Hi folks, I just wanted to say hello. I am a 44 year old, overweight, beer drinking, lazy person who has recently discovered the challenges and joy of hillwalking.

My very humble accomplishments so far are Ben lomond 31st May, and Beinn Dubh 13th Jun. I hope to make this a regular thing - hopefully losing a little weight in the process.

Oh - I just remembered I climbed Tinto hill many years ago, when I was MUCH fitter - Does that count?

Welcome! I'm carrying more than a few lazy extra pounds of my own - and I blame beer for all of them...

Keep heading to the hills and you can use your wok for cooking instead of ironing shirts, and have a great time as well :thumbup:
