Welcome to the Navy Net aka Rum Ration

  1. From Wasdale Mountain Rescue Teams Facebook page today:

    This doesn't surprise me, I lived most of the last decade up in the Lake District (I know Snowdonia is just as bad) and the mess and rubbish left behind by hill walkers was sickening but it was always worse when a three peaks type event was held (a lot are badly organised).

    What's even worse is when something goes wrong its unpaid volunteers in the Mountain Rescue Teams that have to sort it out, even though the MRT's are charities they never seem to benefit from three peaks type events anyway.

    If your planning such an event please take heed about the damage being done.
