportunity to buy ice cream 😀
The next trip might be a while as the workload winds up a notch again in the next couple of months. Maybe a bothy trip or a bivvy night is in order in October. Some bits of kit (mostly 2nd hand) to try out so quite keen to fit this in somewhere! A lack of funds has also presented itself recently due to the car developing suspension issues so am brassed out again!
Wake me up, when September ends……
