Oh how I wish I'd come along...feeling the effects of too many staffroom chocolates and not enough exercise (not sure surviving the school Christmas party counts!)

Next time though. :thumbup:

Like that second pic Louise, about only time I was in front ! Taking photos of course holds me up !

Glad Monty explained that last comment from Dooters, had me thinking, given I'm a London boy you can imagine :lol:

Nice shot of me losing the leg, how comes the cameras were never ready when Monty went flying :D

Looks like a good day out bagging the three munro's and also a good excuse to celerbrate a 50th. Its scary that this time last year we have an almost identical photo with spiderwebb taking the place of sunhowfar traversing towards the climb towards The Cairnwell. Nice one!!! :D

Haha Dooter - You've spoilt it now!!!!! found this very funny as I knew what you meant and knew others wouldn't. It's a yes though anyway but not very often :lol: :lol:


Thanks for all the nice comments especially with it being my first report, even if I cheated just putting photos :D

Here's to the next 50 :lol:
