Well done Simon!
Well done to Simon on completing his Local 100 hills. In his own words he took the leisurely route - 40 years to be precise! He had myself and madfrankie to chauffer him, carry his bags, guide him and mind him on his journey to the last hill. We kept the cattle away who eyed him hungrily from across a low wall. We were also priveleged to share his special celebratory 'summit tipple'. We picked up the various things he lost on the way up, and helped him spread the word of MountainViews to the Czech Republic. We did our best to protect him from the ticks, and we smiled encouragingly as he took those last few faltering steps to the rather nice and historic summit of Baltinglass Hill. It was an honour to accompany our Fearless Leader on this symbolic walk.
