    I used this trod in last year's LDMT. Leg was from a re-entrant on the south side of Esk Pike, over to a stream near High House Tarn on Glaramara.

    And I bet you didn't send your entry in until about May or June.

    Like a lot of people I used to enjoy many of Danbert's posts, he was very funny. Some of the banter between him and The Heathens on the football thread was pretty memorable.
    Completely agree with this MR. I've had my fair share of run ins with forumites over the years but I've never resorted to personal insults - it means you've lost the argument.

    I respect the views of people I've debated with over the years, I can't mention them all but of note: Christopher Leigh, Danbert, Antisocial, Witton and your good self amongst others. I was in my early 20s when I joined the forum and rapidly approaching 40 now - it's interesting to look back and see how your views evolve over the years.

    One thing that doesn't evolve is football, however. Off the pitch, anyway..... Utd are a different beast to that when I joined the forum along with the NBLG group in 2001.

    Danbert was a legend and I used to love our head to heads. Despite how it might have appeared on here, John (Danbert) and I had decent banter off the forum as well. RIP mate.

    Good to hear from you Heathens. RIP Danbert - a proper forum legend
