    A great read Bill and once again well done and a fantastic achievement.

    I agree that Drygarn Fawr is a trudge, even if only doing it as a single hill, never mind with 3 long days in your legs. Its remoteness and summit cairn make it one of my favourite hills.

    You can of course tell me to mind my own business but I am wondering about your reasoning for not having Caffeine for two to three weeks prior to a big event but then carry Caffeine Gum as part of your food/nutrition?
    Visibility good except in Hill Fog

    Cutting it out for a while beforehand is so that it gives me more of a boost when I take it on the event.
    At least that's my unscientific theory. It seems to work.
