Week 2 has had a bit of everything. I have been joined by Russell suitably after partying at Carol and Ross's wedding which sounds like a hellluva party, it took Russell 3 days to get over the calfs!!! Congratulations, you guys.
walked big grassy slopes through glencoe, glen etive, Glen creran, glen orchy finnishing with the 5 corbetts just north of Tyndrum, 17 corbetts in total. I got
lost in a forest whilst Russell rode a road bike and mountain bike together up a
woodland track. We had my surprise first birthday celebration on a mountainside
in the wind and the mist and the 2nd with some pink bubbly courtesy of Tony and
ciorsti in Oban. Cheers guys.
Wind and sunshine have been the dominant
conditions. A lot of wind!
Russell survived a day of feeling like he was
going to die, still managing to climb 2 corbetts, too much sun or the glen
Rob arrived to join us in Tyndrum, to sort out me and my food packs, he was running
around with bikes and food drops and making sure we were fed and watered.
I have now
realised my initial plan was too ambitious and have cut some days out before
joining the boat in ardrossan. Planning to do them afterwards.
Now on my own
again cycling towards ben ledi , pissing down today, currently drying out at the
kingshouse in balquidder, giving me a few minutes to write this wee update.
Thanks to russell for keeping me motivated on them big hills and to Rob for all
the running around.
I climbed beinn bhuiridh yesterday, a wee mountain bike
trip to cononish shortened the day, no 24 but found my camera phone was not
working. Hopefully it shall kick back in as Russell has now set a precedent with
all the facebook pics.
Please keep reading, spreading the word and
