Just used the last of Christmas gift money (voucher for Go Outdoors) … Added a bit of cash and I’m now the proud owner of a pair of shiny new walking poles …
Make : Leki
Model : Trail – Superstrongseries
… German engineering on the blurb, made in Czech Republic on the poles themselves …. AND …. I’m going walkies in the Shropshire Hills with friends from The Coventry CHA Rambling Club, tomorrow so they’re likely to be less shiny by the end of the week-end 🙂
I’m informed we are “doing” Earl’s Hill and Oak Hill near Pontesbury, south-west of Shrewsbury and north of the area containing The Stiperstones and The long Mynd.
Weather-forecast, From the BBC web site =
Rather cloudy with some patchy rain possible in places. Persistent, and at times, heavy rain will push in from the west from mid afternoon, accompanied by strong winds.
And this is mirrored by The Met Office Web Site too, with 80% chance of heavy rain during the afternoon.
So the end of winter is looking pretty much the same as what’s been going on for the last few months – RAIN – AGAIN ! … but let’s hope they’re wrong.
Still, looking forward to being in The great Outdoors come rain or shine 🙂
