Glen Shiel, September

To organise the club camping trip to Glen Shiel, 18-26 September.

  • Matthew Graham - 20:31 6 September 2010

    • I picked up the club kit from Joe over the weekend. I've got:
      • three emergency shelters (two 4-6 person and one larger - 6-8?)
      • OS LR33 (Loch Alsh, Glen Shiel & Loch Hourn)
      • OS LR41 (Ben Nevis, Fort William & Glen Coe)
      • two map cases
      • pair waterproof trousers
      • two Windrush headbands
      • first aid kit
      • box of head torches and compasses
    • I didn't bring a club sleeping bag as it was a bit bulky - however if anyone needs one you can borrow mine - email me if so. I'm also happy to lend other bits of my kit so if anyone needs anything desperately email me. If the consensus is that any of the above list is not needed I'll not bring it along to the pub on Thursday, otherwise I'll bring everything and people can decide then what to take.
  • Paul says: It all sounds useful. I'll take the lot.

  • Joe says: Thank you!
