Well, the train tickets have been purchased and arrived efficiently in less than 24 hours, the kit has been put in a pile (see above), the food supplies have been strategically stashed, the chocolate caramel shortbread (CCS) has been baked, route cards have been printed, accommodation booked, etc, etc.
So we are ready with almost a week to spare.
Our planned route and kit lists are here.
And, if you like, you can follow our blog as we amble across Scotland, starting next Friday (9 May), distributing CCS in our wake.
Some estimated statistics, just to fill out this entry,
with 2007 actuals in red:
Distance - 325 km (203 miles) / 343 km (214 miles)
Ascent - 12730 metres / 12942 metres
Munros - 16 / 2
Corbetts - 3 / 8
Grahams - 1 / 2
Marilyns - 0 / 1
Forgive me, but I'm sure I've missed something - it must be harder than this...
Perhaps you'll let me know?
...Thanks Theo - Estimated number of pubs visited = 10 (minimum) / 7 (so a more sociable route this year)
