I'm now taking a weekend break from blogging as we'll be somewhere that I don't think will have wifi or a phone signal, or the opportunity to spend time blogging.

My second camp in 2017 was in Glen Etive, near sea level, at NN137459, after 22km and an early finish on my FWA (Fowl Weather Alternative) route as I chickened out of going up Beinn Trilleachan, a rocky peak with slippery slabs.A good spot with nearby water and nobody else around.

Up to 3 October, I recorded more than 467 (not)parkruns on consecutive days. On the advice of my physio, and with my injured foot taped up and feeling a bit better, I did number 468 today, at a walking pace in 47 minutes, on my usual course, soon passing the place where Baguley Brook goes under the confluence of Walton and Frieston Roads. Pictured above, this is a view from the starting point of a 5km route that I set out in this posting.
The canal near Timperley Bridge was in bright sunshine as I passed by 40 minutes later.

On a 27km 'lolipop' ride to the Throstles Nest Bridge, Eccles, Barton Swing Bridge, and the Bridgewater Canal, this was the view this afternoon along the deserted towpath, just a few yards from the Trafford Centre.
Most of the walks are based on those in Alex Kendall's Cicerone guides, Snowdonia North and Snowdonia South, so I'm Indexing them in line with the contents of those books, which places them roughly in a 'North to South' order.
