Walk 22: Blea(ve) It or Not

Blea Moor from Ribblehead: It only seemed like a few weeks since we were at Ribblehead to finish our Yorkshire tops challenge, but it had been nearly five months. We prepared for the off in thick mist and things weren’t looking too clever weather wise. The little bit of rain we had on the journey had stopped and the forecast was for a dry day but it didn’t look like we would get to see much of the surrounding scenery.

However this was not the case when the alarm went off and I had to get up.

Walk 18: Yorkshire Tops…. Done!

Whernside from Ribblehead: And so the day had arrived. Today would be the day that five of the Rambling Badgers would complete the Yorkshire tops tick list. Those five would be myself, Wu Tang, Beaky, Ramblo and last but by no means least, Sherpa G-String.
