Tibet, here we come ...

For the past 13 years, whenever I have been at home, I have seen this picture every day.

It makes me smile.


In 2004, Adventure Peaks gave me the opportunity to lead their Cho Oyu Expedition.

It never just opened doors, it opened corridors with multiple rooms and every room held another adventure.

Today, I depart once again with Adventure Peaks to lead their Cho Oyu Expedition to where it all began, so to say that I am excited would be a huge understatement.

Bloggie updates will be directed to the Adventure Peaks News Page.

Farewell Scotland

My feet are smarting after just 2 days in the rock shoes.


This week has all been avoiding the rain.  We have succeeded but have been nearly hypothermic on more than one occasion.  Today saw the cardinal sin of having to wear socks under my rock shoes - not a pretty sight even if I do wear happy socks.

Tomorrow is the start of another big adventure and sticking with tradition I am no where near ready ...
