It has been pretty poor weather hence the inactivity but I managed to read my friend Lyall Brotherton “Manual of Navigation” which is due out soon. It was a long process but very interesting and I think it will be agreat asset to those who navigate in the mountains and wild places. It was a journey that took Lyle over 5 years, visiting many countries and speaking to lots of experts all over the world. I met Lyle in Yosemite in 2008 when I was on my lecture tour in the USA, he is some guy and a great friend.
The weather was really good during this period but it was a job that had to be done.
I will be out at Fort William this weekend hopefully taking my nephew Scott up Ben Nevis with a few friends the weather looks good. There has been fresh snow on the hills and it was pretty cold, with wild winds one at 150 mph on the hills, incredible hence the lack of mountains on this blog!
A friend I was with who lead the Everest trip in 2001 has just sumitted on Kanchenjunga the world 3rd highest peak and a wonderful achievement. Well done Ted Atkins .
My granddaughter is up and is a wonderful joy to me, she is walking and always laughing, a special wee soul.
The sun is out so must get out and enjoy it maybe see the Dolphins in the bay.
