Maalie in Scotland

After a rather hectic first year of retirement, Maalie feels he needs a break. Accordingly, he is escaping to go camping in Scotland for a few days. See you all next week.

You bring a whole new meaning to the word "retirement". I live in hope of one day doing the same :-)

Hmmm. I expect I will need to wear my long-johns and socks in my sleeping bag at this time of the year. It's no challenge if there;s no ice on your tent.

Ah yes, I remember it well! And I recall that the tin had a chance to warm up to a decent temperature!

The words "camping" and "Scotland" were never meant to sit next to each other, add in the month of "October" and certain people may fear for your sanity. Take this from an original Aberdonian, 'tis a sure sign demensia has got you firmly in it's sights, bonny lad!

Ah well, don't say you weren't warned. Enjoy (shudder).

I had to wear long johns inside my sleeping bag, inside my swag in the middle of the Oz desert in July! So, been there, done that, but we were lucky enough to not get the ice like they had the week before!

Poor Maalie. You really need a holiday. I hope you have a nice restful time.
Don't forget your hotwater bottle.
Love Lorenzo.

I remember eating the most delicious scallops in Scotland, the best ever caught in a local loch. Watch out for Nessie.

What, no electric blanket? ;-)))

Hope you did not forget this!

Have a great time!

Surely you will be sleeping in your X-trail and running everything off the ciggerette lighter, including your tartan electric foot muff.

Aren't you back yet? Maybe you just need an extra day on holiday.
