After what feels like an eternity It’s finally time to dust down the old camping gear in the garage, check everything is ship-shape and head off for the fells of Cumbria and the adventure capital of The Lakes – Keswick.
Eight days of camping, hiking, scrambling and now kayaking beckon me, thanks in part to the latest edition to the outdoor fold of a new Seylor Kayak. I really can’t wait to get going especially after what feels like the longest and wettest winter ever imaginable over the last six months here in the UK.
With hopes of attempting Striding Edge on Helvellyn, The Corridor Route up Scafell Pike (if the weather holds) and various other assorted hikes and climbs plus a bit of MTB thrown in for good measure it looks like it could be shaping up to be a great opening start to the outdoor season for 2014.
Full trip reports, maps and photos etc upon my return so please stay tuned and check back on the site from time to time.
