You could learn a lot of stuff on Scavenger 4
This is my pitch to promote this weekends Scavenger 4 walk in the Mournes that is being led by Mountainviewers jackill and Bleck Cra. The last walk in the Mournes was great, both for the hiking and the banter. Other Scavenger walks have proved excellent too. They are called Scavenger walks as the two MountainViewers who began the tradition - jackill and Bleck Cra- are named after such delightful scavenging animals as the jackel and the black crow. You can really learn a lot on these walks! (Wait until you hear Cra's speech on blue tracksuits with red piping!) It is an opportunity to meet fellow MountainViews members, share information and experiences and put a face to those strange user names! There is rumour of a post-hike debriefing in a suitable establishment serving tea, lemonade and suchlike!

I'm looking forward to seeing old friends and making a few new ones - and hearing more about blue tracksuits! Bleck Cra informs us that the hike is taking in the 3 Slieve Bearnagh tops. The meeting point is the Trassey Track, near Meelmore Lodge, Newcastle Co Down. Kicking off at 9.30am this Saturday 14th August. For further info put up a message here on MountainViews or
email Bleck Cra at douglasreid@utvinternet.com
