    All this talk of running's getting me out of breath and you don't need a camper van for that.

    So I thought how about a TLB walking club. I was going to say Hill walking as that's what I like best, but coast paths, river walks, it's all good.

    This is just a feeler thread for now as I haven't given thought to a good first venue.

    I see a typical weekend like this:
    Arrive Friday afternoon/evening for drinkies and a fire.
    Saturday walk 10 miles+ and evening meal in a pub.
    Sunday mahoosive fry-up and drift off home.

    Whaddya think? Anyone interested?

    Feel free to suggest a venue/walk/date. I'm up for anything unless it's too far away.

    Yes - are you going to organise the places we go or would you be open to suggestions ?

    i have a feeling it will peter out if the locations aren't varied countrywide .

    It's TLB - anything goes. Just gauging interest for now. If everyone who's interested is in Cornwall or Scotland, I won't be going anyway. lol

    Many random weekends would be the plan BB. Bit of Offa's Dyke for one maybe?

    A few of us are going up a couple of days before Springcamp and gonna do Helvellyn via Striding edge, maybe a few more peaks, I go walking quite a bit and the Woody you see wrecked at shows is just to keep my image up, I hate having to do it ;)

  12. Hey Zed & Dog, we're walking the coast path from Hunstanton to Cromer in June. Any recommendations regarding van friendly campsites and places to visit?

    There's a great site at Stiffkey.
    There's also a camper/teepee site somewhere - Brancaster? Dog will know.
    It's a good one for walking/camping as the coast hopper bus service will take you to wherever you like and walk back or vica versa. Some of the drivers are really funny - in a good way. :)
     
  14. Is be up for this.... Not done much walking but its something Paul really wants to get in to as he used to go with his dad as a kid x

    I love forests as mentioned before so if anyone knows of any good ones to explore I'm there xxx

  18. this is the reason we bought the van , but we usually set off saturday afternoon 1to2hr drive no more, pub meal e few pints
    then a 7-10 mile walk sunday morning , then back home at a reasonable time.
    We both work saturdays and find 1 night to be plenty of time to get a nice walk, a night in a pub and not too late home.
