All hail the mighty one! Gammy is back :clap: :clap:

Just as I was about to catch up with you, you only go and do a doubler!

So glad that you managed fine, especially since you chose the more difficult route to do these two.

Great to see you've taken Dawn under your wing. I really appreciated you looking out for me on the hills and including me in your adventures (your walks are never boring!!!)

GLW = Gammy Leg Walker? Nah! GLW = Glorious Legend Willie :thumbup: :thumbup: :thumbup:

Hey, it was great to meet you Willie and well done on getting round the two hills! It was a big day and that walk out was a pig! I thoroughly enjoyed the day with all of you guys and look forward to more of the same! Especially if you are going to bring that weather with you :D Hope the ankle and ligaments don't give you anymore grief!

Average report at best . . . only cause I'm not in it :lol: :lol: :lol:

Seriously though, thrilled that you got out again and bagged a couple new summits. I know you've been frustrated these past 6 months, but its full steam ahead now buddy!

Good to see you back in the hills GLW :D Six months is a long time :( I was off them for only 3 weeks recently and that was frustrating enough. A couple of good hills too. Perhaps underated, but a good, remote trek :D
