Features

The Features section is an ever so exciting collection of thoughts and stuff on long distance walking.

Alternatively, it is where we shove all the stuff that simply doesn't fit anywhere else, like some sort of horrible leaking bucket.

Take your pick.

I recently retired yet another pair of hiking boots. I’d barely had them two years but in that time I reckon I’d done 800 miles in them, and done some pretty big stuff.

I recently went on a camping/walking trip to the Lake District. There will be some more blog posts on that, however before that it’s time to enjoy a Rambling Man first. First vlog. And first cup of tea.

“I know! I’ll create a walking site!” I said, and six months after registering the domain name, Rambling Man was finally born.

Looking for a dungeon? In Australia?

In August 2010, after doing it over several stages, we arrived back in Byrness with one intent. To finally finish the Pennine Way.

Dufton to Byrness – but not to Kirk Yetholm as planned
