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!)

The true test of fairness is how fair you are to those who are not

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!)
