Hi Alan, As I wrote to Dee below... I will be going on the trip this Sept. I live in the Rochester NY area and love Road Scholar trips. I did the Cotswold/Cornwall hikes last summer.

Alan Meeds May 28, 2015 at 12:19 PM

I am looking forward to walking the lake district in September and would like to hear from/write to others on the trip.
Adrienne Butler May 28, 2015 at 01:15 PM

You will love this trip! The guides are excellent, the scenery is magnificent, and we would go back in a heartbeat, if there were not so many other places to visit. I envy you the chance to go. Enjoy!

Dee Roe Feb 09, 2015 at 09:14 PM

Thank you for responding! That full black 'challenging' bar looked scary! Dee
Gail Binder Jul 07, 2015 at 04:21 PM

Hi Dee, This is Gail from the Cornwall trip. I am going in Sept. It would be great if you were too. If I can do this hike, so can you. From what I read there are options most days. I'll be doing at least one of the options.

Dee Roe Feb 09, 2015 at 03:21 AM

I'm wondering if every hike had level options? Can you just do 4-6 miles everyday? Thanks!
Adrienne Butler Feb 09, 2015 at 07:14 AM

We were able to do different levels everyday. My husband, who is more active than I am took the more strenuous option, while I took the easier one. There were most often three options, and people who opted for all of them,so it was not uncomfortable to take an easier one. It was wonderful, and I know you will love it! roorou

I too really wish we had the group email list. I know that Road Scholar is interested in protecting our privacy, but if all the people in a group are wanting to remain in email contact, I dearly wish there could be some institutional help with that, rather than leaving us on our own to accomplish it, and relying on one person, even a wonderful person, to make the whole thing happen.

Hello, My husband and I are looking forward to our trip this Monday. We are flying out of Philadelphia and will meet you all in Manchester.

Adrienne Butler May 26, 2013 at 09:08 AM

We are also flying out of Newark, and look forward to meeting everybody. Do you think it will be cold? It is hot here in South Georgia!

Judith Karis May 23, 2013 at 09:09 PM

Is there anyone flying out of Boston to Manchester to join this program: 5950RJ

I am flying out of Newark. But it is nice to know that someone from my general area will be on the trip. Phyllis Brown
