Well good for you. I am fortunate enough to have a wife, who although has some health issues, understands that I have a passion for the outdoor things that I do, and the need to do them. I know too many guys who are hardly let out of their partners sight and two friends who would love to go on a multi day walk with me but daren't even mention the thought of it to their other half. I just don't think that is fair. Live and let live, we are not joined at the hip, we may be married or in a partnership, but we are all still very much individuals and as long as our responsibilities are taken care of, we all need a little occasional space.
Dave.

Welcome back to the world of walking Lofty smile As for partners being non too impressed with going out into the hills, it's not just guys who yearn to be out there. I just wish my husband loved the outdoors the same way I did. Ach well.
