I’d like to be able to post a picture of some neatly laid out gear, but I can’t. These snaps were taken just before it was thrown into a sack a week ago, since when it has been wending its way to Plockton. I hope to be reunited with it tomorrow, when I should be whisked up to my starting point, leaving Manchester’s Piccadilly Station at 6.33am and arriving in Plockton for afternoon tea sometime after 3pm, via Glasgow and Inverness.
That’s the theory, anyway.
There’s a web page with my planned route, kit list, and links to previous Challenge exploits, here. This may be helpful to anyone who decides to follow my progress over the next couple of weeks. You’ll have to bear with me a little on that score, as mastering the complexities of the Samsung Galaxy S3 is more than a trifle taxing!
Good luck to others who have been lucky enough to get places on this year’s Challenge. I hope to see some of you in Plockton, and then maybe en route to Montrose (via Frazerburgh in my case).
Have a good one…
