Plan is to travel up from Oxfordshire on Friday afternoon / evening and stay at Gwern Gof Uchaf campsite at the foot of Tryfan. We will then set off early as per the official Oggie 8 start time, I’m hoping to try and complete the full route but depending on the conditions I think realistically we will just see how we go. Nearest Pub will be beckoning on Saturday evening then hopefully a short walk on Sunday morning to loosen the legs before heading back home to cheer
onto victory in the Euros,
well hopefully anyway. England
My kit for the Oggie 8 will consist of the following and most items on the list are compulsory for the challenge. A kit inspection will take place on the day of the actual event.
Waterproof Jacket & Trousers3ltr Water bladder (or Travel Tap undecided which to take yet)
First aid kit
Group shelter (only one person in the team needs this)
Extras I’m taking not on Compulsory kit list
Spare socks (I find new socks really freshen the feet up halfway round, work when I did the Y3P)
2 x Drybags
All this will fit in my Salomon XA 20ltr lightweightrucksack.
