You live on a mountain don't you???!!! I'm sure you told me that a few years back. Or a fucking big hill at the very least?

Yeah but the only time I walk up half of it is if I've got to go down the drive and get the post. We're about half way up a hill by comparison to some of these mountains pictured. It's the Berwyn Mountain range. 

 

 

Actually, Easter sunday is another day we are a sure thing to go up, clock up around 5 miles just hiding the kids Easter eggs all over the place before 7am. We then wake them up, get 2 camping chairs out to plonk in a field where we get an ace view of then walking past most of the eggs. The rule is what they don't find, we get to keep. 

 

First one is when we start with the eggs around 5.30 second image some time has passed and they're still hunting. You can just about make out the kids on that one.

About right, but I could only dream of it being tarmac...  6 hours of digging when we're snowed in, and that was after 5 days of waiting for it to thaw.

Just to the right you can just make out the shallow grave Rich would have been buried in, exausted and empty, after she'd managed to snare him in her web...

Annapurna 

 

 

FB_IMG_1624397559446.jpg

The Annapurna circuit is on my to-do list. It’s about a 20 day trek of high altitude trekking with some of the best views on planet earth. 
The Everest base camp trek was the hardest physical thing I’ve ever done in my life, so I reckon this would be up there. 
 

Edit: Look at that picture. Imagine being so skilled and fit that you could actually climb that. I love shit like that.

Avid followers of me on FaceAids will

already have seen these so I make no apologies for that. 
 

Ben Lomond yesterday was forecast to be windy but easing through the day and possible cloud base of 900m, thankfully the cloud was much higher and we got fantastic views all day long. 
 

Had the mountain top all to ourselves and I asked Mrs TheBitch the question.

Mate of mine did that too and he said the same thing.

Punching him in the face I hope. He's hit the jackpot there.

I dont necessarily think fitness is the key on its own.While you wont be much use if you are carrying a load of excess weight I've heard stories of people who were fit as a fiddle but couldn't handle the altitude sickness and those who weren't very fit but handled the altitude problems unusually well.

I’m sat reading the updates of this thread for the first time in a while as I listen to the post-derby podcast and decided I’d rewatch the video of when I went up Tryfan a few years back and it turns out it’s in the wrong thread and not embedded, so I’m putting it in here now.
