Inaugural Stratos Outing - Saltford
Inaugural outing for the newly acquired K1s after work on Saltford Shallows @JonnyC: With a little haste we organised ourselves after work (with more effort on Rich's part than mine) to get the paddling gear to Saltford. Fettling was curtailed at first by the gathering of an audience (never pleasant for a launch), so a swift entry followed by a wave to the crowd and a paddle away to safety. Some minor adjustments and we were underway, heading down to Saltford Lock before heading back up stream to the weir. A swift RTB saw us comfortably maxing at abou ...

Zig-Zagging the Avon and Kennet - Avon and Kennet Canal, Dundas Aquaduct
After a somewhat distracted morning with a roof tent, this was the first proper trip in the K2 for AE. With RM as front man, AE had control of the rudder leading to a much longer trip than necessary. Once the steering was under control, the return trip was a somewhat serene experience despite the physical strain. With no wind and, by some miracle, no rain, the perfect weather for paddling led to a successful afternoon, even returning before dark. Max speed: 9.3km/h Moving av.: 5.9km/h Total: 16.5km Moving time: 2h46m Stop: 33m

A first trip into Swildon's for George, developing a perspective of marine life millions of years ago. Air quality not fantastic but with suitable pacing we headed in short dry, down the inclined rift and back up through Barnes loop exiting via the wet way.

Beneath Three Lamps - Raven's Well
A short UrbEx and cache close to central Bristol @JonnyC: Having been on the to do list for a while, we applied the 'book a date' methodology to make this trip happen, so de-stressing from work over a quick Italian we prepared ourselves for the adventure ahead, and debated the relative comfort of approaching a subterranean trip in the city as opposed to the countryside. Before long we were amongst the hounds and making efforts to change covertly in the back of the van, a quick recce was encouraged by the presence of an onlooker. Once changed, and h

Mini GeoStint - Lydford-on-Fosse
A mini GeoStint around Lydford-on-Fosse to get some fresh air on my Birthday weekend @JonnyC: We did the Lydford Logbook and Babcary Bounce series with a break in between for dinner. About 8 hours of caching/walking well into the dark. Good series for night caching as not near too many houses.
