Only 2 weeks to go!

Well in 2 weeks time we will be on the road, which road we don´t know as the rain is causing us some worries!

The van came back yesterday from the signwriters, -Thanks Chris and Teresa she looks great!

Scottish Mountain Rescue donations will soon be able to be made through -

The Home page on the main website will be updated over the next few days.

The weather is still causing concern, when will it stop raining seems to be all we are saying at the moment.

Simon has now finished plotting all the routes etc and the total miles in the UK to drive is just under 3,000. But, that depends how many times we have to drive up and down to places due to the weather!

We leave Spain in only 3 days time so things are starting to be packed, we will be taking a small break with friends who live in the South of France. Lets hope we can relax and pray for it to stop raining in Great Britain.

Only three weeks to go!!!

Thats right three weeks and we will be on the road.

The British weather is causing concern at the moment, but lets hope that all the rain falls NOW and we are lucky.

We have a new Team Member on board - Simon Fisher.

Simon has taken the role of Logistics Manager and having planned our previous trips to the Alps and Russia he really is "The" man for the job! Si has spent the last week plotting the routes, carparks, even service stations with wifi into his laptop.

We should be able to publicise some sort of itinery in 2 weeks time so people can start to plan when and where to meet us.

Only 5 Weeks to go!

We only have 5 weeks to go and things are starting to get a bit frantic in the Hard Rock Office! (Sun shining outside making it hard to stay on the PC and phone all Day).

We are starting to think hard about the schedule for these 60 climbs. The only fixed thing at the moment is the start date and place - Chedder Gorge.

Then it will be the weather that decides which area we go to next!

It would make sense to go North and tick off the routes as we go, but life is never that easy - Don´t forget the bird bans in place and the ferry crossings needed at the busiest time of the year - we are in for a fun time!

If the weather has been kind then at the moment this is the plan.

Chedder - North Wales - Lakes - Scotland mainland - Old man of Hoy - Scotland main land - Skye - Isle of Harris - Scotland mainland - Arran - Yorkshire - North Wales - Peak District - South West.
