I have been doing day walks in my spare time since 1999 in Northumberland and the borders starting with friends and then a walking group. Realising how much I enjoy walking, I have gradually started doing more independent walking, and attempting distance walks and National Trails, sometimes for charity. I have also recently got a tent to use for backpacking trips, long distance walks & holidays.
Creating videos on my RucksackRosie Youtube channel of the walks started as a way of cheering myself up during the cold, dark northern winters but other people might enjoy them. After 12 years of walking, I am still learning about the countryside and about walking, so I am always ready to listen.
