I agree Bridgedale Fully Engineered socks are superb (dont bother with the cheaper ones) or Thorlo Trekking (quite thick, so extra foot room required)
Personally I would avoid 1,000 and Smartwool. The 1,000 have never worked for me and the Smartwool soon lose their shape and the feet slide about inside them.

From what I have seen on St Sunday Crag today scrap your equipment list completely.

What you need are skimpy shorts which just cover your bottom. A low cut top that causes bruising to your chin as you shuffle down hill and flip-flops.

Go for it!


(Might go back up it tomorrow)

Will be setting off on Tuesday, early train and copying the (12 day) itinerary MarkDay posted a while back (probably a fairly typical itinerary). Unfortunately couldn't get my second camera body in time (unless I fancied forking out an extra 200 to get it at a normal retailer) and have been a bit rushed so will be a bit limited with the raising awareness stuff I wanted to do - I'll do that all again properly at a later date when I'm better organised.

Can't wait to eat some sausage rolls and pork pies again. I'm fairly sure the walking thing will outweigh eating unhealthy stuff.

Have a good one, it looks like the weather may hold for at least a few more days, though a bit breezy.

Depends on how many sausage rolls and pork pies you eat!
