About Me

Winter Hill ,Horwich, UK
About Me Jake ,I am 11 years old and have Autism. This Blog is about what I can do not what I cannot,sometimes people think I cannot because I have autism ,this blog is about challenging that!I have lots of special interests, in particular running, exploring and this blog shows a small amount of what I get up to! Please be careful as some of activities I do may look easy are not , I know Winter Hill very well I can get off safely and know what to do when the weather closes in ,to keep myself safe I use high performance clothing and footwear,waterproof/ breathable/reflective/thermal layers. in layers so I keep warm and dry , I take my safety seriously and I always take care when out exploring. My dad is very experienced on the fells he is teaching me how to keep safe.I can use a map and compass, the hills can be windy , very cold, be wet , misty and boggy. STAY SAFE! check out under my link's for advice on safety from Bowland and Pennine Mountain rescue. Try my Winter Hill Challenge

Old reservoir?

me running on stone- to practice running across  loose rock and stone

old mine remains near the winter hill mast  ?
old wooden walkway

old brickworks at back of the mast 

old bricks found at old brickworks 
me wet and muddy after running between the mast and the Pike

dad very wet and muddy   -my dad was waist deep LOL, we had to clean up in a stream otherwise my mum wouldn't let us back in the house 
dead sheep that got stuck in the mud you have to be careful on soft ground !

at last  the pike 

4.26 miles , rough terrain, very soft ground due to rain  , -very boggy in places !, sunny
