#walk1000miles – December 2019

As I’ve mentioned before, this will be my final entry in to a long-running series of #walk1000miles records. I think I’ve partaken in the challenge for four years now and I know that I’ve completed it twice, while this will be the second year where I’ve missed out by less than half a Century.

From the end of January 2020, I’ll merely be recording and reflecting upon my mileage with no relation to the challenge.

Plans for 2020

Welcome to a brand-new year! I knew what most of my plans and intentions for 2020 would be while we were barely in to the second half of 2019.

I’ll be making a YouTube video to compliment this one and, as I took all of the photos on my phone, you’ll have to forgive the social media-friendly portrait orientation!

Highlights of 2019

As the year draws to a close, I thought it might be beneficial for me to look back to some of my highlights and biggest achievements of the year gone by (in an outdoors-theme, of course). Too often, I’ve spent much of this year thinking over what I want but don’t have.

#walk1000miles – August 2019

With the arrival of September, our thoughts often turn to that of autumn, a chill in the air and the final passing of a summer that probably wasn’t as wet or miserable as we might choose to remember.

Brown Knoll and Rushup Edge

Friday 26th July 2019

It would be our final full day in the Peak District, six-days after we’d arrived. There was no group consensus over what to do; we each ventured off to our own accord.

My only thought was to get another walk in. I didn’t fancy driving anywhere and decided to leave the car alone… From our holiday base in Sparrowpit near Dove Holes, I’d be heading up on to the Dark Peak.

Staple Fitzpaine Herepath

Sunday 12th May 2019

This would be only my second ever walk in the Blackdown Hills AoNB. Both walks have been events led and created by Brunel Walking Group, where I have simply followed along and observed… Even though I probably live closer to this portion of Somerset than ninety-nine per cent of our club’s membership!

A chance to bag a trig, reach the highest point and explore paths that I would otherwise ignore. I made the drive down solo, straight from my home in Weston-super-Mare.
