What has OutdoorDuo done for me?

  Add a 'What has ...'

Hi, It's a great site and works well I have met someone indirectly as a result Cheers

I had email conversations with a few guys and all seemed lovely. I met up with someone from the site and have started seeing him and am very hopeful that I won't be needing Outdoor Duo again!

Found someone fab on Outdoor Duo!!Best £5 I’ve ever spent

Great site. Met someone very special. Thanks for your help.

Within a week on Outdoor Duo back in March 2017 ... one of my matches turned out to be my soul mate; and we are still happily together ... running, cycling, climbing, walking and planning new challenges

"Aye ...bare is the back of the brotherless man", as me hairy great-grandpa used howl nightly. Finally, an opportunity to don his sweaty vestments - he wasn't known as Urrggg the Unkempt for nowt."There is no bad weather, only bad clothing." The mead will not be shunned...and remember, boatless men stay tied to the land, but we of Viking stock run amok very afrayd...

I missed this last year and would like to come this time. August is busy for me but I might be able to make it. I will consult my diary and crystal ball. Will definitely bring the kayak if I'm coming.

jo_jo   on 11/01/17 @ 23:24 said:

This sounds like a brilliant weekend. I can't wait.��

Bionic Man   on 12/01/17 @ 11:54 said:

Its not a movie caderdris, its a real live event

JW   on 12/01/17 @ 21:03 said:

Hi Chris
We will be in the Lakes for our annual visit from Sat 12th for a week so hope to catch up with some of you guys. Guessing there will be a few walks posted to coincide with your Viking adventure.

Carpe Diem!   on 12/01/17 @ 22:43 said:

M3: awww lass, thah needs to study Viking folklore and poetry or thah stay on board could be ugly an' short-lived. They're a vile, uncouth bunch o' reprobates on this trip an' you never turn yuh back or you won't have a back. Captain Jack Sparrow? His ship was like a Sunday School picnic compared to what's a-comin' to Ambleside...quite a few of us try and book into the hostel there btw...(but don't mention the Vikings...I almost did and think I got away with it) And we never pay a penny...

Lazlo Woodbine   on 13/01/17 @ 15:30 said:

What is the nearest YHA?

Bionic Man   on 13/01/17 @ 15:45 said:

Hello LW, details of the YHA are on the invite. Ambleside YHA is the length of a longboat from the lake ��

Carpe Diem!   on 13/01/17 @ 23:17 said:

M3: is a good hostel with great staff. Some of us go for the whole week, others just the weekend, while others drop in and out. If you're staying a few nights, the hostel does have some single rooms but you have to book early!

Lazlo Woodbine   on 14/01/17 @ 20:19 said:

Is rape and pillage included? I haven't pillaged Waitrose in years.

Lazlo Woodbine   on 14/01/17 @ 20:26 said:

Seriously, any people out there want to book a room. There are rooms for 2,4 and 6 people. Some of the 4 and 6 bed rooms have en suite. I prefer that to sharing a dormitory. Last time I shared a dormitory someone pinched my bed. It also works out slightly cheaper.

Rourky   on 14/01/17 @ 22:14 said:

Looking forward to yet another sailing jolly with my northern buddies...... more Northern soul needed this year, i need to learn some extra shapes to throw on the dancefloor

Tracy (no 'e'!)   on 15/01/17 @ 7:47 said:

Yay! If poss can I come on the Sunday boat as I won't be able to come up til the Friday. I can feel my Viking ancestry starting to stir!

Spring   on 15/01/17 @ 11:09 said:

So happy you are all coming up to the best playground on earth again! Looking forward to joining you all for the non-sailing adventures!

Jill18   on 15/01/17 @ 15:41 said:

Northern that's my speciality Clive....What shape do you want to ����

Carpe Diem!   on 15/01/17 @ 19:47 said:

Jill18: my dance lessons will reap their just desserts ...

