No offence taken, and I agree with you. 8)

I'm comfortable being up high as I'm a climber but last night certainly brought thoughts of "this is gonnae hurt" to my mind. My dad never understood my love for rock-climbing and he thought that me doing winter-climbing on ice and snow was socially irresponsible. :roll:


I got blown off the top of a marquee in Ullapool once in the middle of the night in a gale force storm trying to stop it tearing itself to bits. All the time I was skidding down the canvas I was thinking "this is going to hurt" luckily I landed flat on my back and just winded myself badly. Much to the amusement of the bassas I was working with, conveniently forgetting I was the only person willing to climb on top of the bloody thing.

Tazio,

nothing like a bit of risk-taking to make you appreciate life.
I used to get an extreme buzz when climbing at my technical limit, sometimes kept me going for days after just thinking about it.

Are you in Electriclarryland at the moment? 8)
