Box: 109821

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.

Box: 110897

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.

Box: 108796

I am a Male Walker, in my mid 50s, based near Hinckley, Leics.

My Message: Hi, my names Paul and I'm looking for someone who is adventurous, fun and would like to go on short or long hikes. Short country walks to a country pub for food and drinks are as much my cup of tea as are the more challenging long distance trails.
I like taking photos and chatting with strangers along the way, generally having a laugh and enjoying the great outdoors. I'm currently trying my hand at landscape water colour painting if you can give me some tips? In return I can safely navigate you from A-B without fear of getting lost!
I can go walking almost any day of the week as my work is flexible, although I have to work a lot of weekend dates so weekdays would be best.
The Peak District is a big favourite of mine because it's close to home but love the Yorkshire Dales and the Lakes, but would walk anywhere new and interesting. Would be interested in walking in Italy as I've just got the guide books and it looks amazing!
So if you'd like to have your own sherpa, tour guide and some fun along the way drop me a line

I am a Male Walker, in my mid 30s, based near Lowestoft.

My name is Matt and I'm looking for hiking buddies.
I'm originally from Essex but moved to Lowestoft last year. I spent 5 years in Australia as an expedition leader and outdoor ed instructor. I have a massive passion for anything outdoorsy.
I enjoy longer hikes and love to wild camp. I'm looking to do the 3 peaks at some point but also very open to any other idea's.
since moving to Lowestoft I have been walking on my own. As much as the solitude is sometimes nice, I would much prefer a bit of company and banter.
Thanks for reading my add.
Happy hiking

Box: 111732

I am a Female Walker, in my late 50s, based near Ribchester.

My Message: Hi, Lesley here,
I'm out walking again after a major operation. I'm building up my stamina and am able to walk up to 14miles at present. I've previously walked all the Lake District summits, extensively in Snowdonia and Scotland and in my own neck of the woods, The Forest of Bowland as well as abroad. I've booked 2 walking holidays for later this summer. One to Exmoor, along the Devon coast and the other to the Derbyshire dales. I love being outdoors and although I love sunshine I'll walk in any weather if the mood takes me. I particularly love coast and ridge walking but rivers and woodlands are beautiful too.
I'm interested in wildlife and nature, family and friends, art and architecture, yoga and music. I cycle too!
I took early retirement from advisory teaching 2 years ago to project manage a property restoration.
Love to hear from you.

I am a Male Walker, in my mid 50s, based near Bettws, Hundred House.

My Message: My Free Spirited Walking legs are back in the zone of this Bohemian Ridge Walker...

How about yours ?
With Spirit from within who is Equally adventurous on Barefeet, MTB as a pair of well walked trekking boots...

Most Fri afternoons - week ends can found exploring the many routes of the Elan Valley or southern Cambrians- Walking Companions always welcome to discover new alternative routes - scrambles - experiences along the ridge-tops, canyons and ; hidden treasures of these mystical lands.


if you see me skipping along the ridge tops or clinging on to a side of a cliff with my camera and music in my soul just smile and laugh as you say hi.. love my solo walks but always open to sharing other souls light..
Life is about living with Passion and taking a few risks, sharing with friends & companions who value being at one with the ridge tops as the sun dances into another day with the moon overhead reflecting soulful smiles from below.

are you that female soul-mate companion to share new untold adventures and blank canvasses..

Smile & Laugh with natures gifts
