A Walk on the Wild Side

Dickie Bird, a Club member, entertained members with his amusing but frank account of his walk on the West Highland Way. In his presentation he explained that this had been done with his 2 sons, Mark and Tim, together with Paul & Sheila Biscoe.

His account of the weather, torrential persistent rain, accommodation, no electricity or hot water,  and hardship, 20 miles a day, made uncomfortable listening for many of the less than active members of the Club.

Overall it was clear that Dickie enjoyed, in hindsight, the experience and adventure but has decided that will be his last long distance path.
