    Presumably one would be purchasing a First Class ticket for 6, with complementary refreshments - luncheon perhaps?

    Need to be careful with Lakes buses. I was once tempted on to the top deck of an open-top service on a cold bright day at this time of year. After doing 60mph along the A591 I couldn't feel my face for about half an hour after I got off.

    13.27 miles, 4,388 feet, 4 hours 21 minutes: Wansfell Ridge - St Raven's Edge - Red Screes - Roundhill Farm. Blue sky, the occasional cloud, a slight breeze on the tops, terrain dry and soft. Quite a lot on Wansfell Pike, very few on Red Screes, though the Kirkstone car park was almost full. Superb running conditions.

    10.53 miles, 3,073 feet, 3 hours 9 minutes: Loughrigg trails. The lovely calm dry sunny weather persists. Lots on the fell. My partner walked Red Screes - loved it - but wants me to remind her to take food next time.

    Two fantastic days in Mid-Wales.

    Yesterday a rectangularish walk with son and dogs from Eisteddfa Gurig to Plynlimon and Arwystli. The air was so clear that the views were the best I have had. From Plynlimon summit, to the north Cadair Idris, The Arenigs, The Arans and Berwyns and to the south The Preseli Hills, Camarthen Fans, Brecon Beacons and Black Mountains all could be clearly seen. To the northwest Bardsey Island and southwest to Cardigan and possibly Strumble Head. Not to be left out the Briedden Hills could be seen to the east.

    From Arwystli we could see Snowdon and The Rhinogs which had been hidden behind Cadair Idris from Plynlimon.

    Only 8 miles and 1,550 feet but every step a glorious one.

    Today a lovely walk to Glaslyn and Bugeilyn where we spoke to a fisherman who said that the black finned trout in Bugeilyn were small but the best fighters. From what I could see the solitary Cormorant was catching more than he was!
    Again spectacular views, especially from the TP at Foel Fadian, over to Cadair Idris, The Arans and back to Plynlimon.

    7 and a half miles and just 754 feet. Only 5 people seen yesterday and 4 today. Hopefully it stays that quiet.

    Having said that, I suspect that this weekend the Welsh coast and Snowdonia will be snided by the amount of traffic we met on our way out of Wales, proper summer Bank Holiday levels. The pictures on tomorrows news reports are not going to look good.

    Covid numbers back up by the middle of May?

    Sounds great, I must get back there sometime as had many a happy run and walk over those hills, much underated in favour of the North and South mountains. Fished and camped at Bugeilyn a few times as I would walk over from Hafren with the tent etc. my fishing club still has a ticket to fish there - perhaps I should make a plan for old times sake! Been very, very clear the last few days, feel like I could reach out and touch the Beacons from here with no haze at all.
    Don't roll with a pig in poo. You get covered in poo and the pig likes it.

    A great place to go for a bit of solitude with only few paths and trods. As you will know Moley, when the wind, rain and clag come in if you find yourself off the paths it will give anywhere a run for its money in terms of toughness to get about.

    9.68 miles, 3,461 feet, 3 hours 8 minutes: Wansfell Pike from 3 sides. The perfect weather and underfoot conditions persist. The tourist paths are very busy, as are the P+D car parks.
