I have been doing day walks in my spare time since 2000 in Northumberland and the borders starting with friends and then a walking group. Realising how much I enjoy walking, I have gradually started doing more independent walking, and attempting distance walks and National Trails, sometimes for charity. I have also recently got a tent to use for distance walks & walking holidays.
Creating videos on my RucksackRose Youtube channel of the walks started as a way of cheering myself up during the cold, dark northern winters but some people might enjoy them. I am still learning about the countryside and about walking so am always ready to listen.
