Not going to be in a fit state for this. Enjoy, I'll try for the next one.

Can't do it, I'm afraid.  Working till 9pm the night before and catching a train to Wales on the 28th, early.  I hope there are more of these in the future, I miss everyone.

Pick a date for a weekend somewhere and I'll try and get the cats herded!

I think Alison (Littlewheel OTP) might be joining us, but if she dies I think she will be in her camper van with her small dog. But I'm not 100% sure she's coming. There's also an outside chance that Peli & Woolly might be around, but due to various things, their decision will be a late one and would almost certainly be for part of one day only.

But 4 will work.

I've been working on a functional respiratory system, with some success, so I'm still coming.  Looks like it might be a bit cold (studs may be prudent?), but can't be any worse than it was at Tan Hill.

Well we could have gone cave dangling at Ingleton* but I don't think they do it in the winter. I don't have any studs, nobblies any good?

I think nobblies may be a good idea generally, if we're roughstuffing.

Tomorrow's forecast for Settle is for a lot of snow and the temperature ranging from 2°C to -1°C. I think you can safely say that on the tops it will be quite a bit colder, and probably snowier, than in the town.

It looks as though it will warm up for the weekend, with some nice heavy rain all day Saturday. Sunday should be sunny with a maximum of 3°C.

I will get my mountain bike out of the garage later today and give it a "once over". I will also be bringing walking boots & poles. I think that taking a bike onto the tops could be challenging in a way he haven't experienced before.

The forecast for Ingleborough looks a bit exciting, too.

Challenging weather is traditional, no?  At least snow and ice makes for better Rule 9 photos than 50mph wind.

Subject to Plantar Faciitis I am up for a bit of walking. Getting up Long Lane if snow covered would be a bit too exciting however. There is a 4.5 mile waterfall walk at Ingleton which looks quite interesting dunno if snow rules that out. I think I might even have some waterproof overtrousers somewhere. I really should think about a mountain bike one of these days. I have swopped out the tourers tyres to 35mm knobblies. Grid ref app for the phone methinks. I seem to remember a very pleasant and lower level section towards the end of a Simeon led ride crossing ancient bridges etc when we stayed at the Dalesbridge, which may make a pleasant walk, .

My knees weren't built for walking, particularly downhill. 

OTOH, I'm not arriving until Friday afternoon...

Which reminds me I need to swop out the pedals to provide platform and clips.

I don't think there is anything happening which should prevent us form getting there.

I suppose I'd better fix the puncture on the MTB & put some pedals on it.  Sorting out some suitably warm clothes might be an idea as well.

Yesterday I got the mountain bike out of the garage, rubbed the mould off the saddle, pumped the tyres up and went or a 5 mile ride. I think it might be prudent to lube the chain, but otherwise it's fine. What wasn't fine was the fact that my expensive sealskinz gloves were that useless at 5°C that when I returned my hands were painfully cold.

I was aware that somewhere amongst my possessions is a pair of thickly knitted motor cycle mitten inners. I reckon I've had them since I was about 18. I haven't ridden a motor bike since the winter of 1975-76. Yesterday evening I had a sort-of look for them to see if they still existed. They do, and they haven't been eaten by moths. I reckon they will help if I put them over the top of some thinsulates or something.

Positively balmy later in the week.
