Out and about

Hello and welcome to this new edition of the site!

I shall be regularly posting new links to blog posts right from this page. So what are the posts about? Every summer I go out walking with friends up hill and down dale and I do this for two reasons 1) I get the opportunity to take amazing photographs of the stunning outdoors 2) its a great way to exercise - it also gets me out of the house - ok thats three reasons but I could go on. I am a fair weather walker simply because I don't like walking in the rain. If we had decent winters and plenty of snow and harsh frosts then I would certainly walk in that but rain and wind - not pretty or fun.

We are the three lost ramblers and we would like to welcome you to our blog. I use the term blog loosely as its more of a journal - is that the same as a blog, maybe? We are three co workers who work long shifts in a boring factory. We share a common interest in the great outdoors, shedding a few pounds, keeping fit and of course breaking the last two rules by enjoying a few pints and a bowl of chips after every adventure.
Every walk that we have been on we have come across many weird and wonderful things. When we start a walk we often say to one another "I wonder what we shall see today" and sure enough we see something. From Giant Ant hills, to World War II generator houses its quite amazing what is tucked away off the beaten track.
Why 'lost' ramblers? Because the maps are always wrong and it leads us in the wrong direction - ok, ok its nice to blame the map once in while but we don't claim to have the skills of Bear Grills or Ray Mears which means on occasion we do go the wrong way. However this all adds to the excitement of the adventure. We don't tend to stay lost for very long and thanks to a new App we get lost less now.
If you are stopping by for inspiration, routes or a good laugh then grab yourself a tipple of your finest poison put your feet up and enjoy our exploits and adventures.

Because I am quite limited to a simple template / design on this blog facility I have decided to actually create the blog post for each walk on a separate site and post the individual links below. Most of the pics I take on our adventures are for sale in the main galleries so please show your appreciation and treat you walls to something special.
