"Where have all the Ploughers gone?" from jackill Expand pics
Where have all the Ploughers gone? (Expand pics)
Its only a little one
Long ago and far away a young scavvie , his mind addled by Arthur, made a promise to Wicklore “ Yes you shall go to the Faha Ridge” .
So we find ourself short of a sit down on the Connor pass at 9am on a Mayday.
A damp Cra later , a call to the Bloke and we were off.
After a while we tied up Wicklore but got bored and let him go again.
I did ok on Faha but went down instead of up on the way to Pierasmore which my fine feathered friend never mentioned again (God bless him and all who sail on him).
We dropped out of the cloud at Faill an tSais to a sea of saturated blue sweeping the sand banks of Tralee bay to fantastic Fenit.

On the tarmacadam home again I felt the contentment of a long day in the hills and as the few last spits of rain fell they laced that bleak watery hopelessness that comes from knowing that all these fine companions belong to the shovel and the worm, as do I.
Conversation on big holes on the hill, ballcocks and plumbers, flying Scotsmen and crashing buses will pass.
Remember my friends to join us next time, we’ll be dead long enough.

As the bleached bones of a scavvie are examined what now my love, now that its over? Scavvy 4 somewhere north in the middle of the year? A little more notice I can promise as the Cra, being half norman, is more organised than I and well versed in invasive operations.

And thank you my friend for shortening the long road

Croagh Patrick: Cold climb
Wilderness 11 hours ago.
I was wary of the dark hail clouds that kept hitting the mountain. Some of them looked thundery. Fortunately there was no lightning and a'lot of people about. When the clouds moved away the views ...

I am sure like many of you, especially simoburn, that the addition of the Arderin Begs while technically needed, added loads more summits to climb. This one is, well, a real hard sell. I was tryin...
