    Re: Meirionnydd Round.

    I'll be looking to do some reccing of this little route of ydt's, probably in the New Year. I'll be contacting the usual suspects but does anyone fancy some exploring? Highlights are Cader east-west, Rhinogs south-north and Arans north-south. Plus the odd boggy heathery bit . Rhinog Fach to Trawsfynnydd is likely to be first up.

    I think Iain Ridgeway is planning some reccying. Perhaps you could join forces.
    I will scan some screenshots of the exact route and probably post them on http://yiannistridimas.tripod.com/ soon.

    Yeah wouldn't mind starting to look at the round and getting to know that area. Didn't really get to see any of it this year.

    I might well be interested, Rob. It's an area that I don't know at all, but am keen to explore. As you know, I've got the usual child-care considerations (Saturdays are better than Sundays), but I'd like you to keep me informed.

    This sounds like a Ramsay, Baggins.

    Re: Meirionnydd Round.

    Love to come over with you Rob, fascinated by the round and had hoped to look at more of it this summer - but only just running again (since May) from injury. I know quite a few bits now, and more of where not to go .

    I will be in Tasmania/NZ all Jan and Feb, but if you go out in December (I have nothing to do on christmas day ) or from March onwards, let me know.
    Any damn fool can make money, show me someone who can make time.

    I echo Bill. I will help you with the round. Not in a nav way though, as I dont know them hills. The Ramsey is taking my focus in terms of route finding and exploration. have fun though Rob.

    Thanks Alan. I trust you mean Ramsay, Ramsey is in Huntingdonshire and rather flat . As for Meiri recceing, I think I see a chink opening in the diary for weekend of Nov 1-2: will know in a few days. There is a nice newish youth hostel near Bala.

    Also a Date of 9 May seems to have crept into my schedule .
