Went for a walk along the South Downs last weekend with my parents. Having previously brought you several large chalk horses, doof.me.uk now presents a giant chalk man! Bit awkward to find a good viewing angle from the top of the hill.
I went for an epic hike last Sunday in the Chilterns near Henley. I’m pondering applying for the London Marathon next year and as this was just shy of 25 miles I reckon that gives a firm 10 hour upper bound. Just need to repeat it again and again with increasing speed… One exciting event […]
I went for another walk on Saturday, this time through unexplored territory in Wiltshire. Caught a train to Bedwyn and then headed off through the Savernake Forest and then a really interesting (but windy!) ridge along the Pewsey Downs.
