Outdoor Discoveries

What originally was a news section for the rest of the website soon became a place for me to write about human-powered wanderings in the countryside. Photography inspires me to get out there, mostly on foot these days, though cycling got me started. Musings on the wider context of outdoor activity complete the picture, so I hope that there is something of interest in all that you find here. Thank you for coming!

That trip report that was promised last week has been delayed by my main home PC developing the computing equivalent of engine trouble. The remedy is the computing equivalent of the putting in a new engine into a car and that’s as far as I am planning to go with the technical description on here. Suffice it to say that progress hasn’t been as smooth as I might have liked and I am getting to wonder if I somehow have managed to acquire an inverse Midas touch. An older machine has been pressed into service as an alternative and I have been grabbing bits and pieces like most of my digital photos, a process that involved mucking around with computer hardware using a screw driver. Now that I have decamped to some sort of stability, my mind can turn to crafting blog posts accompanied with photos and other more pleasant stuff. After all, there’s a bank holiday weekend ahead of us and who knows what it might offer. From the various forecasts, it’s unlikely to be as fantastic as it was in Scotland around the same time last year so it’ll be a matter of taking whatever chances are available. Last weekend was no stunner either and it allowed me to sort out a few things while popping for a local stroll round by Prestbury and Tytherington and continue the running in of my Meindls.
