Welcome to Doodlecat, where we enjoy the pleasures of life (with a slight bias towards the outdoors). This page is regularly updated with news and views plus information about any additions or changes to the various parts of the site. It acts as Doodlecat’s Blog too, so the odd rant considered opinion may pop up from time to time.

I would love to be able to say that Doodlecat is all my own work, but it isn’t. Much of the outdoors content is courtesy of the splendid people who participate in the annual TGO Challenge (there is a section entirely devoted to this unique event) and many others.

To help in tracking down that elusive morsel on Doodlecat, the search facility under the title bar above is tailored to help you find it, either on this home page (Doodlecat's Blog) all the rest of the site (Main Site) or – if all else fails - the internet!

So have a rummage around the old cat basket and enjoy your time with us!

Snip snip go the scissors...

With hundreds of people carefully cutting out one particular page of the October TGO magazine, now seems a good time to add to the archive of challenges past.

This month in our TGO Challenge section, Mike Knipe explains why he is not writing up the 2009 challenge (go to the article here), and Derek Emsley recalls 1999, when he made the first "three generation" crossing with his son and grandson.

Mike Daniels' 1987 Challenge with the late Iain Matheson, taking in all the 4000' hills, attracted a lot of interest. In a similar spirit, another pair of challengers set out this year with the objective of a high level crossing - as high as possible. They achieved their crossing at an average height of 599 metres, which bearing in mind the start and finish are at 0 metres, and some of the weather in between was not exactly benign, is pretty impressive.

That's coming soon. Watch this space ...
