I had started to prepare a long post about medical history and motivation and inspiration and stuff, but decided to just cut to the chase. On Monday evening I packed the Jag for an overnighter and headed off up the glen.
I found a perfect spot beside the river and set up the tent. The next morning I packed up again and came home.
That’s it really.
So, what did we learn on the show tonight, Craig ?
Well, I know that I can get everything I need to keep me in reasonable luxury into my old Jaguar E54.I know that I can walk uphill for two miles with a 10k pack and two miles back downhill the next day.
I re-learned some basic tent management such as how much water i need to lay-in for breakfast.
“So, it was a success then ?”
Well, more like deferred failure.*
“But did you enjoy it ?”
Aye, I suppose it was alright, like. **
