REMEMBER THE VIEW?
I wonder if some of the elite on this site would be interested in coming together, to remind ourselves of the more traditional features of high level hillwalking. Unique characteristics - not marathon running, not fell running, not particularly bagging (whatever any of these are), not scrambling (at least not by that name), not ropes but endorphin driven, pub closing-time driven, lad-ism and lass-ism driven, by Wednesday craving for the mountains driven ............. behaviour.
I am talking about filling a couple of cars enroute to wherever - every cupla weeks or so - or as it takes us.
No measuring heights. No measuring distances. No ticking off. No congratulations. No recollection of any of it other than the experience, the thrill, the buzz and the craic.
In my travels through the mountains of this land, the walking clubs, the festivals, the challenge walks, I can identify maybe up to 50 of the kind of "us" I am talking about.
If any or others are on this website and would be interested in something like the above, give me a shout on the members message service under "Community".
