As I’ve posted before, I shall sadly not be on this year’s event. However, here is my little contribution — The TGO Song.
This is a marching song with a good chorus — perfected by Challengers as we marched through the Fetteresso Forest on our way to ice cream and the coast. The song namecheck some of our finest comrades!
When I return next year I shall expect to hear it sung with gusto!

Some clever sod asked me whether there is a B side. There is.
Here is a ballad based on Iain Thompson’s book — Isolation Shepherd — an account of his life as a shepherd on the shores of Loch Monar —a famous TGO landmark.

Of course, you don’t have to be a TGO Challenger to sing the song. You never know, it might inspire you to tackle the event yourself!
