Return of the Beast – March 2018

Sunday 18th March 2018

I find it hard to believe but, the Met Office are warning of freezing temperatures and possible snowfall over the coming Easter weekend… This would mean a third instance of snowfall for the southern half of the UK!

Bearing in mind that we hadn’t seen much more than a few flakes since 2013. During the return visit of the ‘Beast from the East’, I did manage a simple solo walk over to the neighbouring village of Churchill.

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.

Snow 2018: Wrington to Goblin Combe

Saturday 3rd March 2018

This was only a fortnight ago and yet, here we are, bracing ourselves for ‘Mark II’ of the Beast from the East!

My second walk of the previous experience would again set off from my doorstep in Wrington. Although the roads had been cleared, I wanted to keep things very local.

Snow Along The Yeo – March 2018

Friday 2nd March 2018

As temperatures appear to have settled at fairly comfortable and spring-like double figures, there’s a suggestion that the southern half of the UK could be set to face further snowfall and sub-zero temperatures, as of the coming weekend!

Some sources contradict this. All I know for certain is that the wind continues to head or way from the east… Just as it did over a week ago now, when we saw the first significant snowfall for several years.

Wrington and Redhill

Sunday 14th January 2018

We’re in to March, at the time of writing and I’ve managed to absently bypass this local outing from almost two-months earlier.

I’m going to be leading a walk in early April that starts in Wrington. I’ve been living in this village for over four-years now and have always had it in mind to do this… I’m currently in the position of looking to move (in the hope of finding a brighter and warmer flat) and feel a sense of urgency to get this ticked off the list.

#walk1000miles – December 2017

If you’ve been following my progress with the #walk1000miles challenge this year, you’ll know that I already completed the challenge (by a single mile) at the end of November.

For me, the pressure was off during December. I was free to walk as few or as many miles as I would choose; every weekend or not.

#walk1000miles – October 2017

Officially, I imagine we’re still in autumn. However, recent temperatures have suggested that winter isn’t very far away.

Then, there’s Daylight “Savings”… Where we actually lose an hour’s light in the evenings all because we live in a country that’s afraid of change (possibly). That alone will have an effect on my monthly miles.
