Well done you two! :-)

I think that photo bomber Tony has a striking resemblance to Lou Macari,

Conrad, our local parkrun at Wythenshawe is mainly over soft ground so rather a slow course. And for those of us with a freak PB there's no incentive (or should that read 'ability') to beat that, though when fit I do aim for a 'benchmark' age related percentage - the percentage of the world record for your age group as compared with your time. I target 70% though I haven't managed that since my hamstring started to play up in September.

For Sue and me (and probably the vast majority of parkrunners), parkrun has become exactly what you suggest - a vehicle for getting some steady exercise, in our case preceded by a sociable half hour and followed by an hour or so with people who have become very good friends, in the cafe.

2017-12-14T09:31:56.126+00:00

Park runs seem to have appeared on the scene after I had stopped doing any running. There does seem to be quite a competitive feature about them whereas I would have thought they were more a vehicle for getting some steady exercise, but I know it is difficult to quell the urge to do a pb every time. Look after the knees if you are running on hard surfaces - get good cushioning.

Glad you managed to have company on such a nice day.

I spotted this tractor on a chilly walk near Miesbach (MB) last weekend, but failed to notice the special number plate - shame on me! Note also the snow patches - if I was there today the picture would be all white...

Thanks Alan - duly inserted into the text of the posting.

It’s a McCormack, international Farmall D 430 2 wheel drive from the 1950s I like the registration plate MB and AR, what a coincidence.

We were very lucky in that the cafe didn't object to Andrew flaunting his cake in front of everyone. We did get A Lot of Cake though.

'Too much cake'?

Surely not, that can never be!



It's like that here today!

2017-11-28T10:32:35.011+00:00

It's like that here today!

2017-11-28T09:17:02.091+00:00

Aye, I shall glad to be back - although I have to admit the weather here, at this time of the year, is very agreeable. Nearly every day is like an English summer day :-)

2017-11-28T08:53:52.129+00:00

See what you are missing, JJ! I think both Rick and I wanted to get back in time to do some afternoon jobs...

Zzzzz...!

2017-11-28T01:21:59.308+00:00

That looks a nice and interesting walk. Rick has a very good mate who lives very close to your route, I'm surprised he didn't cajole you into visiting him - you might have got a cuppa!

2017-11-23T14:56:42.227+00:00

We've not had a lot of sunshine Conrad. In fact the top picture was on a very dull day, but the colours seem to have shone through the gloom this year.

Today's breezes mean that the best of the colours are now from the rainbows, not the leaves.

Hope your op is going well...

2017-11-21T22:49:38.830+00:00

Brilliant. Even though I've been out and about a bit over the last week or two I seemed to have missed any of those bright autumn days.

2017-11-19T09:58:11.681+00:00

You can't really tell from the map. It's worth getting out there and having look. As far as I could see not a farmer's field in sight.

2017-11-12T18:23:06.421+00:00

Sorry Conrad, we didn't really see much of the 'Edge' except for the top of it. I didn't even realise it was a climbing venue.

Thanks for your comment, Alan. I agree with you about the photos, but we could be in a minority!

2017-11-12T17:36:16.858+00:00

I bet it was a good night with those two. I think your photos are far better though. Especially the old knackered blue Fordson major and the David Brown 588 under all that steelwork.

2017-11-12T15:58:22.159+00:00

I got a bit excited with the title. Burbage was one of our climbing venues in my Junior Hard days and I was anticipating photos of the crags, but whatever, an interesting and varied walk in excellent surroundings.



Wish I lived nearer.

It was an excellent production, we went on Friday evening and thoroughly enjoyed it.

Wonderful Martin. It’s great doing walks where there is so much industrial archeology to see and take in. Funnily enough I pass the Vitriol signal box at Chadderton when I get the train into Manchester. I had no idea what Vitriol was until last week.

Happy days eh Conrad. JJ has also been here recently and has a different 'Iron Man' story.

That brings back memories from my Welsh boundary walk in 2011, I camped at Llanbedrog; her's a snippet from my journal - 30th April 2011:

"...and marched on to this site in Llanbedrog. Once again a "brown sign" indicated camping which turned out to be erroneous. The lady told me they only had a licence for caravans and the council wanted £600 to change the sign. However I was alowed to camp."
