Box: 111698

I am a Male Walker, in my early 50s, based near Solihull.

My Message: I have just started walking and just love it. I have walked the Malverns a few times, Kinder Scout and some of the simpler trails around the Lake District. I would love to be a bit more adventurous and it would be great to find a walking partner. I am reasonably fit, but a novice at map reading! I do however have a good sense of direction which always helps me. Happy to walk weekends and during the week. Any takers?

I am a Male Walker, in my mid 70s, based near Berkhamsted.

My Message: Hi, I am Nick and a keen walker in my seventies but don't feel it! Would appreciate a bit of female company on my trips out. I am a photographer and keen on the countryside and all it has to offer. Lucky enough to live close to it from my home in Berkhamsted. So if you fancy a stroll or a longer walk it would be great to hear from you.

I have some speech difficulties just expressing what I'd like to say but with a bit of patience this doesn't stop me from having and enjoying a good conversation. I walk regularly weekdays and weekends but would like to share this and find new places to walk with a companion.

I am a Male Walker, in my early 60s, based near Penrith.

My Message: Hi, I am an experienced hill walker living near Penrith. I have walked in Europe, America and throughout the British Isles. My hill walking started in The Lakes and having recently moved into the National Park I am now renewing my memories of these iconic hills. My lifelong passion are the hills of Scotland having climbed over 250 Munros. That said, I enjoy walking in all wild areas and like to take time to appreciate the views and wildlife. A great day on the hill followed by a pub is my ideal day. If that appeals then please get in contact.

Box: 111916

I am a Male Walker, in my late 50s, based near Southampton.

My Message: Hello! I'm a 58 year old man looking a female walking companion. I live in Southampton and particularly enjoy walking in Hampshire and the New Forest. I'm very fit and have a youthful outlook on life. Apart from walking I also enjoy sailing, tennis and cycling and am passionate about wildlife and nature. I work freelance and so can be quite flexible as to when I take time off. My children are grown up and I have no other responsibilities or commitments. I'm very chatty and people tell me I make good company.

Box: 111915

I am a Male Walker, in my mid 60s, based near Aylesbury.

My Message: Hello,

I am retired and single with plenty of time to indulge my love of walking. I walk sometimes alone and sometimes with local walking groups. I would very much like to expand on that by finding a new friend or friends to walk with on a one to one basis. I live in Aylesbury so the Chilterns are on my doorstep but I am more than happy to try other areas. Recent walking holidays were in Wales and Yorkshire and I was born and raised near the Lake District.

I am more interested in spending time in the outdoors, stopping to enjoy the views and ending in a pub, than in ticking off particular challenges. A typical walk for me would be between 6 and 12 miles. More than that on a good day!

If that sounds good to you drop me a line and we can take it from there.

Brian

I am a 58 year old self-employed female and reasonably fit, walking every day with my lovely, very well behaved dog. I will consider most areas to walk but would prefer somewhere local for regular walks. I am not a mountaineer but equally don't enjoy sauntering. Something in between is ideal.

Box: 111881

I am a Female Walker, in my early 70s, based near Bolton.

My Message: Am a late in life transgender female currently in transition. Hope that doesn't put you off.

I walk about 1 and a half miles each morning with my dogs before breakfast plus other walks plus mountain bike rides and competitions. Wednesday evenings and Thursday mornings are taken by voluntary work with Wheels for All in Bolton. Some weekends am committed to helping trail running events.

In my former life, have been an outdoor instructor, Orienteer (on foot and mountain bike), teacher and cycle retailer. Enjoy the countryside, food and wine. Feel younger than my numerical age though hormone treatment has reduced strength.

Perhaps my past dysphoria was a factor in being uncomfortable in a group - not been happy within a large walking group. Getting better riding with the Saddleworth Rough Stuff Cycling group.

Hoping to find female companions, preferably dog friendly, to share my walks.

