A Bumpy Ride

Apologies for the access problems to lately – it was due to a transfer of domain registrar which didn’t go quite as planned, leaving the site offline for over a week! We’re back up and running now (as you can see) and I hope your hike planning goes well.

We’re moving again

Hopefully you won’t have noticed, but we’ve moved webhost again. If you can see this, then you’re using the new system.  I haven’t managed to do any updates that I had planned for 2012, but this is the first step and, time allowing, I’m excited about redeveloping THED and making it even better.
