There’s activity despite this weather. Down in the Lakes the OMM is still on, despite 17 feet of rain yesterday. I know a lot of folk down there right now and I can only wish that The Rage of The Titans fuels their blades for the next couple of days.
Also, on the road North right now is Bobinson. He’s doing the latest West Highland Way-Fast and Light. My own trip is a mighty bookmark in this years activities and Bigbananafeet’s recent successful attempt brought it all back with tales of feet and mishap.
Bobinson is setting off in the worst possible weather, and he should be hitting the very worst of the worst on the most exposed stretch on Rannoch Moor on Saturday.
He knows his stuff and he was bouyant enough yesterday, so I’m confident he’ll prevail. You can watch his progress via a link to a SPoT map on his blog. Hopefully he’ll manage some comms and I’ll feed through the horror/discomfort/victory here as well.
The Trail Forum is coming up to Kinlochleven this weekend as well. I’m looking forward to the tales of that next week. A lot of folk are coming up to the Scottish hills for the first time, and it’s going to be memorable I think.
Me? It’s uncertain where my destiny lies this weekend. I have a backlog of this, some untended that and some other that I haven’t even looked at.
I think to ensure that adventure lies at the end of next week there might be some biting the bullet, knuckling under, taking it on the chin, but hopefully there’ll still be some time for kicking against the pricks.
