I like nothing better than escaping to the hills to get away from it all, either yomping up them or skiing down them. Swapping the hectic pace of life in the South East for the simple pleasure of putting one foot in front of the other whilst enjoying the majesty of the mountains is the best antidote to the madness of modern life I know. And the pint afterwards isn't bad either.
With that in mind, here are a few outdoorsy things:
One Man and His Bog - diary and pictures from my three week jaunt along the 275 mile Pennine Way
Scots Wahey! - diary from my first attempt at a long distance path, the Wet Highland Way...and that's not a typo!
Are you a Kit Monster? - Beware! This can happen to anyone...
