    Hi SB,

    I'm fit as a butchers dog But it's not about fitness with these mountains.

    They are genrally short steep routes, just a steady plod. With stunning views and

    who in thier right mind would rush them.

    I could be tempted lost sheep, I live near the Chester le street - Sunderland junction on the A1

    I would agree with SKint Bint that Im not very fit either but a good plodder,

    My issue is weekends , can't get that many off since I work in retail and I already havewhat I can for Scouts. Not saying I can't ever do a weekend tho

    Getting a couple of days off during the week is easier for me , Dont know how that fits into your plans?

    My worry about this particular pastime is where on earth you can stuff the Munro when you have bagged it and how on earth will you carry it home? There are an awful lot of them too LS, scattered all over the place, so where are you going to start?

    Name them in order? Not from memory but I have a copy of the SMC book which has an alphabetical index. The first 7 start A' and a quick glance at relevent locations suggests that my suggestion might not be the most environmentally friendly option.

    Yes I can somedays do weekdays too. In fact I am looking to try and get a couple of long trips in to justify all the travel. I had a great trip in the Cairngorms in 06 where did 4 days about hills and bothies fo Cairngorms and saw nothing but arctic hares. Weekday trips rather than forcing yourself up things at the weekend whatever the weather are a great way to do Scottish hills.

    Lostsheep - all 3 depending on location. Alot to be said for bothying and camping when you head to some of the further peaks or indeed linking up a few and having a mellow few days out.

    Count me in too Lostsheep, I plan on doing lots of munros this year with loads of wildcamping too.

    Cant make the jan meet due to work but the rest of the year sounds good. It would be good to put faces to the peeps on here anyways Im sure I owe Diddy a pint or two

    I currently work a four on four off rotating shift pattern so Im good for both weekends and mid week trips.
