Doodlecat's Homepage

Picture of Doodle - a 
black cat

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!

The Outdoors Station

Just to let you know that we have added a link to Bob Cartwright's Podcasts on the TGO Challenge page - well worth a visit. If you like what you hear, why not pop over to The Outdoors Station and subscribe for Bob's regular podcasts and videos? Something different to take your mind off the daily commute.

New on Doodlecat!

Join Mike Knipe on a series of monthly walks through the Howgill Fells. We have kicked off with the first three months (September, October and November). This is to bring us up to date, as from now on each monthly walk will be published in the right month - so December is published next, in December, followed by January in ... er ... January, and so on. You get the idea.

So, if you're looking for a different day out from the lakes, why not venture to the other side of the M6, and explore the Howgill Fells? The Howgill diaries are in Random Doodles, and you can start reading them HERE.

A Winner!

COLIN BENNETT is the winner of the Doodlecat competition!

Lord Elpus rose from his bed of pain this morning and put all the correct entries into a hat (or, more accurately, a plastic beaker) and after a good shake, asked me to draw out the winning name.

Well done, Colin. Lord E cunningly used a photo that was taken facing west, thinking that would confuse the eastwardly orientated mindset of any TGO challengers who entered. How wrong he was. He lost his bottle (ha!) with the very first entries!

The correct answer was NN238694 (Tom an Eite) looking west down Glen Nevis.
