More welcoming than expected

Although most of this area has poor access, due to landowners not welcoming walkers, I had a great experience today. Went for a run up Truskmore after work using the RTE mast access road. Had to climb the gate with all the signs on it, figuring they wouldn't be working after 6pm. It was really windy with dense cloud at the top, out of the gloom came an RTE engineer in his jeep, scaring the life out of me. He gave me a big wave and we both went on our way. As I was climbing back over the gate to my car I spotted a note on my windscreen, thought it might be a note about access or rights of way. But no it said "Well done! Not an easy run" Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/201/comment/6461/
