When a couple of days ago Carshare, aka Dave Tait, appealed for someone else to take over the Carshare blog, I had a lightheaded moment, volunteered and was immediately appointed. I am a bit daunted by the fact that I am stepping into a very large pair of Mudclaws, but will strive to maintain Dave’s high standards.

The first thing I’d like to say here, and I’m certain that I speak for all in the club, is a big thank you to Dave for writing Carshare almost weekly since, he tells me, early in 2003. That’s approximately 884 weeks ago! So… big thank you Dave! Luckily, this isn’t an obituary and I know that, once fell racing resumes, we will have the pleasure of seeing Dave loping in at the end of races the length and breadth of the country with his big grin whilst complaining about his ankles / knees / hips / back etc., before going up to collect his near weekly MV70 prize!

The Carshare blog started before social media became what it is today and was at that time an excellent way to co-ordinate and promote carsharing. Nowadays, this tends to be done via Facebook, WhatsApp groups and so on but I will be more than happy to use this blog to co-ordinate carsharing which is especially useful for newer members of the club when they don’t know many other members.

With the suspension of both fell races and club runs, there may not be much to report here for quite some time, so I’ve some anagrams for you to solve whilst you are not working from home. The answer to each is the name of a fell race. The use of online anagram solvers is strictly prohibited. If you solve all ten in under 15 minutes award yourself an off-road run, if not, get your road shoes on and hit the tarmac!
