I am helping a pal who is out on the hills on his own. He is out for a week chasing hills. He leaves me his route if possible texts me on the summits and when he gets off. He is a top Mountaineer but sees the value in telling folk where he is and it helps his family when he is away. That is so important that family have peace of mind no matter how experienced you are. Families do worry so it’s pretty easy to set up a system with a pal.
It’s a good system I do it and ask my pals to cover me when I am out alone. As I am not on the hills just now it’s easy for me to keep an eye on him and his trip. Today he is on the Cobbler this time with a pal. They will have a great day.
He says the snow is hard going just now as have a few other pals that are out on the remote hills. It’s all good to know as this cold spell hits.
He sends me photos every day and I have to admit a bit of jealously but I have too continue to take it easy with my heavy cough. It’s so easy to have a slip just now with the amount of ice about or the day being made longer in the heavy snow conditions,
I see the great photos but I am so lucky to live in such a stunning area. I can walk in the forest or by the sea every day. Yesterday there was someone climbing at Cummingston my local cliff it was bitter cold. He seemed to be enjoying it.
