Charlotte is away this week till Thursday on an adventure coarse with the Army Cadets, doing coast-steering, mountain biking, hiking etc .. in Snowdonia National Park.. at Capel Curig

Never heard of it until she told me she would be doing it this week .. had a vague idea but had to Google it.. looks scary to me.. :Eeek:


What a brilliant experience .. and fantastic time she will have.. she loves the Cadets..

will post photos if I get any on FB..

missing her already..

And a great character building exercise Jim. She will have a great time but if there's one thing you can say about the way the Cadets are run nowadays, she will be safe even when she is carrying out the more 'extreme' looking aspects of the course. Good on her and good on those who give of their time to provide the training. (y)

YesOTE="Bertie Bassett, post: 1370450, member: 32543"]NO reason why you shouldn't do it as long as you are reasonably fit ...............see below and on some of the most beautiful coastline in Wales.....Go for it!

I thought it was going to be you driving the new van round all the coastline Jim :)

that would be a great trip.. have thought about it a few times.. maybe one day .. also heard of people doing it in stages over a few years..

just checked the distance.. just over 11,000 miles. who would have though that ..

from wiki,,, the Ordnance Survey, records the coastline of the main island, Great Britain, as 11,072.76 miles rounding to 11,073 miles (17,820 km).

Get a TV company to sponsor you and you could be the new Neil Oliver, Jim. You've got a start with the accent :)

It would certainly make a good series of programmes for one of the many free channels needing to fill broadcast time Jim. Canal travel seems to be up there at the moment.
