How does one log walk reports now?

The same way you asked this question! By adding a comment against the walk. The walk transfers to the "recent walks" page shortly after it's happened so you'll probably have to look for it there. (Click the big red "Recent Walks" button). There is guidance on the page on how to add walk number and weather info. The only other think to remember is if it was a walk posted by Mr Tiger, you say nice things about it. Anybody else, say what you like.

N=7 plus 2 late runners arriving at lunchtime. W= Mild and mainly dry underfoot despite rain early am before setting off-sunny pm. Pub food excellent but very long waits for food-40-50 mins!
Wonderful scenery no problems with route directions and a very enjoyable day out in excellent company.
