We arrived back at the half way point and Cotswold Outdoor basecamp at 10 p.m. after starting out at 5 a.m. So, I was extremely relieved and comforted that the team had set up our basecamp, all kindly sponsored by Cotswold Outdoor. The Vango Cairngorm tents had all been assembled with ease, roll mats laid out and covered with Rab sleeping bags, and additional pillows made for a cosy and comfortable night’s sleep.
Cotswold Outdoor also kindly made sure my whole team were fed and hydrated. Dinner was meatballs and pasta, and the hot chocolate pudding really hit the spot and put a smile on all of our faces. A full English breakfast was also laid on in the morning, and dinner pouches, which were the perfect size and weight to carry, were provided. In fact, Cotswold Outdoor provided all the cooking equipment and utensils, and honestly, it wouldn't have been possible to have this level of comfort without this support, so thanks again.
