Alan’s hand will be OK. See here for news from Peewiglet (Shirley) on that front. You’ll need to click on the individual headings.
There’s little to add to my own entries, except that most people did about 56km (35 miles) and 2200 metres of ascent over the course of the two and a half day trip.
To view my postings click here and scroll to the bottom of the postings to start at the earliest entries….but first:
Some code names have been used that may puzzle those unfamiliar with W E Bowman’s account of ‘The Ascent of Rum Doodle’ – a fictional account of the ascent of a mountain higher than Everest.
‘Binder’ – already used by Alan Sloman over on his blog, is the leader (a figure of fun)
’Jungle’ – Peewiglet already has this nickname – is the route finder (who is always lost)
’Prone’ is the doctor (who is always ill)
’Burley’ is the crack mountaineer and strong man (who always suffers from Lassitude)
’Medical Supplies’ = champagne
A slide show of my pictures and a few of JJ’s is here. There are none of the gory hand as photography wasn’t appropriate at the time of the accident – Shirley’s blog contains a gruesome image taken later.
I think that’s all, for now. I’m off to replenish my first aid kit, which was totally inadequate for Alan’s injury. Luckily, others were better equipped.
