Welcome to 2011

I have been away from my blog for a couple of weeks. Unfortunately I felt pretty rough over the Christmas period and had no energy during this period, so the much awaited Christmas backpack did not materialise. I am now pretty much on the mend, just in time to start back at work today 😦

I was able to go for a short walk in the Wolds, while the snow was about and just as it was finally melting away after 5 weeks on the ground at home, I awoke to more snow this morning.

Snow again !

I will be reporting on a few new purchases shortly including the SPOT2 messenger, which I have had on test for about a month now and Kahtoola Mountain snowshoes which I have tested while the snow was about.

I am looking to get a trip in this weekend coming, should everything work out.

All the best for 2011

    Happy New Year Mark and all the best for 2011.
    Actually I don’t think you missed any good spells of weather over Xmas, speaking of which, the forecast for this coming Friday onwards looks grim to say the least.

  5. Geoff – I am hoping to do an overnight this weekend – not sure how good the weather will be. There may be a brief window on Saturday, but I am keeping my eye on it See what MWIS say tonight.

    Happy New Year Mark! I think that everyone has had a bug over Xmas period I felt bloody rotten for a good week or so and also got better just in time for work. Hope you get out soon.

  7. James – Happy New Year to you. I still seem to be tired. Off to the gym tonight, which I have not been to for about a month with Christmas and the Snow. Going to see the PT there for a progress update – I don’t think I will impress him 🙂

    Thanks Mark, I’m fine. Waiting eagerly for the spring 🙂 We’ve already had some milder weather (+ degrees occassionally -> very icy!) and the days are getting longer.
