A good day for Dan in terms of fitness on the hill, job done by 4pm despite the tracker staying stuck on Meall nan Tarmachan; he's down off the hill I promise.
Eagle eyed tracker watchers will notice a couple of moments today;
1. Dan dumped his pack to summit Stuchd an Lochain (Munro number 2 of the day)
2. He went beyond Meall nan Tarmachan and bagged Meall Garbh (not a Munro) before realising his mistake
Still, not a problem, just part of the learning curve and a reminder to be a little more attentive.
Tomorrow is a massive day with 12 hills in the schedule with big gaps to navigate. Nigel will be with Dan for at least four of them. His day will end on the Hill of the Fairies far to the north east of his starting point. The schedule promises big days for the next few weeks as he passes in to the Cairngorms. But Dan's realistic, to finish is the aim, he's felt in the groove over the last few days but knows he's still relying on energy levels, the weather and avoiding accident or injury to maintain his current steady pace.
