Entering the Third Age is no excuse to slow down or to cease striving for adventure.
The idea behind this group is to inject an element of adventure into our lives, to travel and to share the experience of our well-traveled membership in order to extend our horizons and our comfort zones. We can have adventure both here in the Peak District and throughout the world.
We can develop 'micro-adventures' in our own back-yard. Have you ever gone on a moonlight hike or slept under the stars in a wood or on a hilltop? We can do this in the Hope Valley and still get home for a cooked breakfast. Such an adventure requires minimal equipment. To this end, we are planning a night hike from Hope to Castleton and back starting at 7pm on Tuesday 12th November, (contact Paul McGreavy if you're interested).
The Adventure Group spent three weeks in the Sultanate of Oman during October 2018. We drove two 4x4 vehicles from Muscat to Salalah and back to Muscat, a distance of some 5000km. In doing this we spent time at various points on the coast of Oman; we also ventured into the mountains, climbing to around 3000mtrs on Jebel Shams and Jebel Akdhar in the north and at a somewhat lower altitude in the Jebel Dhofar in the south of the country often sleeping out under the moon and stars. We also spent some time at the Outward Bound Oman Desert Centre in the Ramlat Sharqiya.
Paul is taking bookings for a trip in early 2021!
Remember that close to home or further afield, adventure is a state of mind!
