I made the most of this summer Poly..and in true Gurnard fashion.. I had some great adventures. It was a bit different this year than previous years ..because I enjoyed the company of others. In the past..I have been a bit of a lone wolf. Perhaps furums are to blame for me becoming a bit more social.
Here are just some highlights of my year ..in good weather..and great company.
Going round the Garvellachs with my youngest daughter
Going to Belnahua with the Ribnet guys
Kyles of Bute and wild camp on Inchmarnoch with a friend
Wild camp Loch Fyne with my brother and friends
Wild camp at Loch Etive with an old co worker and his son
Sibbing on Loch Sunnart
Sibbing in Sound of Sleet and Sandaig Isles
Wild camping and mountaineering at Barrisdale with a friend who hadf only two munros to do before completing them all (282)
Round Lismore with another bunch of Sibbers..civilised caravaning ..not wild camping
And the last wild camp on Loch Etive..a few days ago.
I had a few very good single day trips too..both with the Quicksilver and the Seago Slat floor. I still have the Slat floor on the go for short ventures. But the trailer for my Quicksilver is needing new tyres..and the axles are looking very corroded.. so Im not risking towing until I get all that sorted out.
Sadly.. I never managed Skye this year. I fell down a mountain and it scuppered me for a month ..perhaps thats when it rained ?
So you see Poly.. I cant complain about the summer. Its not been the best.. but I have had worse. I will be available for more SIB outings next year ..just let me know when..and I will be there.
Its car camping season now..and heading north for munros..I have only done 59 this year.. so far
Now what was that about poor weather this year ?
