BEN THERE WISH I HAD A T -SHIRT
For once no jokes no castigation of fellow walkers but a short tale of hill top bliss, and a few pains. To the west 2 weekends ago with a trusty band of crusties and a few young'uns (a 'fellowship of the ring'-without a ring-) to fulfill a lifetime ambition to 'do' the bens and turks. Planned to an inch of its life by the commander all flowed well and a welcome pub in Clifden by 7pm of a friday evening much craic, black stuff and chips. The butterflies in the stomach and weak knees(well I am old) as I gazed with disblief at a clear blue sky above Binn Dhoire Chlair, (how often in the west no rain!)the long awaited nirvana beckoned. It didnt disappoint rock, dust, scree, sweat ,pain and more but worth all to do the round taking in Binn Bhan with the mile long scree and ending on Binn Leitri as the sun glanced off the every day of the year lakes of roundstone bog. Thanks to the gang as I would not have done it otherwise and a very sore leg gave a slow descent but the view for company made up for it. I could go on but you may have lost your last meal by now! all codology aside its why we do it, those who don't have no idea...their loss. To end we also ran through the middle turks on the sunday but thats a story for another day suffice to say simons own excellent website route description and pictures of the turk challenge route made it seem like and old friend even for the first time. Adieu until something funny comes along
