Anyone fancy one? Thinking Macc, Peaks, Hope/Edale, Ladybower perhaps, it's all good stuff! 8)

Need to either be home (Manc) or at friends (blocking their shower with mud!) in New Mills fairly early in the afternoon, so would have to be an earlyish start and nothing too epic! :lol:

Apologies for the very impersonal PMs :oops:

Mr. Lee & Paul had a route in mind methinks...?

Why don't you show ped round Roman lakes or Mottram moor, There both easy road access to Manchester. Or set off from yours and over the Low to Compstall, Then to Roman Lakes and back via the canal ??

ooo
Kettle & hosepipe please! 8)

Assuming that's not a euphemism... :shock:

Do you have a trainset too...?

Off out for some beers (oh dear), but I guess it'd better be a fairly early start to get me back for the evening's festivities (and the very first batch of home made Scrumpy! 8) ), half9 for 10 at your's sound reasonable?

Anybody else? Is Kaya in or just being helpful? :wink: Sunshine is promised... 8)

I should probably ask your address too! :roll:

Actually, the less whippets the better - any more fat lads want to join us...? :oops:

Have to meet you somewhere in the middle sometime, if you can be away from the swell for that long :wink:
