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

Ježíškova cesta, Sledging , snow tube , Boží Dar -6 to -14 feel factor down to -14

 It was fresh snow, we went to buy a new sledge , it was - 12 when we woke , leo has two sets of gloves on , he went out first !

 This is the new sledge it stays flexible down to -20,
 we use High viz jackets to help mum and dad spot us and keep us safe on the road , it has both yellow and orange , plus reflective strips on them

 eveything was coated in snow, Schnee  in German and sníh in Czech
 we had the slopes to ourselves

 I could now sledge to the bottom of the slope , it was frozen and fresh snow on top

 I sledged with Leo , we leave the pushchair at the bottom of the slope

 we put on face cream to protect the face from the snow and wind ,

 Evie and I wear ski goggles to help protect us from the wind and sun

 Evie and Leo

 It is frozen and very difficult to get up

 the reason for the high viz jackets ,
