Despite the fact that its a beautiful sunny day here in beautiful and sunny Crook, I’ve been spending my time doing some more TGO Challenge planning.
I’ve submitted my route to Roger Smith, who says he will try to give it to a sympathetic and lucid vetter (that cuts a few of them out…)
In the meantime, I’ve been planning my food plan, which is something I always do before a trip like this – i.e. what meals I’ll need to carry on each stage and where I’ll get them from.
It looks very much like http://www.outdoorsgrub.com/ will be getting an order from me shortly – I need to start off with 3 days food, and I need to send two days food to Dalwhinnie – then there’s my April practise trip – all-in-all, around 9 days food.
I hope the table makes some sense – I copied from Excel. I know what it means anyway….
