These are the Epic Adventures and Travelling Tales of Ian Cai Mercer and Mr. Tiberius Tiglet.
Ian Cai Mercer is an Antevasin, a wanderer, writer, poetic lonely soul and philosophical rambler.
Seeking out New experiences, new destinations, to Boldly Amble where he’s not Ambled Before!
Tiglet sometimes offers an alternate perspective, and can even take over too.
There is something to be said about getting your feet out of the door and going on a great big Adventure.
As I am particularly fond of the Grieg sketch with Andre Previn from Morecombe and Wise, as Eric said- “I’m playing all the right notes, not necessarily in the right order, I’ll give you that sunshine!” So here you’ll find me referring in the videos to hikes I have already done, but maybe not shared yet. Don’t worry though, it will all become clear. At least clearer than at the moment!
So, to catch up on places been to, I have edited a few hikes from last year I didn’t originally post on Youtube. The (nearly) Circular trail for Woodhouse Hill and Helsby Hill was from 50 Walks in Lancashire and Cheshire by Jon Sparks, AA Publishing 2005. So the book is a bit dated. I haven’t actually done many walks in the book and actually went off this partway through.
This time I missed off the Iron Age Hillfort remains on Woodhouse, following Joes path rather than the section of the Sandstone Trail I have hiked along before.
I wanted to end the walk atop Helsby Hill, but the rain put me off, but it was a good hike, a lot of musing over places I’ve been and ideas of where I’d like to go. Of course, little did I know back then that I’d spend the next seven months doing staff cover, so all my little walking plans went bye-bye like Dorothy in a hurricane.
So, another mini-epic over and done with, what’s next?!
