Box No: 112025

I am a Female Walker, in my late 40s, based near Bourne.

My Message: Hi, Female walker looking to meet up with male/female kindred spirit. Reasonably experienced and fit I can walk week ends and midweek. Although the Peak district is nearest to me I am willing to travel to new walks in different areas. An inspiring, energetic hike, whether in the hills or following local footpaths with a packed lunch followed by a pub meal is a day well spent, and better shared. So if you're local or further a field and think we may get along, I look forward to hearing from you.

Box No: 111932

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

My Message: Hi, This summer I started walking the South West Coast Path (47 miles down, 583 to go!) I thoroughly enjoyed the walking and the beautiful scenery, and I'm hoping to complete a few more miles next year, but I need to develop my hill fitness... not easy to do whilst living in the flat lands of Essex! I'm looking for someone to tackle the hills with and, obviously, I'm going to have to travel, which isn't a problem. I'm not very tall so, despite going at a reasonable pace for me, I'm unable to match the stride length of anyone who prefers to march on at speed. I like to walk and talk, stop to take photos, and to marvel at the incredible views. Are you someone with good map-reading and navigational skills? Would you be happy to walk with me at my pace and understand that I'm actually walking pretty quickly for me? Do you enjoy a chat and a laugh? I work part-time so I'm available from Thursday to Monday and I'm keen to get out there as soon as possible. I love the sunshine and don't mind the cold (I walked in the Peak District in snowy November) but, I'm not so keen on rain - a bit of light drizzle is OK but if it's pouring down... I'd rather find a nice tearoom or pub. If you think you can share some hills with me, please get in touch. I'm also open to walks in counties and National Parks other than those listed. I look forward to hearing from you.

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

My Message: Hi I'm 58 interesting and genuine man looking for a friend to walk with to enjoy relaxing strolls or some exercise maybe a coffee or lunch along the way. I have had a stroke but doesn't stop me from enjoying a good walk or what I love doing the most and enjoying the outdoors.
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'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.

Box No: 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 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!

Box No: 111714

I am a Female Walker, in my mid 50s, based near Shaftesbury.

My Message: Hi, I'm married to a lovely man, but he doesn't like walking. I have set myself the target of walking the SW Coastal Path, and have completed the first 70 or so miles from Minehead, alone, but would much prefer to be with other(s), from a safety point of view and generally having company. I like to do 8-13 miles a day, and enjoy the occasional cuppa along the way/something stronger on completion maybe. I think I'm easy going, pretty bad at map reading (attending a course soon), have a sense of humour and enjoy a bit of a challenge. In the future, I would like to do many other National Trails, and am happy to find accommodation for longer stints away. My puppy may want to join in at some point, so would prefer a dog lover, but that's not a deal-breaker. Would be delighted to be contacted by men or women of any age and enjoy a pace of 2. 5-3. 5 miles per hour, according to terrain.

I am a Female Walker, in my mid 50s, based near Huddersfield.

My Message: Hi
My name's Kate and I'm really interested in improving my walking skills and seeing and enjoying much more of the outdoors, both at weekends and also when I'm free mostly at weekends but sometimes during the week. I'd really like to try new walks and challenges, beginning in the places I've mentioned. I would enjoy some company for this and to maybe have time to have a drink/coffee and chat with, at the end of a walk. I am very interested in meeting people to walk with who might introduce me to new walks, but in a low key, not too serious way. I hope to find folk who want to try regular outings for fun and adventure and to take in as much scenery as possible. Please get in touch if any of this this resonates with you. I shall look forward to hearing from you. Kate
