Further on up the Road...

Further on up the road
Where the way is dark and the night is cold
One sunny mornin' we'll rise I know
And I'll meet you further on up the road

- Bruce Springsteen, Further on (Up the Road).
I've covered a fair few miles this week what with driving to and from university at the beginning of the week and then at the end, driving to and from Whinlatter Forest Park, over in the north-western corner of the National Park. The reason I've been over there is because I've now started my instructor training for Adventure Forest Ltd., which is better known as Go Ape and is where I'll be working from now until the end of October. The training doesn't finish until the 27th March, but from now until then I'm not only on the instructor training, but also juggling university, assessments and a 5 Star Kayak Leader training course. However, today I managed to get myself over to Head End Quarry and finish off my prerequisites for my SPA.

The van parked up at the quarry entrance.

It wasn't such a bad afternoon of climbing. It looked like the weather had crapped out on us as when we were driving to the quarry we had the windscreen wipers on, but it all came good; the sun came out, which kept us warm in what was quite a strong wind.

Good lines, stay safe and see you on the wet stuff...
