Long time no speak (ok, so I only missed a week, but it feels like ages) - turns out summer is a pretty hectic time...
(And the WiFi in welsh fields is not quite what it's cut out to be.... Long story.)
What made me think it was a good idea to plan two fairly big adventures within 2 weeks of eachother? Bonkers.
At the end of August I'm going to cycle to the highest 3 peaks in Ireland on a tandem. Then I'm going to get home and walk all the tors on Dartmoor in one go for the Mountain Rescue team I'm in.
It would be easy if I wasn't trying to make something of it. I mean, I'm a huge advocate of just going on an adventure. You don't need much.
But, particularly for All The Tors, I've got route cards and gear sponsors and logistics to work out. I've got to put out press releases and liaise with people who'd like to be involved.
I am not complaining. It is entirely self-inflicted. I'm beginning to feel like walking 300 km is going to be the easy part!
So I guess I'm saying - I'm running around like a crazy person. If you've emailed me personally, I promise I'll reply to you as soon as I can. Thanks so much for being patient.
Also: Thanks so much to everyone who's supporting the magazine and sharing our messages however you can.
It makes it all the madness worth it.
