Hmmm. I was invited, and have perhaps foolishly accepted, an invitation from The Pieman along with a cast of thousands to Daunder from Peebles to Moffat in the Scottish Borders. I was assured by a TGO Vetter friend of mine, hailing from Tranent, that the TGO Chally Co-ordinator himself used to favour this particular walk, often completing it in one day. "So, to take two and a half days should be a doddle then" I heard myself thinking as I blithely wrote to accept the invitation.
Oh deary me.
There are currently blizzards over these hills, coupled with widespread flooding in the Borders. So looking at the route, flooding should not be too much of a problem then, as we seem to be walking up in the heavens, eye to eye with the satellites. It's where all the BA aeroplanes used to fly in the olden days before the crazies took over the asylum. Camping up high, in the air, in the cold. I want my Mum!
The route follows the thin blue line. The little red triangles are places I think we might be able to get the tents up, subject to reasonable weather. We shall be walking Saturday afternoon to Monday evening this coming Bank Holiday weekend. I have yet to re-seal Wanda, buy any food or gas or get anything organised. Situation Normal.
The maps don't necessarily point north (a cardinal sin, I know!) so don't go cricking your neck, now.
