Laid up and more votes required!

I'm not very good at being injured but it could have been worse... When I turned up in casualty in Inverness on friday morning they were talking about hip to foot casts for 8 weeks. As it is I hopped out on crutches with orders to rest for a week or two. Achilles feels stronger already but I'm still hopping around. Still its an opportunity to catch up on admin. that never seems to get done in winter and I'll get to see Jane and Sandy when they get back from a week in the Lakes.
More votes required for The Berghaus Adventure Challenge please. Vote for my geeky adventure! 4 of us are going on an exploratory ski mountaineering trip to the Geikie Plateau of Volkaarts Boons coast (gotta be worth a trip just for that name). PLEASE take 2 minutes to vote for us on the Berghaus Adventure Challenge website- tell your friends. We'll be taking a skidoo across Scoresbysund (if its frozen enough) to a camp on the coast before climbing up onto the plateau to try to bag some new peaks. I promise to put up a video of me on planks falling over lots!

Oh no, bad news! Hope you recover soon. We had a great week dodging the storms and managed to tick off a few routes I'd wanted to do for a while. Nice to be climbing in the east again after a gap of a few years.

Well done on climbing through last week. Din't worry, leg healing slowly but surely. al

Hah - what a feeble excuse! Rather than face E & me on the winter climbing at Glenmore you take a tumble and get invalided out of duty!

Well get well soon Al and maybe we'll just have to book you direct so you can't weasel out of it so easily :) If you're really lucky George might come along too.

... and we even got out for a couple of practice sessions at the Westway.

Aaargh, gutted- we were set for a few days together Anatole but I'm crippled for at least a week. My wee boy keeps grabbing my crutches as I try to hop about on them. Enjoy it, I'm sure you will have an awesome week anyway.

OK - how about Aonach Mor around the end of March? (another birthday job!)

Drop me an email Anatole, weekend 26-27 still free.

Me and the missus just got back from Peru last night. Whilst up at Machu Picchu the Inka inscriptions told me to vote for you. Done!
