Fell walking and backpacking

We have been doing lots of walking over the last few weeks and are currently averaging about 60 miles a month. Most of these walks are in the evenings and we are enjoying the lighter nights. Most of the time it is just myself and Mark but Luke joined us over the bank holiday weekend when we went backpacking and camping. Mark and Luke had been planning it for a while and I really had no intention of joining them but in the end I was persuaded and enjoyed it more than I expected. The last time I went backpacking I hated it, which is why I haven't done it since but this time the weather was much better and I had a better rucksack so it was actually fun! The first day of the walk was fine but the second day was very hard work as the hill was very steep but we persevered and with the help of lucozade and glucose tablets we finally made it to the top!
