To head north or west?

by backpackingbongos

My backpack is all packed and sitting by the door.  Tomorrow afternoon has been booked off work and I will be heading into the hills with Rae for a weekend backpack.  The thing is that we are not sure where we are headed!  That is going to be decided tomorrow lunchtime at the time we set off in the Bongo.  We will either be heading north up the A1 or west along the A50.  The deciding factor is going to the weather.  To be honest the forecast for this weekend has been pretty poor during most of this week, with there being degrees of crapness to the forecast.  We are going to hedge our bets.  It will either be the Howgills / Eastern Lakes or Snowdonia.  What has happened to summer?
