I've set up
a companion blog to this site - that will let me post more frequent

I've decided to make a page of
UK Traffic Free Cycle Routes
that I've ridden - as information on them can be a bit tricky to
track down. It's a bit basic at the moment as it took so long to
do the Brisotl/Bath Railway Path entry, but I'll flesh
out the rest when I have time. I feel a more comprehensive cycling
section of the site coming on.

get on to the upload site.

I've made a
Grading Comparison Table
for various systems used to grade rock climbs around the world.
This is a reworking of a text based table I put together several
years ago (and goes to show how difficult it is to put together
column oriented data in an HTML table).
Also included are some notes on how the UK rock grading system works.
It brings the total content of my site to 7 Megabytes.

My Munro Map.
It's not an active map, so you can't click on it

I finally got around to incorporating my tables of

They're all linked off my partners list on my

We've got a new scanner and just got the photos back from Liz &
Mark's Wedding (at which I was Best Man).
So we've scanned a few in and made a

Just got back from a walking/climbing trip to Scotland so my mountain and
climbing lists have been updated appropriately. (I also fixed the
conversion factor bug which led to all the metre heights being wrong).
I'm also working on my
Graded List of UK Climbs
and will link it into my home page when I'm happy with it. An area list is
also planned, and lists of climbs and mountains by partners when I get
round to it.

I should be getting a scanner soon, so I'll replace
the rather poor 256 colour GIFs with true colour JPEGs if I can find all
the original photos.

Brought up this site. I'm currently maintaining it from a laptop
with only 10MB of free disk space, so there'll be no images or complex
pages for a while. I intend to get a "proper" computer soon. Then I'll be
able to set up a more comprehensive site.
