I’ve been doing a bit of research.

Some of you will know that this Autumn’s cachepedition with Rob ‘n Sarah is to feature an activity not totally related to geocaching: We’re going to climb England’s highest mountain, Sca Fell. Our chosen route is one that we did the first half of at the end of last year’s trip, so we’ve got a bit of experience, and this year we’re going to be faster and fitter than then.

Or all in bed with swine flu, but that’s by the way.

Anyway, I’ve had a look at the route, and from the parking point at the bottom to the trig point on the summit is 4.2 miles. 4.2 miles! This a bit less than twice the distance I walk to work every morning, so we’ll have no trouble with that at all.

There’s always the 2800 feet we have to climb – which is rather more than I do on my walk to work, even when the escalators at Waterloo aren’t working – but we’ll deal with that when we come to it.
