Doodlecat's Homepage

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 Talented Mr Smith

Steve SmithI had an email from Steve Smith yesterday, author of the Munro Diaries in Random Doodles.

Writing is Steve's hobby, and this email was to announce his bright shiny new website, where he has gathered many of his outdoor writings, poetry and humour under one roof. They're always interesting and Steve has a gift for involving the reader as he recounts his experiences.

Here are a few of the 'outdoor' titles to whet your appetite:
  • "Welsh 2000s" - The story of walking all the Welsh 2000ft mountains
  • "English 2000s" - The English 2000ft mountains I've walked so far.
  • "Scottish 2000s" - The Scottish 2000ft to 3000ft mountains I've walked so far.
  • "Footsteps" - a 32 mile walk I did on Boxing Day 2008 (re-creating a walk my Grandfather did 70 years to the day)
  • "Glenmore Lodge" - Diary of an outdoor skills course I did in February
  • "Walking Home" - a 24 mile walk across the Wiltshire Downs
There's lots more, so why not pop over to www.meip.co.uk and enjoy Steve's excellent writing ... and the occasional terrible joke.
