Hope your well because my legs are killing me! and yep I have no one to blame but myself. It was my choice to drive seven hours in a mini bus with seven other crazy people to walk up Ben Nevis for six hours and then drive the six hours home again.
Ok it was soo worth it! I had a great time and such an amazing sense of achievement. We were planning on doing the three peak challenge next year but after that I'm quickly changing my mind. For those who dont know the three peak challenge is to walk up the tallest mountains in England, Scotland and Whales in a mere 24 hours. That's Ben Nevis, Snowdon and Scafell Pike in 24 hours and each should take five hours and one will be in the dark. Yep its going to be as scary as it sounds.

I wanted to tell you all about the amount of stupid people we saw on our walk with trainers on, very little kids in toe, no bags so no water, no food, no waterproof clothing and not even a warm fleece. Now we were super lucky with the weather but if we hadn't been so many people would have created a nightmare situation for themselves and the amazing mountain rescue. I really couldn't get over it there was even people like that walking up at we were walking down going on six o'clock.
