New Year's Day- Overstrand 8.5 miles

Post by liam_dsouza » Wed Nov 30, 2016 7:12 pm

For the first walk of 2017 I will be leading a 8.5 miles circular walk from Overstrand

A walk along lanes and footpaths exploring the area inland from Overstrand, taking in rolling farmland, woodland and quiet villages

Start time: 11:30

Meeting point: Overstrand Car Park Pauls Lane Grid Ref: TG248410
Sat-Nav: NR27 0PF / 52°55'10.6"N 1°20'27.9"E

Bring drinks, lunch etc.

This walk is also being advertised on our Meetup - at https://www.meetup.com/Norfolk-Area-Ram ... 236477356/.

This sounds good Liam....a bit of a warm up for the Stanstead Stagger. :D

Hi,
I'm new to all this (including forums), so I hope this is the right way to go about things. I wondered if I could join you for the new year's day walk please? Any tips (apart from putting one foot in front of the other ;) ) would be appreciated!
Thanks,
Claire

Hi Claire, welcome to the group and you'd be very welcome to join us!

It's nice and easy to come along, just remember to bring some water (or vodka, whatever will help you get around) and some snacks to fuel your efforts. The pace won't be too fast and our members are welcoming and friendly so feel free to ask question at any time.

Julian.

Thanks Julian :)
Sounds like my kind of walk; I'm looking forward to it. I'll dust off my walking boots and look forward to meeting everyone in 2017.
Enjoy the festivities!

Hi all, I'm hoping to attend your walk on the 1St. I'm not fit (used to be) lol hoping this will give me the kick I need. Also be nice to meet new people (stuck in a rut) lol

Hi Gina :)

You'd be very welcome - look forwards to seeing you there! We're good at getting people out of ruts!

Feel free to ask any questions here or message on Facebook in advance of the walk, but everyone is very friendly and it's a healthy new way to start the year :)

Howdie,
My husband and I would love to join you if there's space, we aren't very hike savvy but would like to start.

Hi - there's space and you're both very welcome!

The walk won't be completed at a fast pace and there are several breaks for drinks, as well as a lunch-stop.

Look forwards to meeting you both :)

Lovely walk Liam - and an impressive effort from everyone in such soggy conditions!

And I hope to see all the new people again because you were all so nice :) (as are our other not new members obviously!)
