john and I campervan weekend at Garva bridge
7pm departure fri night - gold chip fish supper. Parked up at 1045pm.
wine, whisky and beer and chat until 2.30am - frosty clear skies.
Sat. hill mist rolled in so limited views, wet soggy snow all day - not much fun.
3.5hrs to summit including bealach break not too bad - but JC forgotten Lekis.
Spotted quality vehicle track from pylon upgrade scheme - so headed down for longer but simpler route back to van returning at 1645pm in gloaming.
Evening of soup/garlic bread/chilli and plenty more alcohol, bed by 11.30pm.
Sunday morning ignore 7am alarm call and enjoy snooze in sleeping bags.
Pedro sore feet and JC lack Lekis mean leisurely breakfast ans return via Tisos - home for 3pm.
