Most illuminating; a little damp perhaps.......but nothing compared to last years eh?*
*anecdotal evidence to be ignored as you like. I wasn't there - nor will I be
Most impressive - I think getting from the Highland Line to the East Coast proper would kill me off.
Enjoyable tale Chewie.
Just finished reading your blog while my supper cooks ( haggis ).
You have my admiration and respect after completing that Challange, just shows the weather in May, Snow, driving rain and baking sun all in the same few days .
Have you come across the Cape Wrath Trail WalkHighlands Blog about it I met a couple of folk doing it a month or more ago.
I hope you got off with doing the lawn for a week after you got back home
Thanks for the read Shewie - No hammocks this time?
Was it not a bit chilly/draughty with a tarp in that weather?
(I heard there were plenty of Trailstars this year - still not convinced myself - I'd never have fitted one on some of the pitches I had (last year) - tiny me-sized islands amogst waterlogged peat hags 3 times...)
I had a few conversations with 2 mates who did it this year - lots of snow it seems?
here's a shot that one of 'em emailed me (Monadliath near Carn Sgulain)brrr
Great write up Shewie, i remember reading your route and kit list preparation before you started.
Anything you regret taking or not taking?
Enjoyed the last hour reading that. Made be a bit envious (apart from the wet and windy days) missing it this year.
I did it last year and never thought it could be so bad again with 100 mph winds, how wrong was I!
A great report and pictures...well done.
ta really enjoyed reading that yet to do a tgo walk what bivy bag did you use under trailstar ?
Made for an interesting read, thanks.
