Hi, its taken me 3 years to reach 200...2 more years to complete. Also done loads of low level walks and cycling up North, too much lovely scenery and would be shameful just to concentrate on Munros.

Congrats on the 200th, Dooter! When seeing the pic of you guys resting at Shenavall, I thought now would come an account of a bothy night full of happy banter - but then you did not only walk out that same day (I find the track out drags on forever and forever!) but return to Glasgow! :wtf: But what a w/e it must have been. :D

..well not for me as i had a 3 season sleeping bag which was rather useless in the below zero temperature. I tossed and turned for the next 4 hours before finally getting up and venturing outside

I recommend putting your sleeping bag inside a bivvy bag, a tip someone passed onto me last year when my old tent started leaking. It makes it a bit more cosy on cold nights.

I reached the bothy and got chatting to the maintenance man who was in doing some work

Makes me sound like the local plumber !

Yes I remember your group coming through, in various states of knackerment.
And something about somebody having left something at your Achnegie camp ?

I am M.O. for the Bothy, and I was back at the time doing some odds and ends following our successful workparty at the beginning of the month when 47 VOLUNTEER-DAYS were spent upgrading the Bothy. The MBA have more work planned for 2013, but this is in jeopardy owing to insufficient numbers of VOLUNTEERS.
