Returned home after an ace fortnight in the highlands on our first TGO coast to coast walk. We both came away with a glimpse of why people feel so passionately about it. There were gales and snow and rain and a heat wave to finish, all enjoyed and endured by some of the most foamy mouthed backpacking nutcases from all over the world. Put away your preconceptions if you think the TGOC is an overcrowded ramble - this is a real individual challenge, but the people you meet on the way make it. A must do event if you love hiking and wild camping and I can't recommend it highly enough. More later I'm sure, but until then, a big thankyou to all who walked some, all or any of the way, and especially the organisers, vetters and volunteers. Cheers!
