Dolgellau Activity Weekend

My friend Dennis had organised an activity weekend not far from us just outside of Dolgellau. It was intended to be a fairly informal affair. Basically the call put out via Facebook was one of ‘we’re going camping here on these date and will be doing some stuff. What we’ll do will depend on the...

Day 2 of our short Break in the South West and we had a day trip to Bath planned. Once again we had a treasure hunt to follow and would be searching for Pokémon too. I went for my usual early morning stroll around the local lanes and then headed back to my parents house...

Ramp Test and DXA Scan

As regular readers of this weblog will know, I often volunteer as a participant in various studies at the Sports and Exercise Department at Aberystwyth University. Most of these require a fair bit of my time to do but often prove interesting and painful in equal measure. Interesting from a point of view of getting a measure on...

Let it Snow…

We didn’t get huge amounts of snow here, but it did start snowing quite heavily whilst Morgan and I were out Mountain Biking yesterday at Pendam. Once we’d finished biking and got into the car it came down really heavily again so Morgan took a quick video clip of the snowstorm as I drove along...
