Lakes – First Time

It had been a long time coming and finally dates aligned lockdown had lifted allowing outdoor meetings and activity.

I have been talking to Peter Dixon for quite some time, he’s is very experienced and knows the Lakes exceptionally well. We had tried to meet up a few times in the past but never managed.

The plan was to meet at a layby just off the M6 and head out for a couple of days and overnight on Branstree where we would meet up with another mate for an evening of conversation and enjoying the view.

This trip showed me how unfit I really was and when I got home, I ordered an exercise bike and have been using it twice daily since. Whether its helped I do not know and only the next hill will tell 🙂

In total we completed 3 Wainwrights, 7 Birketts and a few others hills. The weather and scenery was unbelievable.
