No Walk But A Cycle

Well I went out for a cycle today as I had no car to go hillwalking. The route I took heads up north on the A9 from Invergordon and goes over the Dornoch Firth bridge. One heads then to Spinningdale and Bonar Bridge.

The leg breaking climb up the Struie hill follows then descend into Alness and back along to Invergordon, Phew.

My cycle comp measured it at 83 Km and it took me a whoppinf 4 hours.

Checking the database I see I done it eight years ago in only three hours !

No Walking Today

CRAP No walking today. I was due to take a beginner but the strong north winds and constant showers mean't it wasn't possible. I'll have to wait for the next window of opportunity to open in the next few weeks. Went shopping in Inverness instead. Bought a wee mic for using with Skype, just a wee round thing made by Hama. Picks up the voice at a short distence but there is a bit of background hum.
I'm off to muck about with it.

A recent Wander

Near A Chralaig. Posted by Hello
I got up in the middle of the night tonight as my body still thinks it's on night shift. Thought I would post a pic of my last hillwalk a few weeks back. I'm supposed to be getting out again this Sunday but I'm taking a 'learner' with me so I won't bother unless the firecast is really good.

Well people this is my very first post. I live in the Highlands of Scotland. Married with two kids. I work shifts, not sure whether I'll say where I work yet we'll see how it goes.
Started listening to podcasts only last week and got Gmail from Murray Eddie who does Tedpod.

I have used computers since I was thirteen. I remember seeing an ad for the Sinclair ZX81 and I was hooked from then on. Never really went the computer road as a vocation it's just a hobby.

I'll expand more on my interests in future posts but that's a start...
