The recent bothy trip went above and beyond what I expected in so many ways. Let me explain …
To have fun but thought that quite a lot of it might be type 2 fun.
Us 3 to be alone in the bothy.
To have to dig holes for toilet issues.
To be cold.
Lovely views of Welsh hills.
Not to sleep much.
A quiet evening chatting and laughing with an early night.
A small shell of a building.
What I got:
95% type 1 fun by the bucket load.
A very very busy bothy. So busy, in fact, that some had to sleep outside.
A flushing (kind of) toilet.
I was freezing cold most of the time. When the fire was lit I warmed up to being merely cold!
The most stunning views of hills and reservoir.
No much sleep (more about this later).
A noisy party atmosphere with lots of chatting and laughing.
A cute little cottage with a few basic features to make it more comfortable.
Despite being quite wrong with my expectations I can confirm that it was an amazing trip and I cannot wait to do it again!
