A good soaking

A wet day for Dan but shorter than most so far. An early start found him on his own on the hill for the first time in a long time with the rain lashing down. Bad weather made moving and at times navigating hard work and Dan faced a couple of tricky moments on the hill, battling and clambering through deep, wet snow to make it to the summit of Ben Vorlich.

This route was followed by a reasonable bike ride out to Ben Chonzie (Munro number 50 for Dan) for another there and back route to bag this outlying summit. Dan appreciated sitting on the wheel of Ben Abdlenor's bike for both rides today, the second taking him back out to Bridge of Orchy earlier in the day than usual. The time was put to good use getting prepped up for some big days in the schedule. Tomorrow being one of them with 26 miles of running and 8 more Munros to bag. Gulp.

As I said, Dan has some big days ahead of him. If anyone fancies hooking up with him he would be grateful for some support at the end of April, the 29th, 30th and 1st May. If on schedule these will be long, slow days around the Lochnagar and Cairngorm area. If you're keen get in touch with Dan on dan munro 2014 at gmail dot com (obviously miss out the spaces and use symbols in the email address - just spam avoidance) and let him know. He'll appreciate the company.
