Welcome to our home on the World Wide Web.
If you haven't been here before we hope you'll find what you're looking for and will come back again. We don't bite (unless we're really hungry.......) so feel free to e-mail us - use the "Contact Us" link at the bottom of the page - if you want more information about anything you've seen on these pages.
So exactly what can you can expect to find on these pages ?
Walking - There is a load of information on walking, what to wear, where to buy it, how to navigate and what to do if, despite your best endeavours, everything goes "pear-shaped" while you're out in the mountains. There are also routes of some of the walks that we have done and enjoyed, primarily in the mountainous parts of the UK such as the Lake District, Scotland, Snowdonia, Yorkshire and the Brecon Beacons but there are also a load in Pembrokeshire mostly, but not all, on the Coast Path. If you're looking for ideas for your next walk that is the place to head to. We hope you enjoy your walking wherever you go !
Real Ale - What better way is there to finish off good day but finding a good pub and having a good pint of Real Ale ? You'll find a lot of info here about brewing in general and a list of beer festivals but there is also some information on some of the pubs that we have come across and enjoyed in our travels.
Travel - Mostly we spend our time exploring the fleshpots (!) and the wilds of Cumbria. However, sometimes we fire up the polluting device, send an extremely large cheque to the Chancellor and head off further afield. Here, typically, we will spend a few days walking/skiing or seeing the sights before the natives realise who we are and send us packing.
The Skiing Pages
In recent years we have not been able to go skiing as often as we might have liked. Consequently, the information on the skiing pages is both a bit sparse and, increasingly, more and more out of date. While we have started to go skiing again we will not be going more than once a year and so, I have decided to remove this information from the website.
I am sorry if that disappoints you but there are a lot of other websites out there with that information. Happy skiing !
The Jack Pack Pages.
Now, Mum and Dad do a fairly good job with this website but they don't always get it completely right (we're afraid that it could just be Alzheimer's as they are starting to get on a bit......) so we're here to set the record straight.
On these pages we'll give you a totally accurate and completely unbiased (would you expect anything else ?) take on some of the things written in other parts of this website. We'll also give our opinion on things that are really important in the lives of 2 Jack Russell Terrors Terriers.
(That really isn't very funny Dad !)
So, please go to the Jack Pack pages, after all that's where all the really interesting stuff is !
