WALKING MIRACLE – SCAVENGER WALK AUG 22ND 09
Scavenger Walk 2 was a success. That’s the miracle. Firstly because the Jackill and I prepared the night before entirely on beer and Cabernet Sauvignon and secondly because either side of Aug 22nd, Noah was sharpening his adze. Yet on Scavvy Day, the sun split the trees in the morning and teasing clouds uncovered breathtaking vistas across Northern landscapes, Irish seascapes and Co Down townscapes in the pm.
At 10 sharp,12 Scavvies hit the road up a raging Glen River, topping a lucky (sic) 13 at the Icehouse with the parachuting-in of maclimber and his endless knowledge of things Mournes – and to another miracle: a heartwarming although sickening hugging match between old mvs rivals, himself and the redoutable dhmiriam. The fall of the Berlin wall pales into insignificance against this event. And a star-studded mvs cast it was: some along with their lovely soulmates, some solo. The affable, recovered and fit dbloke; the mountain mine of info, ahendroff; the mesmerising airborne changeling dhmiriam; the free encyclopaedia that is maclimber; direct to us from the Spartan Bedsox the great Steve McBride (aka unknown), the completely irrepressible wicklore who turned out also to be Scavvy 2’s Meandering Man disappearing off Donard and reappearing innocently later like Bobby Ewing (just to get the story straight); even making a guest appearance, our beloved leader the monumental simonfree, Simon Stewart – and of course Jackill and myself. Glorious moments included herringbone clouds a thousand feet below us on Donard, the mountain panorama from Binnian to Beg and prize of the day goes to completely boggling coastal views from Commedagh’s airy Pots of Pulgarve. A saunter off, back to the Glen River and straight into O’Hare’s pub. V good. I don’t know if there will be a Scavvy 3 – but I know a man who does ….
