I figured out why I couldn’t get my cooking unit to work during my garden camp… https://planetpaul.blog/2021/05/22/garden-camping/ It was because the unit was a screw on but the gas can a push/click on. What an idiot! It’s been that long since I went camping that it’s hard to believe. There seems to be a shortageContinue reading “I’ve Got Gas!”
On Saturday, my friend and I walked the Yorkshire Three Peaks! The three peaks in question are Pennyghent, Whernside and Ingleborough. The mountains (Not hills!) are between 694 and 736 metres (About 2,220-2,400 feet). The 24.5 mile route also features stunning views of Ribblehead Viaduct, an active railway line. (Sorry, I don’t think that IContinue reading “Yorkshire Three Peaks… again!”
I think that the Eurovision Song Contest passed me by this weekend (I don’t have a TV!). I read that we got… 0 points, which doesn’t really tell us whether it was a good song or not! Anyway, let’s reminisce about the good times… Have a great week!
Whenever I get back to the car from a walk my phone battery is dead! I was a bit late to modern phones but my friend explained to me that the phone was using battery looking for a signal. I want my phone on so that I’m able to take photos (You know, incase IContinue reading “iWalk Pocket Battery”
Having advised that I was craving camping… https://planetpaul.blog/2021/05/18/craving-camping/ I went camping… in my garden! This was a more than worthwhile exercise. The camping that I’m practicing for is having to carry everything on my back. Even if that’s not really the case, I like to imagine that I’m on some epic wild hike! My oldContinue reading “Garden Camping”

I have two round neck tops that I wear when hiking that cost £9.99 from Mountain Warehouse… but have just bought the t-shirts pictured above! Like my other tops, the above are 100% polyester but crucially have both a collar and button up neck/chest area, ie: protection for the two areas that I get sunburned!Continue reading “Hiking T-Shirts”
After seemingly being destined to drop into Ligue 2, Les Canaris produced a stunning turnaround by winning three consecutive matches before taking on basement club Dijon in the penultimate round of games. What could possibly go wrong? Nothing… they won 4-0! Well, not quite nothing. The other teams flirting with relegation all managed to pickContinue reading “FC Nantes’ Survival Bid”
I’ve got an urge to go camping! I’ve done plenty of hiking but only a little multi-day hiking/camping… https://planetpaul.blog/2021/04/18/dingle-and-great-blasket-island/ My wife and I have been camping a few times but since having children, the opportunities haven’t been there. That’s not to say you can’t go camping with kids but our eldest daughter has some additionalContinue reading “Craving Camping!”
It’s time for something special! It’s time for a song that, if you need to just sit back for a while, distance yourself from the buzz, furore and chaos of life and just… chill, then let your ears and mind sooth to this… Staralfur by Sigur Ros ladies and gentlemen… gorgeous! Have a great week!
