Updates! OMG.

Tuesday, April 22nd, 2008

Front Update time. The new car is ABSOLUTELY FLIPPING BRILLIANT. I’ve been driving it for a few weeks now and I can honestly say woo. Woo I say. The best thing is the Air Con. It was the hottest day of the year so far today – Not as hot as where it might be for a lot of people, but with the sun out it seemed even warmer. With the Air Con on, though, there was no need for any windows to be electrically brought down!

I went Quad biking at Catton hall on the weekend. It was brilliant. We turned up a bit early, after overestimating the drive time, but a guy was available, and so it was just us three on the entire 15km course. They’re very easy to drive, as they were automatic. It’s quite the thrill, and I recommend it to everyone, provided you’re over 18.

Last weekend we’ve started preparing ourselves to walk up Snowdon. I could probably do it now, as long as you know that there’s no turning back, but when there’s a car waiting for you back in the car park, the temptation to turn around when tired can prove too much. (Personal experience, Moel Famau) – Which leads me to think we need to park in Llanberis, and take the bus to the Pen y Pass pathways, so we need to press on to get home. Anyway, while walking up a random hill last weekend, I discovered a valley filled with bits of industrial past. Being a sucker for abandoned industrial equipment, I took some photos:

Looks like an old Aerial ropeway!
