What can I say, Wullie,the very least is well done on your 100th which you have fittingly put into a report of that is worthy of your walk. A great acheivement given all that has happened to Elizabeth and she will be so proud of you. :D
Also as a man of the rock you give everything to your walks and what a wonderful walk you have produced.

Well mate what can I say, What a fantastic report 8) Some of the photography in there is amazing :wink: :lol:
Seriously though mate well done on the 100 its been a long time coming, I have seen the gammy leg pushed to the limit on severel occasions and sometimes wondered if you would even get this far so im really happy for you but please stop using me as your wee sherpa on the big hills, "carry ma poles down this hard bit", "take my camera and take pics of me scrambling", "get that out of ma bag........ now put it back" etc etc :lol:

So glad we went for this for our 100th, This will live with me for a long time as will the weekend we had :D
Obviously I sympathise with you for Liz I know its been a difficult time recently but I know her and Lisa really love the peace and quiet when we go away :lol:

Thanks for a great day and putting up with my bad hangover but I know you enjoyed being way out in front of me :D

Cheers mate
Alan

PS
Thanks to all who have congratulated me on my 100 :D and to Polly for my whisky :D

Congratulations on your century and a great mountain to do it on! :clap:

Love your report and photos but specially love the way you talk about your amazing Elizabeth. It's obviously been a tough 3 years but she'll have gained so much satisfaction from your hill achievements - even though she can't be out there with you. All power to the pair of you. :thumbup:

Better late than never - congrats on the 100: you picked a mighty fine mountain and great weather for the occasion. But most of all respect and all the best for Elizabeth. She sounds like an amazing woman.
