So, the Christmas Season fast approaches....

What do you really want Santa to drop down your chimney?

A magic potion so that my rott and I can get back into the fells. I am still struggling very much with my knee and Teazle, my dog, had a cruciate repair last week. Christmas is going to be a pretty depressing time for us both.

Sorry Janice ... I don't want to hijack this thread, but could you tell me if there is parking at the end of the small road that leads south westish from Coniston and ends at the track to Walna Scar.

They say time's a great healer, so let's all hope that as the days soon start getting longer you both will start feeling better.

Hi Slowcoach, yes there is parking at Fell Gate which is at the start of the Walna Scar track. Just take the little steep road past Usher's Joinery on Station Road and keep going until you reach the gate. With all the recent flooding the parking area is a bit rough in parts, but it saves a steep climb on foot (unless you are aware of easier routes which of course I am). Enjoy !!!

A spoof remix of Tomy Blair at a party conference saying the words of that campaign song 'things can only get better'.

I really wanted the Mountain Equipment Kongur MRT jacket for crimbo. However, the desire to swan about in it up Scafell looking the business was offset by the worry that if ever I came a cropper and had to call out the MRT boys I'd have to put up with all the "Nice jackt mate" jibes I'd get while being stretchered down frown

They would probably be absolutely gobsmacked to come across a proper fell-walker wearing pukka walking gear actually on the fells. Berghaus, Rohan, Craghopper, Palamo etc etc by the hundreds in the streets of Keswick, Ambleside and Conistone. Out on the fells? Trainers, holey jeans and pacamacs. And that's just the sheep!

Re: Christmas prezzies - 12/12/09 08:31 PM

Have to admit last time I was in the Lakes in November everyone in Ambleside was dripping in North Face, Paramo and Rab, but there was nary a soul up on the tops... go figure.

In respect of Wainwright and to keep his traditions on the Coast to Coast path surely you should do the walk in a raincoat.

have tricker and odin got some sort of double act going on here??

i suspect they are one and the same... alter egos...tricker the 'mag' and odin the 'mage'....joined as 'magwitch'

Re: Christmas prezzies - 13/12/09 10:29 PM

Odin here!

I'm having a bad day today I'm afraid. A nice sunny forecast developed into a miserable wet day and I was working out in a remote area.

I misunderstood RT's post. I thought that vest and pants were being used as nouns .... hence my response. I now realise "pants" is used as a verb. Humble apologies!

PS Hello .... we must both be posting together. How friendly.

Nobody in a right mind would think of me as Odin
Thor! Yes.
I have been able to make Thunder for years.

If you're Thor you should try .......... (no, even I can't bring myself to carry on this old one)

I wouldn't mind Santa dropping Julia Bradbury down my chimney. She could then tell me how she walks the Coast to Coast without breaking a sweat or getting a hair out of place!
Wooooo! Some people got it all...huh!

I'd be doing a bit more than asking her mundane questions tbh.

congrats to lounge lizard on his 2000th post, still waiting for an interesting one mind.

That's a mite unfair on the poor chap. He did, in fact, make one highly thought provoking and relevant post (about number 235 I believe). Unfortunately, it was so motivational that everyone kept on at him to make another inspirational one. This became so wearing that he decided against making another.

alas poor LL we knew him well.
We shall miss his you tube ing.
They say: when you reach 2000 posts you must give yourself to the hillside.
Some say: He hears better than a bat,and that his bootys were made for walking and no one knows his real name.
All we know is; He is the Lounge Lizard.

Personally though, I've never kippled!

So, are you saying you're not a proper walker until you've walked the Coast to Coast in your vest and pants?
