The LION will serve you well and you'll not look anywhere else for quite some time. As for wlking make sure your good with map and compass cos if early nights distances like Goathland and back are a push, you may be travelling back in dark or near dark. also if cloud drops..well, you prob know the score . Enjoy your stop I AM JEALOUS! stuck at home on tyneside finishing a degree. PS straight down to LION to celebrate when passed though!!!!!
