Launch of Website

Today saw the official opening of our website; exactly 6 months before we take our first steps on the West Highland Way. It’s been under wraps as we’ve been building it, but this blog started early so that you can follow our progress from the start.

We’ve also received our first donations via JustGiving; many thanks to our supporters for these. We’ll be reaching out to more friends and colleagues in the run up to the Festive Season. As you read this, please think about friends and family who might support us, and direct them to this site.

All training hikes are done now until the winter passes. Storm season is upon us and it’s certainly not the time to be out on the hills. I wonder what happened to that gym membership? Perhaps going up and down stairs at home with a backpack on is an effective substitute.

Hints about the need for boots, socks, and layers might just produce some results around the 25th December…