Rourky   on 15/01/17 @ 20:29 said:

Suz......i think youll find the best playground on earth is over here in Gods country as you very well know young lady.
Jill.....this years shape is moving on from sack of spuds so the worlds me oyster this summer.
John....we've a dance mat for you mate.....its a bit like twister but with footprints so you can do the oaky cokey......

Tracy (no 'e'!)   on 16/01/17 @ 11:13 said:

Can't follow the dance thread with anything witty, so I'll just ask what I wanted to ask....I'm going to stay at the YHA this year, any girls want to share a room? I'll be up on the Friday and will stay til Wednesday so I can get back down to 'Gods country' for Greenman the following weekend.

Tinks   on 16/01/17 @ 18:07 said:

Bionic Man: Hi Chris,I am down as a definite,got to start somewhere again and your long weekends always seem lots of fun

Tinks   on 16/01/17 @ 18:12 said:

Peppasmum: Yes please to room share and hopefully I will be able to stay same days as you Thank you xx

Bionic Man   on 16/01/17 @ 21:38 said:

Good stuff ladies. Hope you can arrange to share room. You may need to call Ambleside YHA directly to put you in a room together, in case you book separately��

hillmale   on 16/01/17 @ 22:37 said:

And after all this time, i thought Yorkshire was Gods country, like the rest but just prettier lol.
For thos going on the rampage, pillaging n such, im sharpening my Axe, as we speak

Rachael 234   on 16/01/17 @ 22:57 said:

I've booked into Ambleside YHA for the week but more than happy to share a room.

Carpe Diem!   on 17/01/17 @ 13:34 said:

Rourky: I okey koke in my sleep pal ....bring it on. Look out for the pole dancin' up the mast ...a Nordick specialty

Tracy (no 'e'!)   on 17/01/17 @ 18:16 said:

Rachael 234: Tinks: Been doing some research on places to stay, it looks like the Backpackers isn't taking bookings yet, the YHA has plenty of space and the cheapest option is a 3 bed room, but only by ?3... so Tinks and Rachel if you want to come in that it's fine by me. Holiday cottages are cheaper again, but most are geared towards families and have double beds, which does not fit us singletons. I'm now staying all week as my girlies have gone off Greenman, so I'd be booking Friday 11th to Saturday 19th, though I'm happy to go to an ordinary bed if that time was too long.

Rachael 234   on 17/01/17 @ 22:06 said:

Peppasmum. Those dates suit me. I've booked already but I can cancel if we were wanting to book a 3 bed room instead? How much would it be ? I'm paying ?30 per night at the mo.

Bionic Man   on 21/01/17 @ 12:40 said:

Hello pagans, I've just called the YHA and even if you've already booked they can put all you ladies in the same room
Just call the number above with all the full names and they will put you together. Let me know directly if you have any issues x

jo_jo   on 21/01/17 @ 18:59 said:

I have booked 4 nights from Friday-Tuesday at the Thorneyfield B&B. They have more rooms to spare for anyone interested - ?35 per night incl breakfast... not bad

Morningdawn   on 24/01/17 @ 20:48 said:

Peppasmum: Hi Tracey, I stayed in the backpackers last year but he did say they were closing down as selling up, not sure if they have re-opened it again. Maybe reason you can't book yet. Hopefully myself Jill and Debbs sorting somewhere out to stay too.

hillmale   on 25/01/17 @ 3:19 said:

Why don't some of you girls book a cottage ,like us 4 blokes did last year ,the place we had the B.B.Q. etc ,weve got the place next door this year ,bit bigger ,better facilities ,some of the girls last year ,spoke of getting somewhere together ,have a look at The Heart Of The Lakes as mention in info above

Jill18   on 25/01/17 @ 23:49 said:

Yep..looking for a the moment just for me Debs and Dawn.....any other girlies fancy sharing..?

Ladyeliza (Liz)   on 27/01/17 @ 10:49 said:

Janhk   on 05/02/17 @ 17:57 said:

Bionic Man   on 08/02/17 @ 18:34 said:

How about Kayaking on the Tues and a walk in the Langdales on the Wednesday, if that's OK CDiem and Hillmale?

