I could be accused of always being on the lookout for ways to do established walks that little bit different; or adding a twist to them. Go that bit further than you’ve gone before in terms of distance.
The ranges at your back door are easier to manage as you’d have a better idea on the logistics; particularly if you’re on your own.
What time will you start? How long do you think it will take? Where do you want to be when it’s dark? Water? Food? Change of footwear? Which one of your walking buddies is going to pick you up at half five of a Saturday morning and ferry you back to your car?
A great learning process. Just go out and do it, make the mistakes, and learn from them.
