An Encounter with Mick and Gayle
Today my role is as a courier.
Parcels are being deposited at various places in The Highlands.
One such parcel was for Mick and Gayle - their dehydrated meals for the first section of their TGO Challenge. I did not expect them to collect it in person, but having completed their Lowestoft to Ardnamurchan walk yesterday our passage through Fort William coincided sufficient for the courier service to be extended briefly to a Glen Nevis taxi service.
M+G are pictured here, deliriously happy after completing their 'East to West' walk, and looking forward to their TGOC adventure which starts from Strathcarron on Friday.
Well done, both of you, and enjoy your rest in Fort Bill.
Readers may be relieved to know, as were M+G, that their maps for the TGOC were in the package that Gayle is clutching. My own maps have now been posted to Oban, so their fate is in the uncertain hands of the Royal Mail. Thanks, Sue, for coming to the rescue!
Thanks also to everyone, especially the Alans and Louise, for your messages of encouragement. They are all very much appreciated.
Now then, next stop - Drumnadrochit...
