Corbetts: 1
Wainwright Reascents: 34
Other English hills: 11

Total hills: 63
Hill days: 35
Summit views (when all wasn’t in the clag): 20

Car miles: 4500 – petrol £ 700 (around half last year’s total)
Public Transport to hills: £ 318.35

Chalet/holiday let nights: 3 weeks – £ 1000
Hotels/B&Bs nights: 4 – £ 191
Youth Hostel nights: 3 – £ 90
Bunkhouse nights: 2 (Dalwhinnie) £22
Bothy nights: none 😦

Broken bones: 2
Months out of commission: 6

Munros to go: 24

Hope you all have a great year in 2013 – certainly hope I have a better one than 2012 !

Thanks Terry 🙂

Yeah, it starts off like that… you do a few Munros… the next year you do a few more… then, when you get quite a way through the tick list, you suddenly decide you need to go up to Scotland every possible break you get from work and get as many as you can! Or maybe, I’m just an out-and-out bagger! 😉

When I finally compleat, I’m hoping to go to Oman and do some of the stuff you’ve been doing – looks quite nice so any tips would be welcome…

Happy New Year Carol. Fuel prices are my biggest outlay. A good tally of hills for someone hopping around on one leg.

Well, I wasn’t quite hopping… just walking up some of them with my pot on! 😉

My biggest costs are accommodation without a doubt – which makes me think it was total false economy to tell myself I couldn’t afford a camping van 10 years or so ago when I started the Munros!

Happy new year & good luck on the remaining 24 !

Considering the weather & 6 months unintended sabbatical, its still a hill tally not to be ashamed off.

Haven’t counted mine – didn’t get up any Munros :(, managed a sole Corbett, a nice selection of Grahams & a few Donalds. South of the border a couple of walks in the North Pennines, completed another round of the Wainwrights and only 60 away from another 🙂 Several planned trips postponed due to the weather 😦

When you tick off those last 24 are you walking according to another list or are you picking hills as you fancy them ?

I’m going to be doing a bit of a combination I think. Firstly, I’m gonna get back to all the places I’ve been missing out on while I’ve been Munro-bagging, e.g. the Hebrides and the Isle of Man – also Snowdonia. Then, I intend to tackle whichever Corbetts I fancy, do more stuff in Assynt/Sutherland and do some more bothying. I also plan to do some long glen routes like right through Glen Tilt to White Bridge and the Lairig Ghru.

hmmm – I thought 37 Munros to go was no problem at the start of the year… but I was wrong! Hope you’re right
