An epic Norman. A true classic, even by your legendary standards. And richly amusing too. Congratulations on winning trip of the month. Richly deserved and not before time. SimonP LOL, best laid plans, eh Sounds like you had an absolute blast and I PMSL laughing reading of your adventure. Nice one! [Kathy] That was a rewarding read!

Bronzebabe Monarch Of The Glen What an epic ! I think I would had lain down in the snow, never to arise. Ouakha [Druim Fada]. Another fantastic report Norman. Always a good read. [Lochcarron wee peaks]. by dalavil The next Bryson? Loved it NevJB That's the best laugh I had in a long time. Hope you are going to write a book about your adventures. AnnieMacD Anyway, your pain makes interesting reading for the rest of us. You'll just need to finish this and not leave us on such a cliff hanger... malky_c [All night & 3 days on An Stac & Meith Bheinn feat Oban Bothy]. Yikes! Am epic indeed and have to say, admire your grit for carrying on in those conditions. I was burst reading it! Kathy Did you ever get out, or did you post this via the Oban bothy wifi connection? It just keeps getting better. More please SimonP Great ! Glad you got back to post this. Would have been a shame to take it with you down some gully or other. Had me stiffling my laughter at work, especially when you were faced with the yoghurt. Do you do this intentionally? I clearly remember your Drum Fhada tale and have used that as a lesson in how not to hill walk! Ouakha Where are the Jasons of this world when WE need them? Still, it was about time your luck changed. Squiz. Aye, if it weren't for Jason of the Faslane Naval Base I'd probably be still there, living on roast bat, although I had thought of training them to carry oot wee notes tied tae their legs. Norman_Grieve An epic indeed! Thanks for posting all your travails. I have often looked at the shores of Loch Morar on the map and wondered. Now I know! I voted for a compass btw. Lochivroan Aye, the Ferocious Supervisor teld moi aboot a week ago, that she was frankly appalled by the highly irresponsible attitude of SHillers, who had until noo voted unanimously for more highly dangerous night time blundering aboot in the pitch dark with not even the bare minimum of gear. Norman_Grieve That maybe your best yet and was certainly an enjoyable read. It contains more than a hint that you might be suffering to much for your art. TundraBoy TB, aye, the father fisherman asked me if I'd enjoyed it and I replied that at times the night time traverse had seemed like purgatory. I then added that when Norma had bid me farewell on leaving, with a cheery 'Enjoy yersen'', I'd teld her that I thought it was going to be a hard one - if only I'd kent just hoo hard I might have gone back tae me bed? Norman_Grieve An epic tale and one I thoroughly enjoyed reading last night. I salute you for the effort involved ! bowlesy Laughed/sympathised in equal degree, a great story, thanks Norman. Don't go there again, it has it in for you. Benarmine Ps an epic and a marvellous read, almost full marks but the finish lets you down, imho lounging around on boats swilling beer isn't quite playing the game?. buy a big ball of string...
