Looks like you had a great holiday, Richard. I've only really done one walking holiday on Skye and it was quite mind-blowing to climb the Black Cuillins in snow. I'm a little scared to return though you show there is a lot else to enjoy ..read more

Re: Washing Socks - Is Fabric Softener OK?

When I was a service engineer we were taught that fabric conditioner reduces the water absorbency of cotton. I have imparted that knowledge to my wife, who has never used fabric conditioner when washing towels, tea towels and bath mats. That aside, I wouldn't dream of putting my stinking, mud-caked walking socks filled with grass seeds and bits of heather in with the rest of the laundry! After every walk, every single item of clothing I wore, it's all synthetc with the exception of my loopstitch wool socks (my fleece and hat, if worn, get washed less frequently) goes in a 40C mixed load wash ..read more

Many years ago, I took on the mantle about socks being treated well. Even down to wearing a particular one for the right foot and one for the left. My wife in her wisdom just ignored all that malarkey and whenever they were found in the Alibaba basket threw them in the wash with all the other detritus. I also have learned to ignore all the washing destructions and just throw them in the wash along with all the other garments. My feet are still in relative good order, and certain brands survive the ignominy of shared washing if they are good quality socks to start with.! My one rule abo ..read more

Thursday morning and I parked in Ambleside and took the 516 bus to the head of Great Langdale. From here I began my walk to Keswick, taking in the summits of Crinkle Crags, Bowfell, Esk Pike, Allen Crags and Glaramara.  The journey was split by a camp close to High House Tarn on Allen Crags where I watched the solstice sun set behind Great Gable. Total distance: 35.14km Total Ascent: 2,037m Thanks for looking ? Thursday Morning, 20th June 2024… The next day ..read more

What a contrast between yesterday and today!     The former was the longest and most stressful day so far (since Minehead ) because of the ferrys and fording and bushwhacking and rough terrain.  Plus, it was grey and very windy.  But today was perfect weather and I had another great walking companion, a lady named Emma, whom I’ve crossed paths with two or three times this trip, but she’s always been faster than me so we never had time for a proper conversation.   Today we bumped into each other at the little convenience store in Inner Hope and we just walke ..read more
