thanks for taking the trouble to film and edit them.
and echo the comment above I would get seriously despondent backtracking all the time to get the walk past shots especially carrying all my gear.

I have walked the WHW four times wild camping with my 2yr old jack russel "Jess" thro hiking 4 and once in 2 halves because I was called back home, so I love that Moss goes traveling with you ...( Jess when we travel on my bike does so in a dog carrier )... just one point in reference to your comments on fire lighting and you asked "why"....well im in my 60's and have ridden a motorbike nearly all my life and can tell you after rain and getting soaked I've always lit a fire to dry my wet clothes and boots and i will cook on an open fire if i have to light one and save gas, that why I travel up to Scotland because of the fire regulations , so i can see why some fires are lit.
I live down in Cheshire and am planning to do or at least try the CWT in May 2019, I liked that you did a CWT halfway food drop, on WHW i park my car at Crainlarich with food and clean clothes and get train to Milngavie...returning from Fort William , I might try parking my car halfway on the CWT, right I'll say well done to you and Moss and thanks , you have educated me and helped prepare me for my trip.
ps.... I've never replied to any posts ....hope its not overly long and it makes sense.
