I assumed he meant driving over them in a 4 by 4.

You're playing a boring game of semantics. Is it second or third grade
remote?

> Keswick certainly isnt remote!

Of course it isn't- and it's easily accessible by PT.

That's one of the ways too. We combined it with train and bike. The bike
was more for fun- not a necessity.

I doubt you would get away with that even if you found an access
point. You get one or two trail bikers (unplated) but the police are
getting quite good at catching them and confiscating bikes, they have
their own trail bikes, they look quite odd being ridden by a copper
:-) There's one or two green lanes you can legally drive, but that's
it. Its either a typo or he means the various passes, which are
enjoyable to drive, although winter can pose problems:-

the thread is called Europe itinerary, so I downloaded it, my point
was general, I'm sure it apples to the Rhine as elsewhere in Europe.

Its not remote at all. "Remote" I would use for parts of the
Highlands, like Knoydart. Its not "wilderness" either, being all
farmed.
Again parts of Scotland come nearer on that count. Theres nowhere you
are not within a mile or two of human habitation. Its just hill
country.

Its accesible by PT (I assume, I dont think theres a station anymore),
the problems start when you start wanting to do the walks. Ive used
the Borrowdale bus to start a walk to Wasdale, but in the evening I
had to get a taxi in the same place at the end of a point to point.
Still, there was a nice pub! Many of the walks start in out of the way
places of course. Basically you can probably arrange to do all or most
of the walks without driving, its just a pain in the arse. For
instance Skiddaw, most start from a car park on the front nose, OK you
could walk up to it doing a 1000 foot slog while others drove, that I
would probably think good in a way. The best route is round the back
on a minor road, i'd be surprised if a bus serves it, if it does its
probably once a day or something and you only have a small window of
start times.

How hard is it to catch a train without knowing a word of the
language? I've done it numerous times.

Quite possibly.
Its is not a grammar problem, it's a subconscious typing problem.
