So, we are sorry but in future if you need a refund it will be your payment less PayPal’s take.
Despite the weather the views on this day were spectacular and made the more memorable by the effort required by the walkers to gain the ridges and summit. Well done all 🙂
This is a copy of a post lifted from the old Wales Outdoors blog site. It’s an attack on adventure activity provision in Wales, in particular the dangerous delivery of gorge walking witnessed by Wales Outdoors staff and peer group instructors. Andy campaigned for years within the industry but in the end lost the battle, the large companies having economic power and so an ability to influence policy with the authorities and tourism bodies. This is a key reason for leaving the industry. Andy did not want to be associated with such delivery any longer…
Andy has yearly insurance with iCarHire Insurance and this seems to do the job, even for car hire in Iceland! It’s Europe wide cover and when the virus is over and you can plan on getting away again do have a look and save yourself some cash…
Graham was out and about on his home turf, a walk near Abercrave, on a damp and windy day, and delivering his very much loved foraging and Batman’s cave walk.
When researching dipping my toes into being a cyclist again I was, following the changing nature of cardiff and it’s car criminality as well as knowledge that every friend that had owned a bike had had a bike stolen, I was concerned about having my new and shiny bike stolen.
Given the advice that peak virus will not be with us until mid May, when 95% of all infections will likely be taking place, it would seem sensible to assume that the Corona Virus will be disrupting our society until the end of August.
Wales Outdoors will not give refunds for a place or places on any scheduled walks. We hope you understand and that you support the viability of a small local business.
So, until we get clear and sensible advice and until cafes and bars are ordered closed we’ll be delivering guided walks in the Great Outdoors every Saturday and Sunday and sometimes during the week too 🙂
THE MONDAY MOAN – A once a week spot for us to moan about the stuff that perhaps we should all be moaning about that little bit more…
Following a day on the hill walking the 2000 footers of Fforest Fawr and being battered by a storm with winds of up to 50mph we were happy to be in sunshine and in the valleys of the waterfalls area of the Brecon Beacons National Park.
It followed what feels like months of torrential rain and very high winds and was the day prior to the peak of the bad weather, Storm Dennis, on the very next day. And so it was with some trepidation that Andy met a hardy group of walkers at Blaen Llia Car Park, newly refurbished for logging and open for walkers.
Just about, as far as we have come across, the best resource for recording all of those hills you’ve been to the top of.
But maybe, just maybe I won’t try again. Maybe I’ll just avoid the big tech and take a financial hit but in the long run have an easier life. And that’s what my punk brain is saying to me. ‘Fuck Them!’ is what I am hearing…
What a fine walk in horrendous weather with a full group of parents and kids – well done for getting out and about with us!
We had a booking for two people for the Classic Pen y Fan walk due to have been delivered a couple of weekends ago but cancelled as it was scheduled to take place at the height of the damage being delivered by Storm Dennis.
