White Stones and Raise revisited (February, 2008)
A reprise of the walk Ed and I did prior to going to Mallorca. That day was cold, overcast and windy with lots of snow and ice about.

In contrast, today was warm, clear and still. We also went over the top of White Stones this time ...

the windy(less) meet - wasdale (February, 2008)
A long time in planning; all too short in execution....

'What, you are meeting people from a web forum for a walk' was the general exhortation (I must say I had doubts, but also intrigue)......

The best of it - I did not meet anyone I would not very happily wildcamp with again; the worst of it - nothing at all.

Read on for an account of the meet......

piot ridge (made it up :-) - haweswater (February, 2008)
I have studied el mappa and picked out a route that does not exist.... then looked about and found that half of it does....luckily the half we get to do prior to my untimely demise...

mini-meet eskdale (March, 2008)
A splinter group from the forum head out in search of some proper wind ;-) ...it did get up to about 30mph..

Lostsheep and I decide that talking is OK but walking is better and so we drag ourselves away from the computer to head out for a couple of nights in the Lakes.
