Almost finished

2146: Wednesday night

Not a lot left to do, now.

1. Cascadas arrived.

2. Have arranged to have Recolites sent to Oban. Major kudos to the mind-bogglingly helpful young woman at Run For It in Glasgow!

3. Rucksack almost packed.

4. Tent dry enough.

5. Charging phone batteries now.

6. Boxes sent.

7. Jacket and smock drying downstairs, post reproofing.

8. Most of the train tickets packed. Still haven’t decided whether to shell out £12+ extra for train from here to Preston, or whether to take the coach. Tim and Kate will be on the train.

Still have to:

1. Finish packing train tickets.

2. Tidy the house, which looks like a bomb site.

3. Have dinner.

4. Make sandwiches for tomorrow.

5. Sleep!

6. Make the mic cover. Ugh.

I may make the sandwiches now, and cook dinner, and then go to bed. Get up early for a tidy round. This is comparatively organised for me…

The good news is that Daddy’s even *better* in his new place now than he was a couple of days ago. When my sister and I visited today he’d been down to eat with the others (!) and was sitting in a lounge chatting with them!!! He said to us, “I think we’ll keep this place.” 🙂 Less than a week ago I simply wouldn’t have believed it possible. Whoohoooooo!

    Have packed at random. Might open pack again Friday night and see what’s in it. Think there might be a tent in there somewhere. Not too sure about the rest.

    I see we are both in about the same place with the packing etc!
    It’ll be a relief to start the walking!

    Good Luck! Hope we bump into each other at some point!

    Am starting from Oban on Saturday so still have a couple of days to go. Kit is in loft but food is bought and most things are where they should be.

    PW – have fun.. Must be a great weight off to know that your dad is in such a good environment now.

    Am soo jealous of your trip. Look forward to the report if you can muster up the time and energy to write what must be quite a challenge in itself..

    Would be interested in kit lists and how you got on with it all if possible.

    Best Wishes and good luck !

    Well…that’s it , you’re on your way!! Weather up to usual Challenge standard, still the nagging doubts that you’ve missed something. I look forward to your usual humour in your blog. Remember to check you have everything BEFORE you leave each morning as, going by your previous Challenges, you seem a bit fuzzy in the mornings!! Have a safe one.
