Didn't Bill Bryson say something like in A walk in the woods? .... life takes on a neat simplicity....we cease to have any worries etc.....all that is required of you is the willingness to trudge.

Your report has brought back many happy memories.
I really must get round to writing up a TR of our GR 20 adventure.

Dave...it was, in a way, a bit of a prompt for you to send a report .....I knew that you were all going to the island in August to savour the delights of Corse I did try to make contact through the internal mail thing but somehow it, maybe, didn't reach you. Look forward to seeing your report and images. I was thinking about your beardie and how he would manage. In 2007 we came across an Australian lady at Manganu refuge, with a dog, and they had come down from Calinzana so I guess that they completed the traverse....didn't meet up with them again....but that seems to be it, you see loads of folks each evening at the refuge/camping areas and during the day very few. I guess that you just need to double up on a stage and them a gap developes.

Ah yes I remember the Drumochter day well gaffr. Not often you go hill bashing with a walking hotdog!
I am indeed in the USA, a world away from the Scottish Highlands, but I'll be seeking out more mountain adventure over here......

As someone who considers France as almost a second home and who knows most parts of the "mainland" very well, it is to my immense shame that I have never set foot on the island of Corsica. One day that will change, but it won't be summer 2012....
