Still grinning

I'm sore all over. I feel like I've gone ten rounds with Tyson and I've got to go to work this afternoon. Kit is being admined very slowly as I hobble around the flat not looking at the dishes in the sink and drinking endless cuppas. One thing is for sure though, I must get get fitter and maintain it!


I'll write this up later...after work with a wee half...or two.


  1. Ah, so I'm not the only one who managed a frosty camp this weekend. I too was hobbling around after a swift descent and an hour sat in the car driving home...

  2. Howdy Mcalisterium, nice blog. I haven't seen it before, added to the side.

    There was a load of folk oot n aboot at the weekend. I met a few friendly faces in the Real Food Cafe on Sun afternoon for a catch up and hear about everyone's exploits. Funnily enough though I only met one other bloke on the hill.

  3. Cheers BBF, I'm kind of new to it, so we'll see if I can keep it going...

    I've not been patient enough to link to everyone individually yet, at the moment I'm just showing the 3 latest posts to my Google Reader Outdoor Group, you're on there now :)

  4. Wow, great shot of the SL3, gotta be the best SL3 shot I've ever seen and I've seen quite a few! Sod the dishes and house work they can wait! :-)

  5. Great shot, almost retro looking. Did you use it single skin and if so how was as far as draughts were concerned? curious as I'm leaning towards a single skin myself.

  6. Cheers guys, the conditions up there were perfect. I took so many photies that I had to go put the kettle on while I waited on them uploading from the camera!

    The tent was fine, there was enough of a breeze to gently flap the silnylon every now and then but it was very calm all night. That said, I had it pitched low on the windward side and was inside my MLD bivi so never felt any drafts.

  7. Good lad.

    That was a pretty special weekend we all had there.
    What's been on my mind today is "What next?".

  8. Aye it was, one of the best "mountain" weekends I can remember for a long time in fact.

    Whats next eh? Well I reckon I'll be out on Saturday around the Arrochar Alps again but not for an overnighter. Got to spend time with the family etc.

  9. hi which camera are you using????????? thanks peter

  10. Hi Peter,

    It's a Panasonic LUMIX DMC-FX100

    A cracking wee compact camera with a slightly wider angle lense. I'm a point and click photographer so the "mode" settings help out a lot.
