Gosh - two entries in two months! - I must be off work sick again.

Quite true actually, and I truly find these "bloggers" who manage to update daily inspirational.  Sure, I've got a lot to say (always have done) but I doubt it will be of interest to many.  Perhaps I might add another page to the site showcasing my other hobbies as I tend to drift from one to another.

My latest hobby, well not really a hobby, but more of a lifestyle change is walking - rambling to be more specific! I recently joined the local ramblers group in order to get fit and maintain strength and weightloss.  I'm not going to count losing weight as a hobby as that is just a necessary evil really, and unless you're into the occult and devil worship that can hardly be classed as a hobby or pastime!!

I have combined my hobbies - sometimes several of them at once!  As I now include Walking, birding, radio, photography and Sunderland Football Club (watching) more often than not I can include seeing birds on high ground whilst playing radio - often with splendid views for photography, for example.  Or how about a nice walk to a high point with a SOTA kit in my backpack.

Not sure where the footy fits in.  Perhaps my idea of trying to gain a bit of street-cred? - nah! not with Sunderland! - I would have had to come up with something a bit more convincing than that really....

Hi Steve,
I found your site whilst on TM1 looking for WAB info.
As for your rambling, have you considered Geocaching? I was finding myself walking a lot for both fitness and to keep my hound amused. For some reason, quite a lot of my 'caching friends are also Hams. We've already introduced 3 people in our ARS to it too.....

Anyways, my own ramble - did you ever get back into WAB square bashing?
