by jupe1407 » Fri Jan 01, 2016 10:00 am
- Get down to my last 100 munros
- Camp on either Suilven or Sgurr na Stri. Preferably both
- Do the Mullardochs over a late summer weekend
- Finish the east of the A9 munros
- Have at least one bothy night
- Continue to improve my landscape photography
- Wild camp at Loch nan Eun
What's everyone else hoping to achieve?

Summit Camp (I've been promising myself this for years)
Get better at taking pictures
Just keep enjoying myself when out and about

Suliven or Ben More maybe both but not on the same day
Walk from Elphin to Lochinver
Bit more of the CWT
And get a bit more hill fit

But things I would like to do this year would be
The AE ridge
A summit camp
attend a WH meet

Summit camp is high on the must do list ( pun intended )
To score at least one point in the photo competition at sometime this year
28 munros. Funny number but it will take me to a nice round total.
This will all depend on the possibility of a clean up operation on my knee or even a complete knee replacement.

Walk the Lairig Ghru with a wild camp along the way
Expedition to the Fisherfield
Try not to panic at turning 40 in April

Go to Rum,
Corbets round about Loch Hourn
Scrambles Up Garbh Bheinn
Scrambles up the north face
Go back to Seana Bhraigh from Ullapool/Deargs direction
Scrambles up Fuar Tholl
Go back to the Dolomites for more
Pick a mid summer walk/summit camp which goes to plan, and not get soaked or ill.
Help Dad and Dougie increase their tallies
Happy new year everyone

Perfect that amputation technique
Drink more rum
Ensure the rum is not always gone
Circumnavigate the globe again
Find where I buried that treasure
Find where everyone else buried their treasure
Climb some hills
Refloat the Good Ship Caberfeidh
Get Grandad's old sub fixed
- Refloat the Good Ship Caberfeidh ~ you have a few rums and it all goes horribly wrong...

32 Wainwrights lined up for this year, if I've counted right - the 18 remaining southern ones, including Scafell Pike, and 14 western ones - which will take me to 2/3 done, give or take half a hill!
Otherwise I'll try for 10 Munros again, and those last two Pentland Marilyns, and another weekend in the Moffat hills. I'd like to get along the coast from Seaham to Redcar or Saltburn, because I've got my eye on the Cleveland Way for 2017, but getting through Middlesbrough is going to be no fun! The Berwickshire Coast Path would be nice, but I've been saying that for years, a trip to the Cheviots or Howgills or Yorkshire Dales would be nice, Arran would be nice, but I'll have to see what fits in.

here we go with another schedule
Depending on whether I can get a bit fitter...
Complete the Donalds
Get to 110 Grahams
Cuillin ridge traverse
More wild camps

Also like a few people have already said, need to get back to doing some summit camps, a winter camp up on Braeriach would be just the ticket
by Sunset tripper » Fri Jan 01, 2016 9:20 pm
So here's my list in no particular order
1. A 2nd but successful attempt on Ossians cave. see below
2. Revisit Eigg and Rum.
3. Walk to the top of Ben Nevis from my front door in Inverness
4. Cycle from Linn of Dee to Blair Atholl
5. An east west traverse of Suilven over the 3 tops with a lot of exposure, probably with a rope and someone to keep me right.
The next 2 are outwith Scotland
6. Walk the narrows in Utah
7. Stand on the top of Half Dome in California. It's been on the list since I looked across at this view several years ago
Half Dome ~ Elev. 8843ft
8. A wild winter camp on the beach at Sandwood Bay watching the northern lights and hopefully avoiding the ghost of the ancient mariner
I guess I will be lucky to do half of these this year and that will be the less ridiculous ones.
Happy New Year
