Born & Bred in Guernsey surrounded by the sea but love the hills. Done a bit of climbing locally and in the lakes. Done a lot of Sea Kayaking.
I worked in outdoor ed in my yoof (well mid twenties) and now that the kids are getting old enough am getting back into a bit of hill walking. We go up to the spey area every easter and I am starting to introduce them to something a bit more challenging. Just started helping out with DofE and am getting back into my ML after a long lay off.
ML completed a few years ago and SPA done this year (2015) now embarking on a long overdue Alpine career and maybe looking at MIA training next year. Climbing is slowly coming back, now back up to leading HVS and looking to break back into E1 territory next season, we'll see!
