So here it is... The winter round up!
The winter was a superb one. 2.5 months spent in Scotland, living in my van. I can't say how much fun it was, but you all know this as you have read the blogs. If not now would be a good time to have a look back over them. My highlights from the winter are (in no particular order); Traverse of Bein Eighe, Ben Nevis via the CMD Arete, The Derry Cairngorm Escapade, and lastly passing my Winter ML Assessment.
What? I didn't mention that? Ok well as you may or may not know on the week beginning the 17th March I started my Winter ML Assessment. This is believed to be the hardest assessment you can take in the UK. Any further assessments I under take wont include an expedition. The assessment was hard. The expedition was brutal. But I'm not going to go into detail. There are hundreds of self congratulating blogs out there written by people who have passed there WML Assessment. I'm not going to add another.
All I'm going to add is that there are a vast number of people who I couldn't have done it without, Sarah, Sue, Nick, Lee, Tom, and Sam (This is not an exhaustive list just a few people who put up with me for the longest). Thanks for putting up with me. Thanks to everyone else who has come out with me in the winter over the last few years.
So what have I been up to for the last month?
Since getting back from Scotland its been work, work, work. Im now entering a period of manic work. The DofE season has kicked off and this is what pays for my winter trips and other fun playtime. The stuff you all want to hear about.
Im not going to blog about work, not DofE work anyway. Its simply not that interesting for you all to read about.
I will however keep posting what I'm up to via twitter, and will blog about trips and climbs that I get up to.
So don't be strangers.... Keep checking for updates!
