A camp on Greenup edge,too meet the infamous James Boulter

A recent bad back/trapped nerve has slowed me down the past month,but when I heard the infamous James boulter was out for a camp,i quickly packed a sack up.Ive recently booked tickets to go to Northern Sweden next year so was keen to question James as it turned out 4 off us all met up for a camp on Greenup Edge



I met Lee at bottom of Dunmail and we had a walk up and over a few small peaks too Greenup Edge,we scouted out a dry spot,as its a wet old area and were pitched by 2-30 pm.Then we had a wander up onto Ulscarf summit and then sniffed out a good water source as we got closer to camp

Not long after we had got back to camp James friend Yuri turned up and sorted himself out a pitch followed an hour or so later by james who had already been out the night before too





















Sunset was a brief affair but did give some great light



























As we were all chatting at 8-30pm we all were shocked to see the biggest brightest shooting star any of us  had ever seen


The wind had a bit of a bite but nothing to bad and after we had all eaten we were all stood out chatting about camps,hills and Sweden.Think it was gone 9-30pm before we all sought out our shelters for another brew








Dawn came with a fresher wind and cooler temps not much colour but it turned into a beautiful morning














With my back still not happy me and Lee wandered back to our cars,being lucky enough to hear a stag roaring as we headed back down







 

Heres a link to short video I did


 
Thanks for looking,hoping to resume normal full walking routes again soon ...safe travels Peter and Oscar

A bad back and two nutty campers

 Some friends were staying up in the Northern Lakes,so I drove up and met them and we had a nice gentle walk over to Mosedale and then up to Lingy hut








Much brightness from the Crowthers





The night was clear,mostly but sady no Aurora.My back still yucking so I slept in the hut
































Chrissie and Geoffs and Pebbles and Islays home for the night


The morning dawned nice at a cool 4c














High pike was in cloud but soon cleared to give some nice views





                       Tango duo













 After a few very muddy fields towards the end we arrived at Geoff & Chrissies second home.A nice brew and beans on toast and I left them and the snoring girls....Hope to catch up with them again soon      Thanks for looking
