Today, the 26th February 2019 and the weather in Ayrshire was 15 degrees Celsius. That is normally a Summer’s day here. It was glorious, and the first walk I have done with OiR this year.
It was a challenge, but it needs to be, to get me fit to do Kilimanjaro in less than 6 months. The leader had decided that we would do Black Craig and Black Lorg. Black Craig is 700 metres above sea level, I am not sure how high Black Lorg is, but they are 2 distincts hills, so i am saying that I did a Munro today, and nobody is going to tell me I didn’t. The combined inclines most have been over 1000 metres, as it was a long way down from one summit, to then climb to the top of the next, as you may get the impression from these pictures.
The team from Comic Relief are currently climbing Kilimanjaro, and I can say that here in Ayrshire we drew the long straw for the weather.
I hope you are enjoying these posts. In 4 days time I hope to do a real Munro. Fingers crossed the weather stays with us.
