TGO Challenge 2010 More Rescued Photies
Here’s a few more – basically this is the second day during which, despite early morning sunshine, I decided to go forth Eastwardsly instead of too much in the Upwardsly direction. Strangely strange and a bit odd to say that this time I was proved right and it rained. I walked to Loch Arkaig, put the tent up in another shower and dozed off. There was little excitement apart from the energetic nature of some of the showers and some right lazy cows sitting on the path. Luckily these were docile despite being heavily armed in the horn department. Beats being heavily horny in the arm department as its important to be well focused on the job in hand on a long walk like this. I wonder what I’m talking about sometimes…. Not much distance was covered yet oddly odd and a bit strangely, I was now about half a day ahead of myself. I think there must have been a time/space continuum problem during the night or something. The pictures are roughly in sequence. Despite the lack of effort, I said hello to my first blister. During the night I arrived at Queen Street Station without my backpack which I must have left in the kitchen at home. The train driver said he’d wait but I’d have to be quick, so I went back for it. No sign of Kylie. Surely she knows how important this walk is…..?

I used to have my pet dog Bruno with me (in the front page pic). he was Superdawg but he died. Now I have Lucky the pup. He's a bit like Bruno, only smaller and more suspicious.
