Near Stone Cross, Wicklow (Expand pics)
Re: Friday night/Saturday morning
It would appear Tom Milligans Friday night/Saturday morning 'stroll' is the fearsome Lug Walk. This is a 53 kilometer hike over open Wicklow mountainous terrain. it covers 17 peaks and has a total of 2400 meters ascent. Tom asked about walking conditions at Stone Cross and other points along the route. Although it is probably too late for him to get this info, I rang the army base at Kilbride. They said that the road at Stone Cross has 'a couple of feet of snow on it and plenty of abandoned cars'. He said further along towards the Sally Gap road the conditions are worse. I can only imagine what it is like deeper into the mountains. Who else has seen the images of snow-buried cars in that area on the news?

A few hundred metres plowing and trudging through deep snow would be enough for most of us. How can someone do it over 53 kilometres?!! Tom - please share your experiences!
