    As mentioned in another thread, Dave and I are planning to walk right round Kinder Scout. If you fancy this route, get in touch but it won't be a meet as such - more a few mates getting together for a walk.

    The start point will probably be Edale and the total distance (including walk-in, ascent, descent and walk out) will be very roughly 16-17 miles

    We will do it once the daylight hours have drawn out a bit more. Suggested dates are Sunday 26 April or on Sunday May 10 (to avoid the crowds on the bank holiday weekend of 2, 3, 4 May)

    Interested people so far are me, Dave, Robert McLean and Jim Parkin

    Feel free to PM me for more info.

    Both dates suit you Dave or have you a preference?

    On 26 April sunrise is about 05.42 and sunset about 20.12 - about 14hours 30mins of full daylight although I don't envisage starting that early

    Taz and myself are interested, Skip, as I think you already know. Our main issue is traveling time/cost for a fairly long one day's walk...

    ... We'll in touch via this thread and PMs as arrangements get sorted

    pm sent.

    I'm not sure if you've already discussed this on the other thread but it might make a nice idea to stay over on the Saturday night.

    If people don't know Edale, there are 2 campsites in the centre of Edale and some others a bit of a walk away (all are cheap). Also, 2 decent pubs in the centre of the village that both do food and good beer. There's a small shop as well. Regular trains from Manchester and Sheffield.

    To keep it simple, one of the central campsites would be best and it might be possible to reserve a part of Fieldhead for a group.

    Coopers: big farmers fields, cars allowed on, quite slopey, facilities OK, Mr Cooper gets mixed reviews.

    Fieldhead: flat pitches on several small spaces, small car park which it is advisable to book onto (no cars next to tents), facilities ok, friendly (might be possible to book a field for a group)

    Much as I'd love to it clashes with my wife's birthday so if I did come she would most certainly clash with me! Take lots of pics though and make me jealous! Miko

    Would it be rude of me to observe that you're going to be hard pressed to circumnavigate Kinder next weekend unless it starts raining really hard right now and doesn't stop?
