High wind, bothy night

By 9.30 i'd crossed the Lui water and was tabbing it to Bob Scott's bothy. I'd planned to pitch the tent, but the rising wind was putting paid to that idea. A chap i'd met in the car park was heading there too, so the race was on. Past eyes reflecting torchlight back, switching torch to the red lens for that demon effect. With a clear sky but high gusts, i had a fine walk in. Turning off the track to follow the bothy path, i could smell woodsmoke before i saw the light from the bothy. Circling the bothy in case pitching was still an option, went into an 8+2dog bothy with roasting fire and chatty company. About 3 extra came in during night and stayed. I think 2 more popped in and left. (Written from my bit of floor below kitchen platform, friday night)

Hi Aktoman

What equipment do you use to blog when in the outdoors, I tried a couple of times but my set-up never seems to work.

Cheers

Hi George. I email in from my mobile phone. If no connection (like the 'Friday' one), it sits in the outbox.

The setup to email in blogs was easy to set up on Blogger, but I had a pain getting the email to be set up on my phone. But once done, it's useful. I can go in later and edit in photos, links and spelling if I need to.

On Saturday, I did some "as if live", and recorded voice using the camera's video facility. Then typed in later. The phone was tucked away in the safety of my 'sack.

Thats the problem I`m having setting up the phone, maybe my current phone doesn't work with this service.

Have you checked your service provider's help facilities? I got the server details from mine, and then email to the blogger address.

It could also be the phone or the service agreement, not allowing email. I haven't investigated blogging via SMS as an alternative.
