January 2010

New job is busy busy busy.

I still have some quality SOTA time, and have just earned a shed load of points by climbing Skiddaw LD-004 in full winter conditions. Pictures to follow shortly.

We still have plently of snow around in Yorkshire, and also in my occassional work QTH in GM land. Cant wait for the wx to change so I can bag a peak or two after work!

See you on a hilltop soon
