Unusually for me, November looks like it’s going to be rather busy in terms of hillwalking and meetings with hillwalkers and trips away and all that kinda stuff.
It starts tomorrow. For tomorrow, I’m off to Kielder again and I’m going to attempt to walk along the Border fence and, where this isn’t on the highest part of the Border ridge, I’ll try to walk along the ridge.
The plan is to visit Peel Fell, which appears to have an Israeli army observation post on the top, the Kielder Stone, which is off-ridge in some of the tussockiest tussocks you’ve ever tripped over, the Carlin Tooth, Carter Fell, Carter Bar and Hungry Law to Byrness. There will be a camp somewhere around half way and I have a bed booked at the Forest View hostel (seeing as they treated me so nicely last time I was there)
I intend to return to see if my car still has all it’s wheels by using the toll road and some footpaths.
In the meantime, there will be another short intermission and, as it’s halloween, I thought I would post up this short musical video which is vaguely relevant.
Its the Bonzo Dog Doo-dah band. Only it isn’t is it?
