Its waiting for someone to organise it! Unfortunately I'm too busy with work and life to be able to pick a weekend and commit to it far in advance to do that this year. If someone else does that though - I'll tag along if I am free.

Hi Highland Haggis ..

I would have flown the flag for Poly this year ..if I wasnít in much the same circumstances.

Not work issues for me but body maintenance stuff due to my age and years of neglect.

Example ..Im still in recovery surgery from last week..where my gall bladder was removed ..and Im now waiting a date for more tests / procedures on kidney stones and a fatty liver. Its not the Guinness that got me .. but a hereditary condition I had never heard of until last year.

Hemochromatosis.. too much iron is my poison.... (and not the alcohol I have been known to self medicated with.)

Fortunately for me .. Im not on the scrap heap yet as the condition is treatable

I also assist another forum with their Scottish SIB outings and sadly could only manage one day last September as I got notice to go for MRI scans on the other day. I felt I let them down a bit but there was nothing I could do.

With the health service in Scotland in a similar state to the UK (My opinion only as it has taken a one year wait for my gall bladder operation while our government tell folks it should only take 12 weeks or so). I donít want to cancel any short notice hospital dates. Therefore I could not commit to organising and the worry of letting others down at the last moment.

I am certainly willing to offer route suggestions ..camp spots .. local advice to anyone who wishes to take the lead .. as I did for Poly in the past two years. I will also attend if I can (there is a very good chance I can manage but Im sure you can now appreciate ..I cant guarantee anything at present)

I do hope someone will step forward and take the lead as it was always a very enjoyable outing .. My thanks again to Poly for doing it when he could

Well! Look at it this way, when you do eventually shuffle off this mortal coil, your family could always weigh you in

Avoid the Irn Bru & get well soon

Ach..it saved many a sore head PD.. I'm doing fine too..hope to be able to drive again this weekend. thanks also for the get well soons

Thanks to you too Jeff..Im still hoping we can meet up one day

Hey..do you know anyone who could sell on a pile of black puddings for me ?

The treatment for Hemochromatosis is to give a pint of blood per week ..for a year or more.. till the iron levels drop. I hate wasting a good business opportunity ..and it could get me some beer money
