To add to my growing archive of TGO Challenges on here, I’ve added this blast from the past. It was my fifth TGO Challenge and Phil’s first, and Miss Whiplash came along to ensure he behaved himself. I’ve lifted the photographs straight from Phil’s blog post of March 2009, only editing them slightly.
Our choice of Polartec tights, whilst proving to be eminently practical, did not win many style-points from the Challenge Fashion Police. They are now only carried for chilly nights in the sleeping bag, when no-one can see.
First-timers all over Britain (and the rest of the world too!) getting their routes in for approval might be worried about the weather. Fear not! We had beautiful weather for the first eight days, followed by a blizzard and then finishing with some more sunshine. It’s not always wall-to-wall hurricanes, even though it may seem like it from recent years!
Phil scanned the photos from prints and they have come out pretty well. You can click on each picture to make them a bit bigger
Hopefully, this might give Miss Whiplash a little nudge, to persuade her to come back for another bash.