Jill18   on 08/02/17 @ 18:46 said:

Just Bea   on 08/02/17 @ 20:59 said:

Frankie...thats a good question.... I know the ship is now full of...The barbaric Vikings... but i hope i still can join some walks / activities during the week...especially the kayaking

minty    on 08/02/17 @ 21:58 said:

Carpe Diem!: is there any canoe hire on Windermere. I can Paddle across from my campsite. Just an idea of Logistics.

Jill18   on 08/02/17 @ 22:26 said:

We usually Kayak on Coniston Larry...xx

Bionic Man   on 09/02/17 @ 10:57 said:

Hello Frankie and all, the other activities are all in the following week to the sailing and will be posted soon. The sailing over the first weekend is full x

Carpe Diem!   on 09/02/17 @ 11:05 said:

minty : tradition is to canoe on Coniston, Larry. Great hire facilities there. Look out for the invitation!
Bionic Man: hillmale: ok let's canoe on the Tuesday - just checked and that's actually the day we did it last year. I'll get the invitation up within the next few days! J

jo_jo   on 09/02/17 @ 11:30 said:

Oooh sounds fun!!! I might have to stay another night so as not to miss the canoeing then

minty    on 09/02/17 @ 11:49 said:

Carpe Diem!: sounds brilliant anyway count me in. Going to be a bloody good laugh

hillmale   on 09/02/17 @ 16:26 said:

I'll look at sorting a route in the Langdales on the Weds then ,as with Johnathon i'll put it up as a separate invite ,on the date of the Weds.
One thing tho ,its the Ryedale Dog n Sheep week too ,I think Al's got the details on that ,id like to attend that at some time ,if Al can post here which day or days that is ,we may have to work around that aswell ,we had a great time there ,the year before last.
I'll look at a low level route somewhere ,for the fri too

alpine hiker   on 09/02/17 @ 17:19 said:

Just Bea   on 09/02/17 @ 18:46 said:

Frankie  on 09/02/17 @ 19:07 said:

Bionic man. Let me know if anyone drops out. Didn't realise we had to book a slot. Heyho. I will look to swop me holidays to the week after so I can join in canoe and walks. x

Bionic Man   on 09/02/17 @ 20:01 said:

Frankie you are welcome aboard the longboat
You were down as a definite before I closed the invite on 8th Feb, sorry maybes, just not the room

Carpe Diem!   on 10/02/17 @ 11:26 said:

Frankie: you're definitely on-board (well,briefly...), which is good, as preparations for your Nordic induction are well-advanced

Carpe Diem!   on 10/02/17 @ 11:28 said:

Bionic Man: ..don't want to nag, but I take it you'll be announcing positions of responsibility and those getting highly-deserved promotions, in the near future? I'm drooling with anticipation...

minty    on 10/02/17 @ 14:11 said:

Bionic Man: I hope my rank will be suitable to my status. Being a clean living Viking.

Ladyeliza (Liz)   on 10/02/17 @ 21:39 said:

Booked 4 nights at Thorneyfields B&B and 2 nights YH. Still interested in a cottage if you manage to find one, though its hard to find anything suitable I've had a look.

Frankie  on 12/02/17 @ 7:22 said:

BM- i am in. Ahhh thanks Chris.

hillmale   on 12/02/17 @ 22:15 said:

Hi all ,the year before last ,me n Al went to Rydal Dog n Sheep show ,as he's just said ,its on the Thursday of our week in the Lakes.
There's no activities planned for the Thursday ,I would like to walk to the show ,as me n Al did etc ,about an hour or so.
If people would like do this also ,then great ,and theres a beer tent too lol

alpine hiker   on 13/02/17 @ 15:43 said:

Yes I remember Glenn, having had a beer I asked the sheepdog trial secretary if there was a beginners class as Molly fancied a go. It didn't go down well!

Sue + Dawgz   on 13/02/17 @ 20:14 said:

Hi folks, know the invite is full for the weekend and not planning on trying to gate crash the sailing, especially with the pooches, but I am going to stay at Hawkshead hall campsite and hopefully catch up on some of the walks and stuff in the week.

