Not by blood. However I had a load of cousins who lived in South Elmsall and their Nan was my 'adopted Nan... My own grandmother (a Geordie) was an unspeakable tyrant.

So I used to spend a few summer holidays in Yorkshire...as well as Sunderland with my aunt...

Re: Where does your username come from?

So my username comes with a slight obession at the time with sheepdogs. Which I rarely see (dogs herding) these days even though I'm in the middle of several farms as the farmers tend to use the quad bikes instead.  

 

That and I don't actually own a dog. Or sheep. Though the odd sheep has randomly appeared in our front garden when they escape.

Re: Where does your username come from?

[ Edited ]

Marjo seemed keen that I tell you where my username came from.  The very simple answer is that when I first started posting on forums I used to walk up fells at a weekend. 

In addition, twice a year a group of 4 of us used to go to the Lake District on a Friday after work, to camp in the valley in a proper campsite. Of course, there had to be a pub within staggering distance.  On Saturday, we packed up and headed off up a fell, aiming for a flat piece of ground somewhere in a col or by a tarn so we could pitch the tents for the night.  A meal of something pre-made such as Yorkshire Stew*, followed by an evening of reminiscing under the stars, aided by whisky or Southern Comfort.  Breakfast would always be bacon, eggs and tomatoes, washed down with copious mugs of tea.  Sunday would see us finish the climb to the fell-top, and walk down again to the valley, our cars and onward to home.

We've been up in all weathers, from gorgeous sunshine to p***ing wet rain, and snow.

One time we camped in a col near Bow Fell on several feet of snow.  The views were incredible of the southern lakes and the coast as darkness fell, followed by more stars than we'd seen since we were young lads.  Hardly a breeze, it was warm enough in our sleeping bags.  Those with less effective camping mats found they had a lovely body shaped hollow in the morning.

Another time was at Angletarn Pikes, south of Place Fell.  We found a flat spot in a dip with beautiful springy grass. Luckily one of us had to get up in the night (too much water with the whisky, I reckon) and noticed that we were no longer on springy grass, but in a stream.  That meant a hasty re-siting in the dark.  The following day the fells were streaming water, and the path down was more like a river than a fell-side.

Our last ever walk was a soft one, we thought, in the Derbyshire Dales. It was getting harder to meet up as we each had different calls on our time, and two of them had moved to the south of England.  It was Easter, and we had a wonderful evening in the local pub with a log fire burning. We were woken as dawn broke on Saturday by the tent roofs, which were sagging under the weight of snow (not in the forecast).  We managed to push my Citroen BX (it had pump-up air suspension so that it could lift the body above the snow), but the other cars needed the farmer's tractor to pull them out. We got to the pub as it opened, but were thrown out at 2 and not allowed back in till 6!  All the roads were impassable, unless you had a 4 wheel drive tractor.  Not even landrovers were getting through.  The farmer let us sleep in his barn, until his wife made him let us sleep in the lounge!  The following day the thaw had started, snow ploughs had done their job, and all was well.  We never did get our walk down Dovedale.

 

November is a popular birthday month for us posting on this thread!

 

* Yorkshire Stew was actually Locro de Trigo, an Argentinian stew, but Alan, with whom I shared a tent and alternated cooking the meal we took up the fell, refused to eat foreign food.

Re: Where does your username come from?

Hey that's awesome thanks for coming to post about your usernames too guys!

 

I have a confession: I previously had a mental image of you as a mixture of a sheep and a dog, @sheepdogSmiley LOL Until @Martin-O2 (laughed at me and) told me a sheepdog is a dog hearding sheep. sweat smile 

 

@Fellwalker sounds like a lovely activity (apart from that snow!) and a wonderful time you've had with your colleagues. I used to love camping! Well I still do, just haven't done it in years, sadly. So now my mental image of you is a guy cooking bacon, eggs and tomatoes in a campsite under the stars with lots of tea. Smiley Very Happy

Re: Where does your username come from?

I'm a little late to the party but better late than never yahoo

 

My username is abviously my first name but there is a little story behind it. I was meant to be called Clementine, and my mother says that when I was born I "whispered" Emilie to her. I'm not sure how much of it is true but I find it quite funny smiling
