I received an email this week letting me know I was one of the lucky ones to be accepted into the TGO Challenge! As an ex-pat like John Muir (see above photo of us hanging out together the other weekend), I can’t wait to go home!
I can’t find the words that match my anticipation…it’s been an obsession of mine for over a year now. Something about going back to where I was born and walking across the Highlands for 2 weeks enthralls me. I’ll also get to visit my mom’s resting place near Glasgow on the way in…a real pilgrimage for me in my 50th year.
Now let the planning really begin…plotting a route over hill and glen will take up many of my winter evenings when I’m not under pack.
