A Very (Nice Walk) in the Country [Mar. 10th, 2009|08:51 pm]

Spring is upon us, the flowers are blooming, the trees are doing whatever it is that they do...or maybe not quite yet, but they certainly will be in a few weeks - which is when I propose we go out for a bit of a walk.

The plan (if we have sufficient interest) - get a train out of London, a route/distance not too pricey and do a short walk from one of the many guidebooks now available. I have the Time Out one for instance, and the walks very in length from 3 to 12 miles or so. Perhaps stop off at a pub for lunch, and go for drinks/dinner/Radox baths as suits when we return to London.

If you fancy it, please indicate your interest here. Try and say any dates which are totally impossible for you as well. I'd be thinking 2/3 weeks time.

Sundays are normally when I've got the best chance of being free and my ideal walk length is five to six miles, depending on how hilly it is ;-)

would love to - alas, weekends are not good, so the only plausible time would be during the easter hols - tuesday, wednesday or thursday of the week after easter any good?

Dude, you really to start getting your weekends off. We could always do a walk in the Easter break, but for everyone else it's got to be weekends.

I like the idea of this and agree: Sundays are good. If hungover, usually.

This sounds great. I'll find out when I'm free or not tomorrow, but registering interest now...

So it's looking like Sundays are best at the moment...

How would the 29th suit people? Or the 22nd if everyone is mad keen.

Either is fine for me, but perhaps we should say the 22nd with the 29th as backup in case the very heavens open on the day? This is England in March after all.

Have you had any thoughts yet about where?

I think I would like this very much. I don't have much date-preference so will just keep an eye on thread.

I'd like to do this but I walk a bit slower than usual at the moment due to stretching ligaments so I might hold you people back. Also I can't do the 22nd so let's say if you go for it on the 29th than I'll come along.

I'd be okay with 29th - will pick one not to difficult.

Yes. This sounds brilliant.

Although: April better, and not weekend of 4th/5th; 11th/12th might be better. Have a lot of administrivia and moving to do between now and then.

Do you think you can do the 29th Tom?

Almost certainly not, given I'm moving house the day before. I might be able to, but not sure how far I'd be able to go; there is likely to be lots of Stuff I Need To Buy and if I don't unpack that weekend it's just going to all disappear into the week. Oh, fuck.

well, it could be done again at a later date. The walk, not the unpacking, I mean. At least I hope so, given that I'm not even in the country on the 29th...

Okay so generally I'm leaning towards the 29th...a 5 mile walk or so so everyone can come. I might switch this to email tomorrow as it's a bit easier to communicate there than an LJ thread.
