Thursday 12 May 2011 - TGO Challenge Day 0 - Montrose to Oban
The usual melée at Queen Street station was followed by a most sociable train journey to Oban, waved off by Messrs Smith and Shiel, in the company of the majority of the 57 Challengers who are starting from there tomorrow morning. I forgot to buy a baguette, so lunch included Stilton and crisps, washed down with a very palatable bottle of red wine, courtesy of Poor Michael (Mike) who turned up dutifully on the platform at Queen Street.
It has been a day of sunshine and showers. We suspect that the latter may prevail over the days to come.
Then Gordon managed to gather a quota of about a dozen Challengers in the Light of India restaurant here in Oban for an amenably sociable preamble to the walk.
Great to meet up with friends old and new, today. There's a bit more effort needed tomorrow...
