Events have rather stifled my 2012 walking plans, but here are my first six walks of the year:

This included perhaps the worst named trail I have ever done, the Pathfinders Long Distance Walk.

Hopefully I will get more walks done in the next quarter...

The following link details an RAF pilot's recovery from horrific injuries after a mid-air collision and ejection. His life was saved by, perversely, a weak joint in the chin-strap of his helmet.

An amazing read; it is well worth reading the comments as well.
