Well that sounds like a sad tale. I truly hope they find her. As it happened I'd seen only one other person up there anyway, a woman in a white puffa jacket walking a small white dog coming off the Hill as i went up. I can't speak for the person who spoke to me, but possibly they didn't realise I'd been up on the Hill? I'd come off the Hill itself about half a mile from where the vehicles were parked, using an exit gate I wasn't previously aware of, and came through the residential estate. So perhaps they thought I was riding past on the road and dismissed the possibility that I'd been on the Hill at all? Who knows, in the end, why someone makes a decision about asking a passer-by about an incident?

But hey? I'm just some Walt who made to whole scenario up. Right?
Off topic but the route you took is pretty similar to the route I’d walk the dog a few years ago when I lived in the area. Can’t remember it in much detail but the descent you mention, I’m not surprised you came off bearing in mind the weather we’ve had recently. Fair play for even attempting it, not sure I would have been so brave smile

That. Yeah. I'm kind of an idiot like that. I often attempt things on the bike "because I can" not "because it seems sensible". Some other Strava cyclist had ridden it a few days ago so I thought "how bad can it be?" I'd previously ridden it in July, just the once, and slowly then. Attempting it in the dark, on the "wrong" bike, and after some shocking weather was not my finest hour. Which was why I ended up throwing myself to the floor on my left to avoid tumbling over the trail edge on my right. But by that time I was half way down the hill, so "I might as well go on as go back". Right? I really ought to go and ride it on a more suitable bike, in daylight, in dry conditions a few times before attempting such stupidity again. Last night's ride wasn't much safer though, despite sticking mainly to cycle paths, parks, and quiet streets. Insane taxi drivers trying to overtake me into the face of an oncoming Transit van? Yup, that happened. And an angry Zafira driver treating me to a long blast of the horn for having the temerity to cycle in a bicycle lane, wearing reflective clothing, and lit in excess of the requirements for bicycles as stated in RVLRs. I'm tempted to believe that throwing myself off steep hills, in unfamiliar woodland, in the dark is a far safer pastime, really...

This idiot is at it again. He was previously caught out telling any unsuspecting woman who would listen, he was former 1 Para, singing st dit’s about deeds of Derring-do in the sand pit. This time he’s doing likewise, dressed in fire brigade uniform, in the Wetherspoon’s in Salisbury, telling locals how he helped out during the Grenfell Tower fire incident ( and how he’s former 1 Para, obvs.) The problem is, he’s unemployed, and lives with his mum laugh . Keep your eyes peeled, if you’re in that area.
Proper walting, but my favourite line, from the Sun article quoted on the webpage is "Rachel Burton, a 36-year-old grandma, said Dall arrived to meet her at Brighton station in full Para uniform."

It seems the US has a serious problem with Walts too judging by this video:

Video is a funeral escort motorbike guy who is a wannabe cop.

Or getting asked what the training centre COs dog is called or your room number, I just made it up! biggrin
my best/worst was to be asked what REME stood for.

I was then corrected and told to repeat the true meaning, which of course is 'Royal Engineers Made Easy'

No points for guessing which cap badge the full screw in charge belonged to.

My cousin was a RecceMech in REME, I was TA Kings before joining RMP - poacher turned gamekeeper. laugh

The map of his address and all his details is a scary thing

Imagine having all that published in the UK.

Would certainly make you think twice before being a silly boy

I’ve got one! I‘ve got one!

A few weeks ago there were a few bits of flooding on a country lane. Nothing too dramatic.

I was following a chap in a LR Discovery who waved down and stopped every single car coming in the opposite direction and warned them at length of the mortal perils ahead. Thank goodness for the 4x4 equipped hero as without his help the poor motorists would obviously not see the big puddles for themselves.

I amused myself by telling the bemused motorists that they would be perfectly fine, then I overtook the Discovery in the next flooded section. The hero’s face was a picture. He wasn’t wearing HV so was unable to do more than glare at me.
