Doodlecat's Homepage

Welcome to Doodlecat, where we enjoy the pleasures of life (with a slight bias towards the outdoors). This page is regularly updated with news and views plus information about any additions or changes to the various parts of the site. It acts as Doodlecat’s Blog too, so the odd rant considered opinion may pop up from time to time.

I would love to be able to say that Doodlecat is all my own work, but it isn’t. Much of the outdoors content is courtesy of the splendid people who participate in the annual TGO Challenge (there is a section entirely devoted to this unique event) and many others.

To help in tracking down that elusive morsel on Doodlecat, the search facility under the title bar above is tailored to help you find it, either on this home page (Doodlecat's Blog) all the rest of the site (Main Site) or – if all else fails - the internet!

So have a rummage around the old cat basket and enjoy your time with us!

Fran and Ann's Big Birthday Party

lone tree on the limestone pavement Ewes Top

For the Ann & Fran's Birthday Party Weekend Big John had organized a walk from Ribblehead back to Ingleton. So at the anointed hour we all tumbled out of the cars at the carpark, while those who give us our lifts up returned to suitable decorate the hostel for the party that night (thanks Allen!).

It was a fine crisp morning as Big John lead the way over Blea Moor, while our group ,with McGregor, took photos of Ribblehead Viaduct. It was on the ascent of Knoutberry Hill that Big John's dog formed a strong bond with Waggy, in fact every time the dog seen Waggy it strained at its leash to greet his new found friend.

Taking a break on West Fell

After Whernside our group split, with the ruffty tuffties going on to climb Ingleborough and the rest continuing along west fell, before descending to Ingleton. The unkind might suggest the the ruffty tuffties only went to climb Ingleborough because there is a pub on the way. I would of course not utter such a slur, but can report that the Cains Best Bitter had a distinct toffee taste, in the pub at Ingleton of course.

Some photos of the walk and birthday party.
