Is it time to become a Rambler?

You’ve spent your whole life in an office, a factory, driving or working on a shop floor. Now that you’ve finally retired, why not get out there and walk the Great British isles and become a rambler. It’s certainly something that the people living in Park homes will tell you is a good idea. If you take a look at  Gloucester Park Homes for Sale at http://www.parkhomelife.com/our-parks/orchard-park-homes-gloucester-gloucestershire/ you’ll see that they certainly have a good base to come back to afterwards! Rambling is a great way to keep fit and take in some beautiful sights to help you with mindfulness.

It doesn’t have to be an expensive business going on a ramble. One of the best ways is to join the Ramblers Association and go along and meet some new people. The route will already be planned out and the ability of those attending is considered. There are so many established walking routes that you can go on like the Hadrian’s Wall in Northumbria or Offa;s Dyke path which runs from Chepstow in South Wales up to Chester.

You will need to invest in a few things to make it easier. First of all you will need a decent pair of stout walking boots as they generally go out in all weather. A packable jacket is a good idea as well. You will need to put that somewhere and a twenty five litre rucksack or daysack is also important. To take the shock of the knees two walking poles might be an idea or a decent walking pole on it’s own, although many will tell you a handy branch is just as good.

 

If you fancy going it alone then buy a walks book or realy splash out and get a SAT NAV.
