Big loop on rough ground, rain came on after the first hill and stayed on so we were soaked :roll: Decided to leave the extra SIM after the last summit (Tom Meadhoin) as we were running out of daylight :roll: Made for a straight-ish line down through the trees, following the river til we joined the walking track at the bottom... only that track was pretty much covered in tree fell, not easy to find, so we ended up picking our way through mushy bog :roll: in the dark :crazy: to get back to Sallachail and the (rickety) :roll: bridge back over to a decent track. All in, another grand adventure! :lol: :lol: :lol: And we were back at the bunkhouse in time to re-join the rest of the Meanderers for Xmas socials :D
