Hi there

Just joined the site last week and have spent my spare time putting my "bagged" munroes in the map! It looks good to see how many I have done. Unfortunately its been years since I did any (children) and now I live in New Zealand so not much hope of getting them finished!! Ah well, I still have the great memories of the ones I've done...the mists...the midges...the junk food...the rain...wouldn't have missed it for anything! :D

I seem to remember these things when I visited NZ, just substitute sandflies for midges. Mind you, the food wasn't too bad- apart from the mutton sausages :lol:

Haha, can't say I've seen any of those! The pies are cracking though. Yes the sandflies are a pain but we're not too bothered with them at our place. I have to say though that the summers are great here with back-to-back sunny days. Still miss my days in the hills of home though.
