January in Wykeham Forest.

Another unusual month - mild and damp. Occasional frosts, and some lovely clear, bright days, wonderful for walking.

All my walking has been in and about Wykeham Forest since our wade in Rosedale at the beginning of the month, due to work and other stuff going on at weekends.

Firstly Freddie had to be transported, along with all his worldly goods, back to University. He was filled with enthusiasm about his upcoming exams.

Another weekend was taken up by a St. John's Activity First Aid course. The course was facilitated by a member of the Scarborough and Ryedale Mountain Rescue Team, partly in the North York Moors National Park HQ in Helmsley and partly on the moors near Sutton Bank. I'm not sure what the hill walkers around and about us thought about 12 mad First Aiders running about in nitrile gloves, bandages fake wounds and plastic sick. A great fun weekend, with like minded people, enhanced skills and a qualificaiton to boot. Thanks Ian!!

Setting off from Glen Feshie - it was chilly - before the sun had a chance to peep over the hills...  Off we go! Jim - Setting off near Auch...
