2500 Miles Oct Update

 

October has been a good month in some ways, not so great in others, I’ve walked a lot this month so one of my best month totals (any that cross the 200 mile mark is good right?), taken some nice photos, and had some AMAZING news (that could only be improved upon on Nov 17th).

2500 Miles Oct Update

 

I passed 2000 miles in October!! in fact on the 8th October I hit my 2000 mile mark, only 500 to go from that point.

Totals

October Total: 224.37
2017 Total: 2187.57
 

Donations

Things have slowed right up, at least for most of the month, and then a couple of new donations totalling £45 (plus gift aid) came in at the end of the month which were welcome arrivals, so thank you for that 🙂 I am now up to £335 for the year, so still £165 to go. You can help there by donating at My Donate.

Best Bits

Well let’s kick off with the AMAZING news. This blog has been shortlisted to win Outdoor Blog of the year with the Go Outdoors awards – you can read about that on We Have Been Nominated – or go vote for us at http://www.gooutdoors.co.uk/go-outdoors-awards​ (I’d love to win).
Walk wise I had a couple of interesting walks one from Buckingham to Milton Keynes across country, following the Ouse Valley Way, another being another canal walk, this time with Zoe and the little lady from Old Wolverton to Stoke Bruerne.
The not so great was a period of gloom that set in with me, one that I had to break by forcing myself out on a walk, even when the desire was not there – Reflecting Moods. Thankfully the walk broke my moods.

  1. Hi Ashley! Thanks to pass in my blog and I'm so happy to have discover yours. I've been in Milton Keys something like 6 times because I worked long time for there F1 in the catering of redbull and Pirelli. Now I quit that job but I still remember the never-end green hills, the old villages, castles and breathtaking views around there. I love my area because I love to trek in the Dolomites but you are so lucky to live in an amazing area like yours. Happy to have find a new outdoor friend! Did you never been in Italy for outdoors?