Just Bea   on 13/02/17 @ 20:36 said:

Sue, that would be fab...

Same here, I keep away from them Vikings..You never know where you will end up,if you get tanggled up with them... They are quiete ruthless ...keep a wide birth if possible

hillmale   on 13/02/17 @ 20:38 said:

It isn't the Blonde who needs training Al ,its you lol ,your SO out of control ,you bad lad ,Woo Hoo

Ladyeliza (Liz)   on 15/02/17 @ 10:40 said:

I don't need my room at Thorneyfields B&B if anyone is interested. Ive booked Thursday to Sunday ?180 for 4 nights for 1 person, it is a twin room but will cost a bit more for 2 people.

Rourky   on 15/02/17 @ 20:32 said:

Dog show and beer thinking we'ĺl win prizes in several catagories ��

hillmale   on 15/02/17 @ 22:24 said:

Several catagories erm ,im thinking ,dogs are one ,beers another ,whats the third discipline were gunna win a prize in then ,my Welsh friend ,the mind boggles lol

minty    on 16/02/17 @ 10:54 said:

hillmale: Rourky: maybe you too should enter. Under old dogs R Us category.

Carpe Diem!   on 16/02/17 @ 13:57 said:

minty : there ain't no such thing as a "clean living Viking"...

minty    on 16/02/17 @ 14:23 said:

In the ancient Viking history. Back in 600 Ad. Obscure Viking Clan. They believe in virtuous living. Not partaking of drinking Mead. Or singing loudly in a drunken stupor. Or Partaking in riotous living.

Carpe Diem!   on 23/02/17 @ 13:30 said:

Rourky: ..hope so
hillmale: the folk you're describing, Glenn, sound like wimpish fairies to me. I wash annually and live in a scummy ditch as preparation for August. I already cut a figure of fear and trepidation...I expect Chris to give me a high rank in respect of this...anyone who falls short or doesn't cut the mustard needn't book a second night's accommodation...

Carpe Diem!   on 23/02/17 @ 13:31 said:

Rourky: see above - if you think that's rude you've got some serious work to do before you climb aboard...

Ragnar And His Vikings

In wooden longships with both oars and sail,
Carrying weapons and shields, they couldn' t fail.
The invading army came from out of the north,
Stepped out of their ships, then marched forth

What day shall we kayak on Coniston...although a dirty word after River Mersey Trip...shall we do it on the Tuesday guys...??

Bionic Man   on 06/03/17 @ 10:12 said:

Walk on the Weds 16th (Bionic or Hillmale to post)

Maz   on 01/06/17 @ 20:40 said:

There is room in the yha, so was thinking of booking. Anyone else booked in there? There are also rooms for two or three still available. Anyone want to share?

Maz   on 07/06/17 @ 17:13 said:

Booked into yha Sunday -Friday. Anyone else there or are you all in cottages?

Carpe Diem!   on 11/06/17 @ 0:58 said:

Hi Maz ....I'm in the yha from the first Friday until the Mon but then move into a cottage! I'm sure some others are in the hostel but either way we're all quite close together

Maz   on 12/06/17 @ 9:19 said:

Yippee in a cottage with the girls- Tracy, Liz, Rachael and co, so sorted thanks. Might stay in hostel Friday night too.

Bionic Man   on 12/06/17 @ 13:06 said:

That's nice news Maz...
By the way The YH tends to be the focal/meeting point for many of the activities, as it also has a nice lake view. As history tells us they will be in for a stock again

Rosie. B   on 15/06/17 @ 12:06 said:

Hello Chris, I know this event is billed as full but I've put my name down just in case. is there a bar b q social event like last year and are all 3 sailing times full? Please let me know - I'd have loved to join in. Beth x

Maz   on 16/06/17 @ 21:52 said:

Booked in hostel for Friday night with some of the gang.
Will go up early Friday and see you all there.

