/ Club CIC trip problems
Our climbing club is heading up to the CIC hut next week, but we've got transport issues. We've got six people, plus gear, to get up there, but between us we've only got two highly unreliable clio's, that almost certainly wouldn't make it that far!
So, 6 people, + gear, to scotland, on a sunday...cheap.
Looked at car or minibus hire, but just too expensive since we'd be renting for a week, but leaving it parked up for most of that. Is there anyone who'd like to tag along, but would use a minibus for the week, and pay towards it proportionately? Or is there some magical solution I've not thought of yet?
The train, since you are staying in one place once you get there, and you have to carry everything up to the hut anyway.
Or even the bus.
According to the newspaper this morning, the entire country will be under 6 feet of snow next week, so you may as well cancel the trip.
Phone local minicab companies and ask them to quote you for two return trips to Fort Bill?
Buy an MPV then sell it when you get back?
Get the Clios fixed, fit a roof rack for extra storage if needed.
Can you get one-way car rentals to / from Fort William?
