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!

A drift away from brevity?

17th May 2010

Though sunny evenings were tempting, this past weekend has been one spent doing other things at home. Getting some trip reports out of the way were among those and the one on a recent trip to the Scottish Borders had me looking at entries from the early days of this blog. What struck me was how eerily brief they were. One even had more details on travel and accommodation than the actual walking!

Satisfyingly, it didn't take me too long to start addressing the balance and putting the outdoors wanderings on centre stage. Saying that, more water had to pass under the proverbial bridge until the travel pieces really got sidelined. Still, seeing the way that things have developed makes me wonder how it is that they went the way that they did. Encouragement from regular readers must have had something to with as well as reading the accounts shared by others. All that must have made me think that I could say more and the result is what you see today. There is one nagging thought though: do I need to watch how long I make these things? It's something that I'll keep in mind from this point forward.
