chuffed with myself

  1. i'm so chuffed with myself last week i did the West Highland Way from start to finish 95miles over some of the best countryside in the world (i'm slightly biast here as i'm a scot) and after you've walked the 95 miles you get to climb Ben Nevis, and the only injury i'v got is a few midge bites, i'm waiting for photo's and will post them, cause i know when you see them you'll all want to do it

    Is being "chuffed" a good thing or a bad thing? Sounds like you made a huge accomplishment. Congrats to you!

    Chuffed is good. That's a lot of work, over some difficult country. Ben Nevis is the highest mountain in the UK, over 4,400 ft, but it's totally different to hiking at that elevation in this country, and that's at the end of the trip!

    Congratulations, chrisrob!

    Well done! If you ever do the last 95 miles of the Southwest Coastal path (the East Devon and Dorset bit, known as the "Jurassic Coast") I'll buy you a beer in Poole!

    Off topic, but I have to ask --

    My kids (15 & 19) and I want to visit Scotland in March (it's the only time we can all go together). Is it going to be too cold and/or snowy to do any outside things then? I'd appreciate any tips, things to see, etc.

    We're planning to go to the Glasgow area.

    well done chris rob. U have made such a big achievement. I would be very proud of myself if i done what you did. The most i have done is the walkathon which is organised by our local radio station and that was 25 miles. That killed me my feet were covered in blisters. The money was raised for local charities.

    i live just outside glasgow, the weather in march is probably gonna be wet and cold and maybe snow but we've had freaky weather last couple of years so you may get sun, theres plenty of things to do even if the weather is bad but then i'm a roughie toughie woman of the Clyde :chuckle (nurse in a shipyard)
