britain on foot, Diary, snowdon, wet weather, wild weekend -

Well we've discussed the right shots with the photographer, and apparently the Sunday Times are interested... We just need to get up the mountain!! Weather today just fine so far. The camp is half up and Outdoor People has it's first volunteer - 21 year old Philip being amazing.

20140509-054749 pm.jpg Although half way here he said "I miss wifi..."! Unfortunately given the forecast several of the wonderful families of first time campers from Hackney with kids under 6 are no longer coming. It would not be the best introduction! But though he's no longer coming here, the lovely Urvesh from Gujurati Rasoi of Dalston gave us an amazing curry to enjoy later. His son Jai I know was very much looking forward to his first trip - we will plan another very soon! So we will be a party of experienced teens and adults tomorrow - though at least one of my friends is new to mountain hiking, and a couple haven't done much. We have done our risk benefit assessments and have back up plans for if it's dire! This is the forecast...

They will know for sure I'd it's just too dangerous.. So we've got a mini projector loaded up with Project Wild Thing trailer, our PWT TShirts, our Outdoor People hats and waterproofs and cheese sandwiches. And the route has been chosen by 15 year old Phoebe, leading us as it's in celebration of National Children's Day UK!
