Congratulations !!!!

After that first walk on Meall Chaich I thought I'll not keep pace with this guy and made it my ambition to walk with someone older than me, well that hasn't worked so far, well maybe Monty LOL

It was a great day meeting up with many faces and names that I've chatted too but yet to walk with, so best I change that !!

Rounded off with a great evening, and there's nought wrong with a cheesy DJ !! Although I must confess I'm sure some of the Munro's are easier than all that Orcadian Willow malarchy Jeez !! And yes I was one of those lost at the start !! Still always room for improvement in that dept. and the evening wasn't long enough for me to demonstarte some f my 'moves' which is probably a blessing for you nice folk !! :lol:

So the end of a journey, I'll keep plodding away, keep tabs on that Plooy now one ahead and gammy just a few behind me, maybe a joint compeation in the offing ?

Keep in touch as I'm sure you will, we share some of the favourites that I know we'll walk again and again. Been an absolute pleasure meeting, chatting and walking with you and hope that continues.

All the very best to you Spider.


Yeah Dave we will get out again at some point. You share some off the same favs as me. But i promise next time not to walk to fast :lol: :lol:
Yeah the party at night was over far to quick :(
Think we all need to brush up on our dancing. Mine was shocking :lol: :lol:

Congratulations, and a great report. Wonderful that you're doing the Mountain Rescue training - we've great admiration for people who do that. Perhaps we might see you some time when we're in Torridon (hopefully not on the wrong end of a rescue!).

All the best,

Daniel and Clare (Torridon_snails).