Bionic Man   on 19/06/17 @ 13:27 said:

Hello Rosie B trust you are well..
Sunday sailing is certainly full but there may be room on the Friday or Monday. I will have to let you know nearer the time. Hope that's OK

Rosie. B   on 20/06/17 @ 11:15 said:

Friday would be great if poss, otherwise Monday yes. Look forward to catching up with u again! x

Allocating sailing days...if you around on Monday please sail on Monday as Sunday will have to possibly do 2 trips out am and pm. We can sort out numbers on the Saturday walk too
So far for Friday I have:

Please if you are not sailing please let me know as we are stretched for numbers

Who else might be up for alternative row boat (or shore) based rampaging on Friday from 12:30 Windermere Waterhead Pier...maybe they still do creamed glacier dipped into hot chocolate, to fire us into action...?

minty    on 09/07/17 @ 19:44 said:

hi who else is camping at Low Wray Campsite..out of interest.there's no mention of anybody else camping there apart from me.where the campsite is I am out on a limb.if no one else is camping there I might have to revalidate me going.unfortunately.or do my own thing at campsite not being rude

minty    on 09/07/17 @ 19:56 said:

I have paid upfront for this campsite.thinking that will be other people staying there.look at all the comments no one has mentioned about staying there..the reason for this is because I'm driving down in my camper van.anyway it would be nice for some sort of response thank you

Hey Minty,just chill out and bring a camper full of Cider,me thinks you will not be alone for long.

Hello Minty, I'm not aware of anybody else camping at Low Wray. Maybe we can find somewhere nearer to the YHA. Sorry to be slow to respond.
Back in touch later

Bionic Man: no worries going anyway.hopefully catch you there if not have a great time

Bionic Man   on 10/07/17 @ 12:39 said:

Good news Minty you have the option of camping at Ambleside FC during the summer. They have a face book page and it will be cheaper than Wray Castle NT site and more central

minty    on 10/07/17 @ 13:20 said:

Bionic Man:thank you very much but unfortunately I've already paid upfront months ago.thank you very much for the idea.

minty    on 11/07/17 @ 11:09 said:

hi with great and sadness I've had to cancel this weekend.looking where I'll be staying on campsite and all the activities it would cost me a lot of money trying to get across to Ambleside.really guttedI know everyone will have a lovely time in the lakes it's just a pity I wasn'tgiving more information early on about who was staying on the campsite anyway take care everyone and have a lovely time

Bionic Man   on 11/07/17 @ 13:15 said:

Very sorry to hear you can't make it Minty but if you get a refund from the NT campsite and stay at Ambleside FC it is a lot more central and cheaper. I'm afraid you were the only one camping which is a surprise. Hope you have rethink. Skipper

Jo J   on 17/07/17 @ 22:09 said:

Bionic man: sorry but I am away Sunday am, so Monday sail not possible...various other cunning plans afoot...also too late to be counted for official Saturday walk so considering a side swipe up Low and High Pike over Dove Crag and a swoop down to intercept the wimps rising from Red Screes, my Grannies's Viking blood is in the ascendant...prepare to defend the nights you heathen hordes!

Jo J   on 17/07/17 @ 22:17 said:

Aaargh, 'Heights'! Oh for an editable spell check...

Carpe Diem!   on 17/07/17 @ 22:22 said:

Jo J: edible or editable?

Carpe Diem!   on 17/07/17 @ 22:24 said:

Jo J: oh and make sure you bring plenty of granny's blood with you'll be a fine base for a Viking mead...

Jo J   on 17/07/17 @ 22:31 said:

Hah! Am fine tuning the Viking Hunting Horn..and really wishing had read the Red Screes route description afore issuing said challenge...but undaunted will figure cunning plans B, C and D to keeps yous all guessing which directions a charge might come from.. .

Carpe Diem!   on 20/07/17 @ 9:17 said:

Jo J: "charge"? irrelevance as you'll be hanging upside down wi' t'other petrified inductees. WE talk with our vile actions...

Carpe Diem!   on 20/07/17 @ 9:17 said:

Rosie. B: Viking women have to have shaved heads...

Carpe Diem!   on 21/07/17 @ 17:24 said:
