Been a great read so far. I hope to be able to make a winter trip this year but got to see how work goes. Will need to have a chat sometime about your experiences and see how they differed from mine, hope to do a bit of travelling on the next trip.
Excellent trip report, as usual, Bob. The dull overcast is bad enough on its own but coupled with the 'warmer-that-feels-colder' weather must be a great de-motivator. A bit of sunshine would have worked wonders.
Thanks for the trip report, stories like this help drive home the seven P's and PMA, to borrow a few Military survival adages, good that you guys made it home OK, now did I spy some of Kev's new line of woollen tops on Chris the Cat?
