I'm with the experienced vetters over the importance of a FWA - who wouldn't be? But my outlook is that this second route is not just for rubbish weather - it is also for emergencies, kit failure, injuries etc and invaluable in terms of 'ground appreciation' so one can find escape routes from the 'good weather route' if required. Sorting out the safest way down/through is an art in itself, and I've also enjoyed the challenge of trying to link a FWA back to the planned primary route without too much diversion over the next day or so - as this is seldom straightforward, perhaps this is why FWAs haven't been so well addressed?
By the way CJ - the RAF version of all the Ps is 'Prior Planning and Preparation Prevents P!ss Poor Performance - Perhaps!'
Highland Park, Mr Grumpy?
A fine tipple.
You are right, of course, it may well give me a heart attack if I had to stand you a pint of Highland Park.
But, and I have it on good authority, Andrew will also be in Torridon, and he is a man of means.
You can easily recognise him - he's the one with loads of money, buying rounds like they are going out of fashion. And, amazingly he will not let anyone in with a chance of buying him a round back.
That's what I call a really good man.
Rumour has it, too, that he managed, with aid, to submit a reasonable FWA ............. but, we'll not go into that one again.
Andrew and his magic wallet will in fact begin his challenge on a Calmac ferry heading west - yes west with two thirsty hangers-on.
Of course, Phil.
I knew we were getting the O/N sleeper on Wednesday 8 May - and my mind forgot that Andrew was going to Oban. Rumour has it that he will be in the Bree Louise beforehand - buying drinks all round for all and sundry. What a good fellow.
He'll no doubt call into the Pierhead Hotel to flash the cash too - what a fine soul he has.
But, the good news for Mr. Grumpy is that Andrew is a hardy soul and will get to Montrose for sure.
He can be recognised as he will be the one with loads of money, standing drinks all round at the Park.
What a gentleman!!
It would be very helpful if you could post Andrew's room number on the notice board at Control as then we would not have to bother him when buying drinks on his account!
Didn't know the scullery had a number…
Why do I suddenly feel like a victim?
Luckily I have not got a room at the Park.
But I believe that Phil does... Just sayin.
We will publish that particular room no at a later date.
What do you mean Andrew? As I read it everyone is saying that you are a nice generous chap. I can't wait till May to find out how right they are.
