This is my blog devoted to outdoor pursuits. We are a family of six, with our oldest child being a grumpy teenager who does not wish to participate in family outings, so for the purposes of this blog we are essentially a family of five. I am currently a distance runner, cyclist, swimmer and hiker. I am hoping to add to that sailing and kayaking very soon, particularly when my children are old enough to participate in these sports.

I try to leave as much detail as possible such as maps and resources in order that others may replicate the excursions I enjoy, so have at it if you want to get stuck in. I am pretty experienced (a good few decades enjoying the outdoors) so I try also to comment on the challenges and difficulties involved in each outing, particularly hiking and any off road or trail sports so you know what you can manage.
