Last week I got an email from John Manning confirming that my TGO Challenge route has been given the OK by my vetters. I had to add some clarification to my original submission due to a duff grid reference for a wild camp. Apart from that I got positive feedback from Issy and Les, thanks for your input guys. With the route sorted out I am now really looking forward to my second crossing. The train journey to Mallaig has been booked (my first time on the Caledonian sleeper) and I have secured a couple of b&b’s in strategic places along the route. Some time prior to setting off I will outline the route in more detail and describe the planning process.
Anyway, there will now be radio silence for the next two or three weeks. My wife and I are jetting off to Thailand on our honeymoon on Thursday, after our marriage yesterday. A lovely memorable day.
