TR Walking the Dragon (rambling, wordy) by Fran
On the hill opposite my house is a dragon. It hides itself away in summer, but in autumn and winter, when the larches have divested themselves of their greenery, the dragon, picked out in the darker green of what may be Sitka Spruce, is clearly visible. Ever since the beast on the hill was...

Hi, I have just returned from 3 weeks holiday in Cornwall and spent almost everyday walking different parts of the coast path as day walks.The problem I found was apart from the Lizard and Land`s End areas, circular walks were a pain to arrange. So mostly we retraced our steps which made the...

Confluence points by Adrian Tupper
Andy Mabbett wrote in news:obT9vZXkBeg : http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/magazine/3167312.stm I suppose it's no worse than any other form of walking by numbers. Talking of which, I have recently had a brilliant business idea.

TR October Day 28 by Paul Saunders
On the expedition weekend I realised that I hadn't photographed all the main waterfalls in my local area, which seemed a logical thing to do during the course of the month. It would be nice to produce a collection of "October Waterfalls" pictures, twelve in all (ten at Ystradfellte, plus nearby...

TR: High Point of Georgia, USA by Rob Milne
For something a little different. Had part of Friday of last week free, so ascended the highest point in the state of Georgia, USA. Brasstown Bald (that is the peaks name), is 4,784 ft, so about the same height as Ben Nevis. Not bad for a southern US state. The summit has a fire tower, viewing...

OT - Budget Colour Injet Printer Recommendation? by ste
Hi there, I'm looking to buy a new colour inkjet printer this week, does anyone have any recommendations? I would love to buy the Epson 2100 (520), as discussed in other threads, but I just can't afford that at the moment, or the Epson 950 (250+) either. :-( I'll be using the printer for...

Saturday 25th October We set off from Leeds, where I'd established base camp on a friends floor, around 8am and enjoyed an empty, frosty and hugely picturesque drive up the A65. Having made a customary stop at Booths in...

Lords Rake by Lee Hanton
Can anyone give me an update on the stone fall in Lords Rake, on Scafell, and whether it is safe. I haven't heard anything of it since last year. I am going to the Lakes next week, and if safe would be ascending this route.
