Day 69 Kinloch – Gualin House

Manny has set of this morning with JD to do Meallan Liath Coire Mhic Dhughaill. Just as I was about to leave to go and collect the bike which Manny set of with this morning down a track for a mile, Dave Calder arrived so I sent him of to do his duties to collect the bike while I did the breakfast dishes. Chris was not feeling very well this morning, he has been here since Monday and can’t handle the pace..... Donald & Dave were going to head off to meet Manny at Meall Horn and do Arkle with him. Another glorious day today so I hope it continues for tomorrow.

As far as tomorrow goes he will be doing Cranstackie & Beinn Spionnaidh in the morning followed by a 19 mile road bike to Tongue for Ben Loyal to be in the afternoon.

Manny,
Your some man and how the hell did you get 10 weeks of your work you will be too knackered to sort out the mess that will be there.You must have a new boss rather than me he must be a very very nice man.
Will you now be in the Guiness Book of Records or just drinking pints of it.
I am proud of you and good luck for tomorrow and congratulations.

Michael
THE BOSS

I spoke too soon about the weather! John Allen, bobbing up and down beside the Isle of Rum, called this morning to say it was raining and by early afternoon it was lashing in Ross-shire, thundering over Cromarty. Good luck, Manny. You'll make it now and nobody can say you got it easy.

News from the far north.
More injury problems - not Manny this time but Brenda. She came off the bike yesterday and is in Raigmore hospital waiting to have surgery on her shoulder. Archie and Sandra are calling in on their way north and should have more news. Such a shame so close to the end. Hope the day goes well Manny if you still decide to go for it, and best wishes for a speedy recovery Brenda.

ps. looks like the stabilisers are yours now Brenda
