That is really interesting. Will you do a review of your trip? Perhaps include photos of your grandfather, if that's possible? Whereas the reality of war is simply horrific, I can't help but find it fascinating.........
I'll be doing one on my blog, I'm not sure it would suit this forum but can add it if people will be interested. I have some photos of him too, including one of his own return trip to the scene in the 60s or 70s.
Thanks, vangoman02. we don't always appreciate where we live.
I think the porridge is better than bacon butties. Better for energy and easier to do.
I had a pot of tea as a matter of fact. With all the real ales on sale, oh the temptation.....
Hope you manage to secure your trip, spiritburner. I took a picture of Chatsworth but didn't include it on this post.
I was surprised that you don't camp in the summer, although last year my brother and I camped at Coopers last July and went to the pub instead (I felt a right git under my basha), as it was just too hot to climb Kinder, although we did walk it the day after.
Good luck with the lakes. I get the feeling your little lad is going to have a hobby from a very early start.
I can only speak for myself, privatehudson. I would love to read it. (I don't do face book!)

We do camp in the summer & go hill-walking (day trips) but my backpacking is October to April with maybe the odd trip in summer. I used to spend my summer hols backpacking in a previous life but that will come again with retirement hopefully (8 years to 60 with a bit of luck!)
