Meeting the Outdoor Bloggers

This past weekend, I spent my time camping in Cheddar with the Outdoor Bloggers group. While it was only a short drive from home (and not an area in which I would usually look to go camping), it was also my first time meeting anyone from the group.

Two years ago, I probably wouldn’t have done this, through fear and anxiety. But I’m pleased to say that I have been. I’m going to share some of the highlights with you now and I look forward to meeting up with them all again in 2020, if not sooner.

#walk1000miles – March 2019

We’re halfway in to April and I’ve yet to set myself the time to sit down and write about my mileage from March! Before May arrives, I’m committed to doing that, now that I’ve moved home, had my broadband reconnected and feel better connected with the world wide web.

#walk1000miles – March 2018

Reviewing my month of walking, in the #walk1000miles challenge.

March. Shortest month of the year? Shortest month of every year???

I don’t know where it’s suddenly gone but, here with are in April; the season of spring (apparently) and it’s past-time to review my miles.

Butcombe Reccy

Saturday 24th February 2018

In less than three weeks time, I’ll be leading my next walk with the group.

This local outing was an effort to ‘reccy’ and finalise the route I had plotted and proposed for the occasion. I was actually leading another walk the very next day and you’ll be able to read my account of that experience, soon.

Shipham and Sandford, Somerset

Saturday 30th September 2017

I remember this weekend; a sense of urgency to walk, met with indecision on where to go and a reluctance to travel far from home!

There must’ve been a shortage of walks on the group’s program as well. Because I did end up staying close to home and my walk began following a short drive down the A38 and in to Shipham.

Combwich Coastal Walk

A circular walk from Combwich in Somerset that heads out to Hinkley Point before walking back along the coastal path.

Saturday 26th August 2017

This was one of those occasions where I was looking to do a walk but not entirely certain of where to go and also reluctant to travel too far from home.

I decided upon a fifty-minute drive south to Combwich near Bridgwater. From there, I could revisit a section of coastal walking that I first completed with Anna in 2016. Then, there would be the eyesore.

Three Peaks Walk: Clutton Completion

Completing the 16.5 mile long Somerset Three Peaks Walk; following a previously unexplored section around Clutton.

Saturday 19th August 2017

In north-east Somerset, there’s a lesser-known sixteen-mile circular trail known as the Three Peaks Walk. It bears no relation to the national challenge and there is no time limit in which to walk the full distance.

I’d previously followed the way around Pensford, Dundry and the Chew Valley several times. But there were a few miles near Clutton that I’d never walked and that was my intention for this outing.
