Happy New Year!

January 1st, 2013 · No Comments · Uncategorized

I hope that 2013 is a great year for all of you! I’m sure that it seems like it, but I haven’t really forgotten about this blog, and I do have some further plans for it in 2013. It’s likely that I will be doing another TGO Challenge crossing of Scotland in May. That’s not […]

It’s really finished now – back home in Utah

May 30th, 2012 · No Comments · Uncategorized

Lisa and I and our two oldest granddaughters, Erin and Anna, flew from Louisville back to Salt Lake City today and are now home in Midvale.  It seems both good and also a little weird.  It feels in some ways like I’ve been gone for only a few days, and now pretty much everything seems […]

Finished!

May 27th, 2012 · 2 Comments · Uncategorized

Well, so much for posting more frequently.  I guess I’m probably pretty much convinced by now that blogging regularly in more or less real time during the course of a walk like the Challenge isn’t very feasible – at least for me.  But maybe I can find some better strategies for the next opportunity. It’s […]

Catch Up

May 20th, 2012 · Comments Off on Catch Up · Uncategorized

This is Sunday May 20th. I’m in Braemar. I got here yesterday at about 6 PM, after a long day of hiking from the Ruigh-aiteachain bothy in Glen Feshie. Met and re-acquainted with a number of folks, including Gordon Green and Alan Sloman and a number of others. Didn’t see Andy Howell last night, but […]

Day 3: Iron Lodge to Alltbeithe

May 20th, 2012 · No Comments · Uncategorized

Sunday was the day of the “big gale”. There were huge winds and gusts, and constant driving rain all day. I’m told the area received over 3 inches of rain in less than 24 hours. Most people on the TGO found inside shelter, it seems. Alltbeithe was a real haven, and I spent the time […]

Day 1: Inverness to Strathcarron

May 12th, 2012 · No Comments · Uncategorized

This was supposed to be the start of my walk, but it didn’t quite happen. Had to do more work before I left Inverness, and then I had to finally sever the lifeline and post my MacBook Air on to Newtonmore. Made it to Strathcarron at about 8:00 PM, and finally decided to spend the […]

Day 0: Glasgow to Inverness

May 12th, 2012 · No Comments · Uncategorized

Was supposed to get to Strathcarron today, but didn’t make it because I needed to get some work done and I spent a lot of time at the Post Office. I had to post packages to Montrose as well as intermediate points. Took the train to Inverness, but could get no further that day. Stayed […]

Day -1: London to Glasgow

May 12th, 2012 · No Comments · Uncategorized

Flew back to London and (almost) immediately took the train to Glasgow. Actually, I just barely missed the 8:30 AM train I was scheduled on, but got the next one. The youth hostel I stayed at was good.

Days -3 and -2 Heidelberg/Leutershausen Germany

May 12th, 2012 · No Comments · Uncategorized

The next two days (through very early Wednesday morning) were spent with our friends Thomas and Angelika Wetter. Another lovely time. Thomas and I did a nice hike on Tuesday – very nice, and a bit of further prep for me.
