Another TGO Challenge Awaits

13051709stream2ali

Today I will set off with a car full of re-supply parcels destined to be dropped off at various points on a rather wiggly route to Montrose, where I’ll park the car and get a train to Morar, taking 14 days to walk back to Montrose by a ‘low level’ (ie less than 12 Munros and Corbetts) route, starting next Friday.

That’s the plan, anyway. I’ll be posting brief entries along the way, which is shown roughly, together with my kit list, on this web page.

The esteemed route vetter who is shown above demonstrating a river crossing technique on last year’s Challenge, will be seen by many of us on this year’s event, hopefully proffering a tray of cakes…

And just before I go, some good news. Our swifts have made it back to their nest by this study window – I can hear them sorting out their belongings after having arrived overnight.

Meanwhile, Sue is sunning herself in Turkey on the Lycian Way – have fun Sue…
