Scavvy V: Misty Mountain Hop
‘I’m packing my bags for the Misty Mountains... over the hills where the spirits fly’, so the Led Zep song goes. Well, myself and 20-odd other mountainviewers on the Scavenger V walk in Wicklow’s mountains did just that. And yes, it was misty, and yes, the much promised craic was legendary and the day thoroughly memorable. Along the way we were treated to Wicklore’s vivid descriptions of Irish rebel activity, slayings and hangings (Jaysus, I didn’t sleep for the night, troubled by gory visions of wild mountain men slaughtering legions of gullible Englishmen, while thoughts of hapless rebels hanging by their innards from rocks in those now quiet glens kept disturbing my febrile mind); mcrtchly got us off to a rocky start with an explanation of the area’s geology and mining activity. For those who strangely might have failed to notice, the day’s proceedings were recorded in detail by Vertigo Productions; all must wait with bated breath to see the final result appear on You Tube. I for one will be curious to know the score: flippant Black Beauty or menacing Night on a Bare Mountain?

All in all, a splendid turn out with folk converging from all sides of the island to partake in number 5 of this now legendary series of walks. It was grand to see old faces and some new (young) ones too. Dinner was a most orderly affair with no discernible pecking order and no squabbling over the prize carrion brought to our table. How very civilised for a bunch of scavengers!! Sincere thanks to Wicklore and Brenno for arranging this excellent outing and to all who participated yesterday for their wonderful companionship and fun.
