Hi guys. Tonight I am having a lovely time as a guest of one of my walking forum friends and his wife at Settle. They have very kindly given me a place to lay my weary body, which is very welcome as I have spent the day climbing a mountain. Pen-y-gent is 2277 feet high and I climbed every step of the way today. The signal is not so good here, so I will load the photo's tomorrow night. Thank you for your comments, I'll catch you tomorrow.
Hello, I am a 72 year old retired lorry driver. After trucking for 32 years I'd had enough, went part time when I was in my mid 50's and stopped altogether when I reached 60. Yippeeee, now I am free to do as I like. I live with three cats, I am very careful with my spending, only buying what I need. I have no qualms about buying second hand from car boot sales and charity shops, and getting free stuff from skip diving. Money saved is put towards holidays, a decent car, and days out. I love life, and it needn't cost a fortune to enjoy it.
1000 mile challenge 2020
We start our sixth year of the 1000 mile walking challenge on the 1st of January. Members of the International Walking Group will need to report in on the 1st of every month with their own mileage. If you feel that 1000 miles is too much for you, make up your own challenge. Any walking is better than no walking. The aim is to improve our health and fitness. Remember, you need to allocate time to do this, going for the odd ramble when you feel like it is not really enough. Walk fast, walk with a purpose.
Onward we go. Let's work hard to keep in good shape.
