    Have tent...will travel.

    Conditions may dictate whether the Allak or the Nallo come along.

    Spent six days last Easter in the Lake District during a week of unbroken sunshine, which was great but can't expect the same weather two years running!

    Got to check what's on the cards weather wise actually, last time I saw an update, signal was for cooler and less settled conditions to replace the current HP dominated situation...

    Meanwhile, back on topic ...

    I'm off to the southwest car-camping over Easter - bit of coast path, bit of moorland, bit of doing sweet fuck all.

    Depending on weather we may go to Wales. I would like to go to Torridon, but I am not sure that I can persuade the rest of the family. My winter climbing technique of set off at 6pm, take it in turns to drive through the night and do the trip in one push doesn't seem wildly popular with the "Are we nearly there" contingent

    Planning to car camp near Dolgellau on Easter Sunday and then spend the following week walking some of the southern peaks in the National Park. Cadir Idris, Aran Fawddwy, Y Garn, Dyffwys and may be Rhinog Fawr and Fach.

    i'm just doing the last bit, Easter and August bank holiday are probably the worst times to go anywhere in Britain.

    The way I plan things... Easter is still a very long time away!

    In the past few years, for some reason, I've occasionally ended up on Spanish territory around Easter, such as Andalucia or Mallorca, and on top of all the great walking opportunities, it's also a time of wonderful cultural extravaganzas. Easter processions involve a cast of thousands, including pointy-hatted 'penitentes', drum bands, brass bands, and every civic and voluntary organisation in town, all in uniform. Sometimes there are fireworks too. Centre-piece of every procession are huge platforms bearing statues, carried on the shoulders of dozens of hefty blokes. I once had a balcony view of a procession from a hotel window at the end of a long trek. Channel-hopping through the TV in the room, there was wall-to-wall coverage of similar processions all over Spain, and the TV commentators were chattering away as if they were commenting at a horse-race!

    The trip to Belize is our annual family holiday and going at Easter makes best sense as July/August is into hurricane season.
    We are going so hubby can get in the diving he missed last year when he 'fell off' a mountain in NZ, tearing a large hole in his arm, -just 2 days before a pre-booked dive trip to Fiji. NZ doctors said no diving, and he didn't want to become shark fodder.
    This will be our last big trip abroad. Money won't stretch anymore.

    So come the summer tents and bothies will rule!! -probably mostly Cairngorms which we've neglected up until now.

    Making credit cards out of plastic was just plain wrong.

    They should have been made out of elastic!

    Well, I'm back to the Sierra Nevada in Spain. Big mountains to climb and warm rock!
