- A wee ride in the highlands (pic heavy)
Glad that folk are enjoying the thread, especially the folk whose posts/photos have inspired me to get the maps out and get out on this kind of trip.
there’s a guy with no facial hair pretending to be you on that boat 😯
Don’t suppose you have a list of the kit you took with you?
Okay, since someone has requested the geek gear stuff… I put this together after I got back with the intention of figuring out which bits I didn’t use and what could be lighter/better/warmer/different next time. Don’t think I’d change much. Lighter/less bulky sleeping bag on this trip would have been good, but the Alpkit SH600 is my only option at the moment. Would have taken a Vango Banshee tent or adapted plans around bothies if the weather was looking rubbish.
