Picture: Sir Wicklore address to the troops. English beware. (Contract pics)

SCAVVY 5 THE PICTURE
There he sat in a big bar chair – a broad grin on his blizzard-beaten bake; a pint of Lynham’s Best clutched to his chest; a man at peace with himself; comfortable, confident, assured. And comatose.
It was one-ish a.m. on the 10th inst, Apres Walk and Captain Vertigo was a portrait of the righteous satisfaction of Scavenger 5, courtesy of the wizard Wicklore and his bouncer Brenno. And so the night of the day that went before was coming to a delicious close (excluding ”Vitamins” Vincent Fitzgerald and his weeping lurv box who are reported to have serenaded a hatch of big-busted Dubs well into the dazzling daylight.)
No wonder the courageous captain was effed: he and his smouldering video camera had shadowed the whole shenannigans from kick off. A mesmerizing turnout of mviewers and friends, from gauche and giggling Scavvy virgins to hard-bitten old Scavvy broilers like the Jackill, Wicklore, Dbloke, Simon3 and myself: and hard at our hooves, the mercurial young pretenders, kernowclimber, mcrtchly, dhmiriam, tom and dolphin.
A great long wonderful meandering boggy trail over various sodden tops, to the Shangri La of Log na Coille and home to self satisfaction.
Heavy moments included farewells to sunlight below, farewells to Scavvies booked that evening for other duties and farewells to Simon and my car door locks thanks to some local scumbag, hoody bollixes.
Lighter moments included our leader doubling back once, bearing North and going South twice and relating the demise of thousands of English troops at the hands of the rebellious Irish at least thrice.
We went out with 25 and came back with 26. Magical or what?
Thanks to all Scavvies for your wonderful company and to Wick and Bren for a truly great day.
