I've started my 2021 Challenge blog. I wasn't feeling too chipper this year, having had a scond kidney transplant just three months prior to starting and my blood count was a tad on the low side. It made for an interesting route selection - not one I would normally choose.
There are six blog posts so far:
TO SHIEL BRIDGE
SHIEL BRIDGE TO GLEN AFFRIC
GLEN AFFRIC TO ALLT A' CHROINN
ALLT A' CHROINN TO FORT AUGUSTUS
FORT AUGUSTUS TO THE RIVER SPEY
The next day is now posted
RIVER SPEY TO GLEN BANCHOR
As Blogger has an aversion to me commenting, I’ll comment here: splendid read.
The Glenballoch question.
Ugly, white & selfish.
A young lady? In my room?
Damson gin & Champagne treats
A hard day, downhill all the way...
DAY SIX: TO KINGUSSIE
Ambushing Lord Baltimore
Warm and dry or the maelstrom?
DAY SEVEN: TO GLEN FESHIE
From Doggerland to the Chest of Dee
Rapid heating and ploughing
Desertion and regeneration
It's all in the day of a TGO Challenger.
DAY EIGHT: TO TOMNAMOINE
Memories of Maria van de Flugt
Smith & Hawkes
and Lord Elpus
DAY NINE: TO BRAEMAR
Braemar: Coffee, lunch then afternoon tea before setting off, late as usual, for Loch Callater Lodge's annual meet.
Getting into position for a big day tomorrow.
DAY TEN: TO LOCH CALLATER
With less than four weeks to the start of my Challenge this year, I thought I ought to get a wiggle on and finish my write up of last year's Challenge. Here are the next two episodes:
TGO CHALLENGE 2021: DAY 11: TO CLOVA HOTEL
TGO CHALLENGE 2021: DAY 12: TO CONLAWER HILL
Here we are then; I've finished a TGO Challenge write-up! The link below takes you to the last two days of my Challenge from Conlawer Hill to Brechin and then the coast!
DAYS 13 AND 14 TO BRECHIN AND LUNAN BAY
For completeness, I've arranged all the blog posts for my 2021 Challenge on one page. All you need to do is click on the link for each day's post and it will open in a new window for you.
