    Hello

    I'm trying to get from Kendal to Glenridding at the end of the month for a week's walking in the Lakes. The only problem is that all buses tend to stop running at around 5pm and i wont be arriving in kendal until 8pm (due to a 7 and a half hour bus journey from Bristol) I can't drive yet as im a student and cant afford to learn at the moment. Any help/suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thanks, Fran

    p.s if anyone HAPPENED to be going through that area, could you let me know please? x

    No worries! As I said before, felt I had to put that in here not just for your good self, but too for all the other young ladies out there that might get the same transport ideas from reading this OM thread. They have quite a long life these threads on the forum here you know!

    If you get a lift off someone from on here your biggest danger is getting bored to death hearing about the latest shiny things and how to make them lighter

    Why not stay in the YHA Kendal overnight then continue by public transport in the morning.

    It's also vital you find out their viewpoint on Paramo v GoreTex/eVent prior to accepting any offer

    I might be heading up there and would be able to give you a lift, but I don't know yet - I live in Lancaster, and tend to decide to head up there at the last minute (either the day before or the same morning).

    What day will you be there? If it's a Fri/Sat/Sun it's more likely I'll be around.

    Anyway, PM me if you like - at the end of the day, I am happy to use giving you and your mate a lift as an excuse for getting myself up there, if I'm not specifically planning toanyway.

    I don't talk about gear either, but I may bore you to death on other subjects - also, I hail fom down Bristol way (Wiltshire), so we could bore each other to death with West Country anecdotes... Give me a shout if you don't get anything sorted.
