Careering Ahead... onwards and upwards!

Just had to postpone our group walk to Lewes (too wet!)... shame as we were all looking forward to striding out on the Downs after work and adding to our CTGF portfolio of activities!  Hoping for sun next Thursday!

Just to blow my own trumpet....I did manage some great (and very strenuous) walking over last weekend in the Lake District (what a glorious place, made all the better by the amazing weather!).  Conquered Skiddaw (3,054 feet) one day and then Cat Bells (1,480 feet) and High Spy (2,142 ft) the next day.  (Just to put this into context, Ditching Beacon is 800 feet).  Am now a Wainwright convert (see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Wainwrights) and managed to tick off 8 on this visit, only 206 to go!!!  Here's the motley crew on Catbells!  (only me in CTGF!)
