2018 Annual Totals/Happy New Year

30 12 2018

I normally put happy Hogmanay in the title instead of New Year but, as I haven’t been to Scotland once this year 😦 I’ve changed back to English. A very poor year but I suppose that’s what you’d expect seeing as I had a hip replacement and a house move…

11 Wainwrights
4 Wainwright Outlying
5 Other (Lakes)
3 Other (rest of England – in reality, just Yorkshire Dales and Peak District)

All Wainwrights/Outlying Wainwrights done before – in fact, only 4 new peaks. Most hills were small (sub 2000 feet) apart from my one jaunt up the mighty Skiddaw (3054 feet) shortly before my hip op. I also did a biggish hill in the Yorkshire Dales on New Year’s Day with my ex climbing club – Great Whernside (2310 feet) – so the year got off to a good start – and then flopped!

Still, at least I’m out and about again now, although I’ve got a dire winter illness just now and am completely stone deaf and feeling awful for the last couple of weeks. I get it every winter and it generally lasts a couple of months at least so not much on the agenda in the near future. I’m definitely not a cold weather person!

Decent photos last month though of the lovely Skiddaw as per my earlier post…

Hope you all have a good 2019 and thanks for reading 🙂

Happy New Year Carol and best wishes for 2019. Even with your hip you have climbed more hills than me in 2018 as I seem to be coast walk, town and city bagging now.. And think of all the petrol you have saved.

I thought I would save petrol with not going up to Scotland every month but my 200 mile commute for my job each set of shifts has left my consumption exactly where it was unfortunately. Roll on retirement…

I have to say the winter’s been better so far – not as cold – but perhaps I shouldn’t speak too soon! Hope you have a great 2019

Thanks – I hope it goes better and I get something done. As soon as I could walk again after my hip op, I was madly planning again for next year so let’s hope I get some of my ambitions done.
