Dear All, I hope that this message is received.
thanks for the info on winter meet in Scotland.
You may/or may not be aware that in the mid 90's and for a number of years
after that we met in Glen Feshie at the Hostel near the end of the road for
a weeks meet - or stay only for a few days. We had free breakfast and
either made an evening meal or booked one from Jean.
The Weather was either good or awful, or you went skiing at Aviemore
Many members turned up and it was a wonderful week etc. No guarantee for
the weather - but that is Scotland.
Bob Powney - a member - organised it- and he can give even more info that I
We all drove up or shared. One had tons of gear and evening dress clothes!!!
So there was skiing, climbing walking, fesgtering or even for Bob Adams
The drive is not too bad providing you don't speed on the A9 or get
snowbound before the two gates on the A9.
Your remarks are apt about safety etc, but serious walkers who keep low
level will learn a lot in trekking in the valleys or even up to Cairngorm -
'cos you cant use the train and get out at the top.
If you haven't been on the top of Cairngorm in a white out and a double
hooley blowing you aint seen or felt anything.
Love and best wishes to all,
