As Saturdays walk was so popular, shall we start planning the next one ?
Any suggestions ?
If anyone has any Saturdays they can't make, tell us now.

It looks nice there but it's still over 3hr round trip for the drive... anything even a BIT further south? As I'm not from England it's hard for me to come up with ideas for walks, but if we were all in Santa Barbara (where I'm from) I have many many trails and walks to go on?! So sorry if I sound like a stick in the mud. Maybe we should try and get a Southern branch walk together for any Southerners who might like a wander round these parts but can't do the long drive?

Saying that though, we'd love to come to Wendover with you if that's what's on offer for Feb.

How far South do you live Kirt?

Don't think I've got anything on in Feb......and am OK as long as it's not more than 1.5 - 2 hours from me. Anwwhere off the M25 is good for me.

Fancy coming to Essex? Hadleigh Downs is good (where I'm off to in a mo).....get a bit of culture and see the site for the 2012 Olympic Mountain bike location Very Happy ....and you might get a cup of tea and biscuits thrown in at mine LOL

The only Saturday i CAN do is the 21st Feb 😢

All the other Sats we have MK DONS football games at home. Unless we met at 12pm instead of 1pm.

Does it have to be a Saturday??? How about a Sunday???
Would hate to miss it.......Incey was soooooo much better out walking meeting other dogs today...seems like he has grown up a bit.

Nik if you could travel to this side of London then we wil be able to come. I can do London in an hour and a half. Essex would be that bit too far for me and the thought of the M25 sends shivers down my spine.

Wendover is the right side of London I think.....off the M.40....before you get to the M25.

Not far from me Nik, about 40 mins...quite near where we hold our show every year.

God it took me about 3 hours to get to your show the other year Lorraine lol! Mind you we did get incredibly lost. Had to come up the M5 to Birmingham to join the M40 instead of just being able to go up the M4. There was a massive crash that day and they shut it.

We will try and get to Wendover. Any day is fine for us.

We Live RIGHT on the coast, Worthing, we're going to try and do the Wendover walk in Feb but maybe Essex would be the March walk?!

Lisa and I have a few good walking places to go, but sadly none of them include ponds, lakes, rivers, but we DO have the Rife which CAN be fun at the right time of the year!

Also a lot of our walks include some hills which is good in the wet season because the water runs off allowing for a good dryish run.

Maybe if the Northerners lol go too far North, then Lisa and I could bring the dogs up for the Hadley Downs experience then?

Speak later

Kirt & Lisa

wendover woods looks lovely - plus there is a pic of 2 GSD's on the home page - so its meant to be....
I would love to come and bring Luna - but I think she is a tad too young still for the distance...Apollo is just a puff and would be abit overwhelmed I think by some of the more adventurous dogs ....However Im looking forward to the pics already Smile
