Movie of our hike in Scotland
This movie shows an overview of our hike.
Scotland - Prelude
My colleague Nic had heard me talk about my hikes several times. He had never done anything like it, so in a drunk mood said he wanted to join some time. Eventually Bart and another colleague called José decided to join us. I selected Cairngorms National Park in Scotland as a destination. Three weeks before we left we went to buy hiking shoes for Nic. He bought his other gear on Ebay or borrowed it from other people. Nic and Bart also brought a lightweight harmonica. Two weeks before leaving we and another colleague who wouldn't join the main hike went for a practice walk in a nearby forest. Thus far Nic was still doing fine. José didn't join the test hike because he was in Italy with his girlfriend. There he discovered that his mother in law, which wasn't a big fan of him, had thrown out all his hiking gear. One week before leaving we still weren't sure if José actually had any equipment to go hiking with.
