It has been a while since I posted anything, this is due to work commitment, but I thought let me take a breather and start writing again. So I thought I would post about the recent social meet I have been to at the usual Monsal Head(as the basecamp). Well as part of the tradition I got stuck in a some heavy traffic, but it was nowhere as bad as the one before.

Arriving at Monsal Head I pitched my tent, which I somehow still have problem with, then meet up with everyone. It was very interesting meeting new faces like Geoff, Shaun(Rosenrott) Shaun and Tony(Sawyer Filter), all interesting to chat with and enthusiastic as well. We had out dinner on the camping ground and then went for a drink at the pub. I must say I was completely knackered with the driving and soon started nodding off, but it wasn't before having a couple of pints of apple juice and a whisky. After that we went back to the camp and I probably had the best sleep of my life.

The next day we got organised and off we went for our day hike at Stanage Edge, which was decided the night before and as well due to the low level it would suit my dodgy knees. As you can see from the photos we were lucky with the weather, as it was not really good the night before. I must say that I had been itching to hike at Stanage Edge for quite a while and it sure did not disappoint me. It is truly a beautiful place to hike and camping as well. As the saying goes, a photo is worth a thousand words, Peak District keep surprising me all the time.
