SCAVVY 3
For those of us not up on the truly important events in the hillwalking calendar, may I present the “Scavvy Walk”. The Scavenger Walk was formed by Jackill in Spring 09, re-formed by myself Autumn 09; and on the occasion of May 1 2010, de-formed by Wicklore and Dbloke. The objective of the Scavenger Walk is to effect social intercourse between members of mountainviews dot ayeee twice a year, by way of predetermined walks somewhere in the oul sod. Thus, they remember why it is 6 months since they last met and wish it were longer. Scavvy 1 was a fine yomp on to Carrauntouhill joined by people we didn’t know or had ever heard of. Scavvy 2 was a bright saunter across 2 Mourne tops with a sound turnout of mviewers and partners. Scavvy 3, Saturday past, was an excellent clatter along the Faha Ridge in Dingle – visibilility on/off/on/off, scenery mindblowing, terrain medium to medium plus - and elicited attendances by 4 stalwarts: Jackill, Wicklore, Dbloke and myself. There could have been more, but Jackill couldn’t organize sheep trials in a Ballymena hoorhouse. Jackill’s tough, gritty hillwalking skills were soon offset by his debatable sense of direction (bad, bold GPS); Wicklore contributed characteristic effacement of his comprehensive capabilities and experience of things hills; and Dbloke, abiding amongst these delicious mountains contributed his endless knowledge of same and everything else – being English. We kicked off just South of the Faha Ridge, on to the lip of Brandon, thence to Mas an Tiompan, Faill an tSais and so to a tarmac return home which we hoped/thought would never end. A spectacular walk and many thanks to leader, the Jackill who is not impressed by unconstrained holiday-home erection in Dingle and banged on endlessly about ballcocks and manholes …….
