The journey so far

 Section 9 – 12.5 miles

The end time given for this event is the approximate time of arrival at Witley Station at the end of the hike.

Please read the Three Golden Rules of Joined Up Hiking.

Are you OK with those? All right, then you may continue...

This is a shorter than usual hike but quite hilly and it's a long trek of 8 miles before the lunch stop. We will go at our usual fast medium pace.

We will stop at a pub for lunch or you can bring your own picnic to have nearby.

      I was looking forward for this hiking sinces the day i said yes to the RSVP, but I am one of this kind of people who doesn't enjoy hiking under certain weather conditions, so "with all the pain of my heart" i had to cancelled it when it was a fact that it was going to be raining the whooole day.

      1 · October 16, 2013

      Not soo adventurous as all the people that doesn't care about weather conditions, but not wimps ;)

    My thanks to Chris for leading and organising this lovely walk, we were incredibly lucky with the weather,hiking through a fine rainmist as opposed to the downpours in London today! I suspect the Surrey Hills may have a micro-climate all of their own ! :-))
    The walk, as always, was made by the people who came along-serious respect due and given.

      I guess it was just fine rainmist by scottish standards :-)

    What a walk! a very memorable one where we tested our waterproof clothes to the extreme.. and probably one of my best in this group (out of 15/ 16?). I was so happy to be back and able to hike again. Thank you Chris for all your work as always!

    Sorry, but if it's going to be rainy and muddy then I'll have to decline as I only have my walking shoes with me and not the waterproof boots. I will check the weather forecast again at 7 and if it changes for the better I'll text Chris and come.

    Hi Christopher. Sorry to do this especially as you were so good as to let me come at such short notice, but my legs ache after ice skating earlier. I think I was a bit ambitious. Hope to see you next time. Nx

    October 12, 2013

  • Suzanna

    Sorry for late cancellation, but I'm already ill so I don't think hiking in the rain is the best idea... Have fun!

    October 12, 2013

  • Christopher

    Hi everyone,

    Yes, there will be rain, rain, rain tomorrow. You should wear a full set of waterproofs, and proper boots so you can stomp confidently through the mud rather than trying to pick your way gingerly around it, which slows everything down.

    My phone number in case you need it is 07971 357104.

    See you at Victoria or Shalford station tomorrow.

    October 12, 2013

    • cinzia

      Nooooo : (

      October 12, 2013

  • Judy

    Looks like it's going to rain all day tomorrow :((

    October 12, 2013

  • Christopher

    Hi everyone, if you are having lunch in the pub please look at the menu: http://www.meetup.com/Joined-Up-Hiking/pages/Pub_Menu_for_October_13th/

    Please also bring or get at the station sufficient CASH to pay for your meal + drink. I will print the menu and take your orders on the train down (apart from those who shall meet us in Shalford).

    We will be stopping in the pub for at least an hour and a half.

    October 9, 2013

    • Alcina

      Thanks, Kevin.After all I am not sure I will be able to go...my back went today, and I have been all afternoon in bed drugged up with Ibuprofen! I hope I will have recovered by Sunday but it may best not to count on me! I should know by saturday if I am able to hike and will contact you then anyway. Have a good evening.

      October 10, 2013

    • Alcina

      Since my back is still out, I have thought it wise not to do the hike. Enjoy it! See you for the next one, I hope!
