I'm famous, almost! :-)

In a minor sort of way. I kid you not. A friend of mine fell off a mountain several years ago and broke several bones pretty seriously and since we happened to be at the top of a major 3300m peak about a days hard walking from anywhere in bad weather, it quite quickly degenerated into an epic. The story has now featured as a chapter in at least two books and is now an article in the 'Getway' which is a very popular outdoors magazine in South Africa. My mother has been pestering me for years to write up my account of what happened but to be honest, it isn't a memory I really like to dwell on but I think the time has come to finally do it so over the next two weeks, it'll be appearing in dribs and drabs on this blog. Hope you enjoy it.
