    Hi Elaine and Cameron,
    Lovely to read your news and see the pictures of your Scottish Odyssey. We have briefly been in the UK to see family and friends over Christmas and New Year. A busy itinerary but great to catch up and lovely to have a 3 day surprise visit from Ali for Christmas – his 12,000 mile round trip was much appreciated! On Tuesday we head off for 10 days in Corvara – we will be thinking of you as we tackle some of our favourite runs and stop off for hot chocolate. We wish you a fantastic 2011 and look forward to hearing more of your amazing trip. All the best, love Steph and Rob.

      Dear Steph and Bob,
      That is cruel telling us that you’re heading off skiing to the Dolomites … and Corvara no less! I think that it will make a lovely change from Arabba. We are very jealous – despite knowing that you invited us along when we visited you in the summer.
      We’ve been stationed just about 3 miles from the Aviemore (Cairngorm) slopes over the New Year period. The ski resort has been busy despite the conditions being quite icy. However, we decided that we would forego skiing this year, even in Scotland, in order that we could concentrate on the mountaineering.
      Perhaps when you get back we could meet up either in Hexham (when we take the ‘van back to TyneValley to get the heating probes sorted) or up in Edinburgh (or may be both!).
      We hope that you have a fantastic time skiing and look forward to hear all about it on your return.
      Love Elaine (& Cameron)

    To Cameron and Elaine – have a happy, prosperous and safe 2011.
    Cameron, I spoke to your mum earlier on this morning thinking you guys would still be at Corpach but the birds had flown. I should have read the blog first! But then I would not have had a lengthy chat with mum.
    Take care and enjoy your adventurous year ahead. Best regards, Dad & Agnes
