What has OutdoorDuo done for me?

  Add a 'What has ...'

I have met a very special lady through this site. Thank-you for your help
Barry M 

It was a great experience to join OD back in April 2016 and meet some very nice like-minded people; I enjoyed some amazing walks that I would otherwise never discovered.

I met M on the site about 2 years ago and we are now about to move in together. I keep recommending people to OD as it's been fantastic and I've loved being part of the 'family'.Thank you for everything.Vee

Found a partner

I have found someone and we are getting along very well. I am pleased I heard about your Site from a friend as I consider it to be a good genuine site for finding someone compatible. Many thanks

Alpine hiker: Hi I see you have previously mastered Crib Goch, saw your amazing pictures. Not sure if you're crazy enough to do it again but feel free. I haven't walked it since 1999 and I have a little book with a diagram and arrows pointing to the knife edge and it says "hair raising". The Cwm Eigiau is a fabulous walk, for me nothing can compare, I did find it tough though in April. I think it's age.

I have been up Crib a few years ago with some OD pals and really enjoyed it. Didn't now there was photographic evidence. Hoping to join you for this circuit if weather is ok, with my dog Molly.

alpine hiker: just to let you know there is a steep descent down from Pen yr Helgi Du (like the photo for this walk, above) and a scramble up the slab at Craig yr Ysfa. This bit could be avoided by going further round I think. I'm thinking of Molly's legs, but she may have been over similar ground. Regards

Thanks Catherine I will ask her

i'm committed to working Thursday Night so need to get a sleep in somewhere, juggling the hours to fit it in

M3   on 20/05/17 @ 17:06 said:

Ridgewalker: No worries, feeling exhausted before tackling the mountains is not a good idea. Beauty sleep is far more important

See you all at walk start on the Friday am, i suggest as many can carshare from Y-Bedol Inn as possible, its a long narrow drive in of around 4 mls. Parking area is limited to a gravel hardstanding for only a few cars end of road turn around point. Suggested meetup is 8.45am for lifts from main road parking opp the Tal-y-Bont pub.

M3   on 23/05/17 @ 14:44 said:

StephenJohn: Hi there. There is parking for about 15 cars in the small car park but people also park on the grass verge., as like when I did it in April on a busy Sunday,it was packed, at 10 o'clock. We'll be fine on a Friday. However we will be car sharing to get there. Any volunteers to push my old fiesta up?
I take it you have been there? Did you do the sacred walk? It's fab isn't it? Looking forward to this, can't wait. Reccying it this Mon, Tues. Best wishes

I'm very interested in joining you for this walk but will have my fit black lab with me. He's done walks on high ground before. I see one of you is bringing a dog and I assume the route is OK for a fit one?

M3   on 31/05/17 @ 18:30 said:

David99: There are two scrambles either end of the ridge which I wouldn't take my dog on. The dogs would probably have to be lifted somehow up the slab, which involves a few hand holds too. There are a few severe drops where a dog could unknowingly run and fall over. A lead is necessary because of sheep too. Ultimately it is the owners decision. All I can say is caution is necessary in places to avoid accidents. I definitely say that the Snowdon Horseshoe is not suitable for dogs. Hope this helps.

M3   on 31/05/17 @ 18:32 said:

Also just to clarify that the start point is the small car park 4 miles up the small mountain road (gated) from Tal-y-bont, not the pub car park!

David99   on 31/05/17 @ 21:23 said:

m3M3: Thanks for the advice. I think I shall have to find a more dog friendly route.

M3   on 01/06/17 @ 22:10 said:

I think this walk may take a large group of us up to 8 hours (well it took two of us pussyfooting around in the mist 9 actually, we got lost twice). Therefore I am considering moving the start time. If we all want showers I think a minimum of 2 hours getting ready time is necessary before the pub, so we'd need to be back at bunkhouse for 5 ish. 8 ish or 8.15 start time we'd need to leave at 7.30 ish. Does that sound too early for people, particularly for any travelling from far away places.

Also we're staying near water and woods so I was thinking of bringing a mossy killer plug in thing. But if anyone objects I understand and we could try lavender oil instead. I literally was eaten alive.

M3   on 01/06/17 @ 23:34 said:

Ps: it may be wise to bring boot wax with you and one or two newspapers. My boots were thoroughly waxed yet the leather still managed to wet through, just the prolonged exposure to wet grass, bogs and Heather. It just wore off. So wet boots went back on next day.
Don't let recent comments put you off it will be fab x

Jen1613   on 02/06/17 @ 6:47 said:

Earlier start fine for me Catherine - plug in mozzie killer too!!

M3   on 02/06/17 @ 11:55 said:

Jen1613: Brill.

Another thing about this walk is the first bit entails wading through heather, it's fine, but legs need covering or they'll get scratched. It's only the first part, legs should be fine the rest of it. But I'm wearing long leggings for this one. On the Snowdon Horseshoe it's more about the rocks, rather than undergrowth.

M3   on 02/06/17 @ 22:39 said:

On and near to Carnedd Llewelyn there are rocks that resemble Kendal Mint Cake, but I think it might be quartz? It's white.

Have bought 2 plug in mosquito repellent devices today, 50% deet jungle formula and in case they manage to still get through anthisan for Plan B. Otherwise they do itch for 2-3 days. I don't think I could manage Scotland.

M3   on 05/06/17 @ 22:44 said:

Don't worry the plug ins aren't 50% deet, just the spray. However they will contain insecticide.
Also there is a small room upstairs with two single beds so if there are any couples, then it's yours, no probs. But if not I may be tempted, let's see who gets there first.

Indiana Jane   on 08/06/17 @ 7:50 said:

Midges rarely bother you inside houses so the plug-in repellents probably won't be necessary. Insect repellent might be very useful if you want to sit outside though.

M3   on 10/06/17 @ 14:35 said:

Wenna, who owns the Siabod Longhouse says the midges are out in full force and to bring jungle juice. I think the plug ins will be necessary.
Pillows are provided, kitchen stuff like fairy and loo rolls too.
Nearly time to rock n roll.
