Rachael Curtis comes up trumps!

Rachael Curtis presents Steve with a sizable donation to our cause outside of her Florist in Tresillian. A very generous gift on behalf of all the Oldies (despite her not liking the name - says it ages her as well) a huge Thank You!

Penair Oldies - Bodmin Moor - crossing a fence in style!

In crossing Bodmin Moor, we took the odd wrong turning. I course (with style and grace) showed the others how to cross a fence (with rusty barbed wire) carefully.

Like a Mountain Lion I'm sure you would all agree!

The Fifth Oldie breaks radio silence!

We've finally made contact with Simon "Min" Nicholls - the fifth Oldie! After a long period of radio silence he's surfaced at last! Although computer illiterate (his admission) so he won't see this update, it's good to hear from him again. Hopefully he'll join us on later updates

Four Tor Trek - Training accross Bodmin Moor

The four Oldies embarked on the hardest training to date, walking accross Bodmin Moor from Rough Tor to Tolborough Tor, including Brown Willy and Cathole Downs on the way.

After many miles (and much sun burn) we made the 10 - 12 miles miles in about 4 - 5 hours; not bad going for a bunch of old farts!
