    Do you two prefer a one-way or a circular?

    Incidentally, the forecast looks great for Sunday - maybe that can tempt a few more out?

    We'll be sat in Pizza Hut for much of the afternoon, gazing out the window thinking of you guys, while a gaggle of 12-13 year-olds cause mayhem around us
    Have a good 'un

    I would have been interested in my first OM meet after 15 years on here, but as I've got a few days in the Lakes I'll be bimbling over the Coniston Fells.

    Hope you're right about the weather Dave!

    Well, alas for your trip, its only Sunday that's due to be properly nice. Sunday on mwis/met office does look due to be pretty well perfect weather wise.

    Don't mind. Circular is generally easier though

    Looking good!

    Circular it is - democracy rules - and Dave is appointed Routemeister

    Air clarity VG on the met office too, and it being this time of year in Autumn you just *know* the sunlight will be nigh on perfect. A little bit of colour in the trees too.

    I suppose I have actually seen the met office put an E for air clarity once or twice.

    MWIS is nearly empty which is always a good sign

    Good walk thanks Dave and Skip


    My album - I haven't worked out how to get Flickr to use the geotag data in the photo, but Strava does

    We certainly did!

    Great weather for a first class high moorland walk. Bit like Kinder and Bleaklow but with more grass and less peat. A grand day out.

    Brilliant weather here, looks a nice walk too

    I was suffering from cold but so much walking earlier in the year it doesn't bother half so much!

    Great weather for a great walk - amazing how alive Black Hill is since they began their restoration work