My Message: Your Message
Hi. I'm new to South Devon and love to walk! My trusty Shetland sheepdog is my constant companion. I'm hardy but not very fast. But I love company, a cuppa and good conversation! I'm only interested in making friends, nothing more. Timewise, I am very flexible so happy to do weekdays around the local area or Dartmoor or further afield. I'm a liberal thinker, an ex-academic, interested in the arts, travel, politics and culture, anything funny and engaging. I also play the violin badly, but don't worry, it doesn't come out with me! I love the great outdoors and fresh air.

I am a Female Walker, in my early 50s, based near Preston.

My Message: Hello there........ I live in PRESTON and I'm looking for male/ female/group walking companions.
I used to walk every weekend a couple of years ago and have managed to tick off over 50 of the wainwrights plus many other challenging walks however my fitness levels are not what they used to be and I would like to change that !

So I am looking for like minded walkers who are happy to walk at a reasonable pace, like to laugh and enjoy a good chat but at the same time feel comfortable with silence, particularly in the peace and quiet of the countryside.

I drive, I am reliable, and I'm available Saturday's and some Sunday's as I have just joined a walking group that meets every altenate sunday.

My sense of direction is not great but if I'm really observant I can get by and I'm looking at buying a GPS unit.

I prefer the lakes but I'm happy to do more local short walks too. Preferred level is about 10 miles with ascents between 1000 - 2000ft.

I am a Female Walker, in my early 60s, based near Liss, Hants.

My Message: Hi there,
I am Cheryl, new to the site and still trying to find my way around.
I have a young and positive outlook on life and am told I look a lot younger. If I could engage in lots of long walks I would, but I have osteoarthritis which hinders that. I am a Holistic Therapist and have managed to stay away from pain killers, preferring supplements and gentle exercise. I appreciate the many benefits of spending time in nature, and as I live in the South Downs National Park, I am never short of areas to explore. I'm never happier than when out for country strolls with a friend, sometimes stopping off for a picnic, or coffee at a nearby pub. I am looking for male/female company interested in 'relaxed' walks where we can enjoy the fresh air, chat and take in the surrounding beauty, and would love to hear from anyone who feels the same. I once joined a group walk, but didn't enjoy it and much prefer one to one company. I have only listed local walking areas, but am not adverse to trying others. Looking forward to hearing from you!

I am a Male Walker, in my early 70s, based near Lowestoft And Weymouth.

My Message: Newly retired and desperate to get out and see more of the country, I love travel and get away when I can but a little local knowledge is always welcome to find the best walks. I love dramatic scenery and there's not a lot in Suffolk, I have a little campervan which is a bit basic but I'm an expert camper, as I spend most of my time away out walking it suits me fine and gives me freedom, my family mostly live in Dorset and I am there quite often, I've just returned from walking round the Lizard Peninsular which was great

Box: 81835

I am a Female Walker, in my early 60s, based near Southport.

My Message: I would love to hear from local walkers/hikers.

Hi, I'm a happy, independent woman. I'm slim and fit and intend to stay that way!. I love driving particularly on the continent and I am happy to travel in the UK in search of a good walk. I'm a keen walker with many other interests including travel (preferably off the beaten track). I recently visited Siberia and China and got the 'bug' for more far-flung places. I have walked in Southern France and Nothern Spain.
La Gomera, a couple of years ago, was a great location to walk/hike in. As was the beautiful island of Crete last year. However, there are still plenty of stunning places in our own country I have yet to explore. I particularly love walking in Snowdonia. I did Snowdon via Crib Goch a while ago and very much enjoyed that experience. Also the magestic,Tryfan is a favourite. But in my book, any walk, long or short hard or not so, in congenial company, is a walk well worth doing.

I would love to hear from male fellow walkers who enjoy the great outdoors, a laugh along the way and of course, well earned pint after!

UPDATE... 2014. Hiking in spring time in Cabo De Gata Southern Spain. August 2014. Avoiding wild bears while in the Sayan mountains in Southern Siberia.....Northern Spain, Italy....just a few of the highlights of 2014. Intending to cap that in 2017 ( ambitious, maybe! )

Christine.
