The Great Outdoors Challenge 2016–Tick done

The write up of my Challenge is now available here, if anyone is interested. The accounts of my previous Challenges are available in the right hand column, at the top, in date order

I had a fantastic time this year, helped in part by relatively good weather conditions, but mainly by the people I met and walked with along the way.

I’ll be back to sum up my thoughts about my journey and gear at a later date.

Here we go, again…

Well, it’s that time of year again when 300 and odd folk (…odd being the operative word there…) are desperately trying to find all their Challenge gear from last year and get it stuffed into their rucksack ready to lug it across Scotland for two weeks in howling gales, torrential rain, driving snow, ice, not to mention the miles and miles of bog…

Anyway, it is, indeed, that time of year again and Laura will shortly arrive to spend the evening with us and the night in her van on the drive before we travel to Oban together tomorrow to then set off on our separate ways on Friday.

I cannot wait.

Think of me. And the rest!!
