Scavvy 4s or the Meelmore High Club? Spot Meandering Man. (Expand pics)
SCAVENGER WALK 4. A HIGH POINT.
After a bit of a to-do I have snared the dark daw, fired him into a cage and covered it in black cloth. So we and today’s subject are protected from his venom. Bleck Cra of course and the subject: Scavenger Walk 4. There is only one word adequately describes the Scavenger Walk 4 of Sat 14th July. “scuse me folks he is babbling something about “tropical sun … seventeen smiley-faced Scavvies … mountainviews worthies and unworthies … magnificent walk … innocent new faces … more ladies yum … old faces too and some very old faces” As I was saying – only one word describes Scavvy 4. Nope – he’s off again “craic mighty … fine pace … wonderful team ... stunning scenery … no fatbums.” Leave it out Cra “evening food and drink great … Messrs Guinness, Concha and Toro love us … 3.30am lights out … and this revelry only interrupted by the heart-rending misery of Scavvies departing for home or early next day … such wailing and hugging” Yes and the one word that describes Scav4U is? But yet more cra-babble “two contenders for the meandering man prize … Sunday, a.m. never again … and then there were 4 … successful tick box walk to bag Chimneyrock or Rocky … a recce at the swish Slieve Donard hotel (again) and sad farewells” And the one word that describes Scavenger Walk 4 is ….. “EXCEPTIONAL”. Thank you Scavvies all for making this weekend exceptional, all particularly and especially particularly the bold Jackill for co-running this fab gig. Scavengers 4 were: bleck cra, brenno, dbloke with Pete, dhmiriam with Tom, dolphin, jackill, kernowclimber, mcrtchly, ptempan, simon3, wicklore. Guests: from Aonach ar Siul club Aidan and Noel; from The Wee Binnians club Julie and Eamonn. Alright Cra, you can come out again.
