I wasn't going to do a blog. I thought blogging was a bit egotistical, and I spend 8 hours a day in front of a computer anyway.
However, deep down, I'm an egotist, and I enjoy writing about my trips to the highlands (I would call them adventures, but I'm pretty sure adventures should feature excitement, danger, Nazi gold, or at least some pirates). Turns out I was pretty much blogging anyway with various posts on the singletrackworld forum, and with an appreciative audience of at least, ooh, 5 people, I was encouraged to preserve them in the form of a blog, so you have those five people to blame.
