    So as you know I made the bold decision to pack light and so went for a 30L backpack with plenty of pockets, a water bladder compartment, an air back system and a waterproof cover. This decision was partly the result of the luggage restrictions on the flight which, because of my inability to tell how much things weigh, I grossly underestimated.

But I was able to get a good shot from the bridge itself. Made it to Glasgow at 9:20pm, hiked to our room, then found pizza and beer at a local sports pub just in time to see England lose to Italy in the Europe Cup! Don't know if the Scots are upset or ...
