So glad I clicked on this thread today after reading the other depressing shit about the football!

Love the Lakes. Only return once a year these days. My wife always allows me a day to myself, to climb something the kids can't. I get them up some smaller ones though and often take a morning/evening run up a small fell.

I'll have to put some pics up after my next trip (April). Hopefully do the Coniston Fells, take the kids up Hallin Fell and run Binsey... weather permitting!

Cheers for cheering me up after another crappy result.

Good luck with that. There's only been one eagle since his mate died in 2004 and he hasn't been seen for over a year.

I remember seeing them back in 1994?? With youngster. It's a shame they've not prioritised the relocation, although I kind of understand the logic of strengthening the populations in Southern Scotland and hope for natural spread.

Wild camped at Small water once. Tends to be a lovely quite corner of the Lakes.

Incidentally , does anyone count (with or without a specific aim to complete) Wainwrights, nuttalls, hewitts etc.

My daughter asked recently and I have clocked up 108 Wainwrights. Not recorded others.

With all that fresh air and exercise, scattering ashes will be a long time off yet if ever ;) we only managed a shortish walk on Sunday a drive down to Wasdale and a walk round probably one of the most photographed lakes in the district Wastwater.

Decided to give this lark a go this morning. Picked a easyish route out for me as on a scale of 1 to 10 my fitness is 1.000001. Anyhow I walked a couple of miles up a forestry track but couldn't see the top of the hill I was gonna go up so gave it up as a bad job. Will try again on a clearer day. Route was gonna be from cold fell road to Grike and onto Crag Fell.

Alan you really should consider the idea of using Dreamstime or iStock for your pictures. You have a wonderful eye for awe, a lot of these pictures are breath taking and deserve to be seen by a wider audience, and make you a little coin into the bargain.

I know they would sell as I've sold a few of them already just to test the water so to speak. (Joke)

Cumbrianblue don't know how old you are but you're certainly clocking the miles up and by the sounds of it enjoying a well earned treat afterwards the Buttermere area is another great place to get out and about.
The only downside when I was last there was the Fish was closed for a referb better luck next time :(
