Sometimes a taster is what you need

Who kept up with whom
Sounds like a gruelling pace, and something you wrote with your job in mind. Are you sure it was a holiday? Trial of endurance if you ask me! Now was it you keeping up with Fiona or Fiona keeping up with you? I think you might have been the one who was slightly on the drag there Tak. I hope that there wasn't so much 'living life' that you forgot to take pictures! Get a thicker thermarest mat with a bed attached to it :-) Enjoy the last days of your holiday, and start looking for a date in your diary for Abingdon Cottage.

Fantastic. Do I assume correctly the weather has been good to you? I hope the Patagonian wind blew you inside out, as no trip to Torres del Paine is complete without it. Hope your pics are stunning and you will share them in due course.

Glad to hear all is well. Seems like a lot of travel of the less pleasant kind for a smaller ratio of mountain porn. Best go for longer next time eh?

Was the last part of your journey by Dakota (DC3). If so I want some :-) Did you meet up with Fiona. I saw it on the plan but you didn't mention whether it happened? Good bus? Manic driver? overtaking on blind bends? Didn't anything happen on the bus ride. Cow in the road. People in the road; on top of the bus maybe :-)

Should have travelled business class
That's the reason you feel that you're at the end of the world. Cattle class makes you feel .... like cattle :-)

It's not for your pleasure
You don't go on these jamborees for your own good you know. It's for the other wasteral groupies who want pictures, pictures, pictures and live through your adventures. Now stop whingeing and get on with it :-)

No chance. It's as cold as an eskimo's pimple. Pop in for a warm up when passing.

Lard up the ankle
You've got two ankles, so either dispense with one or plaster a load of lard or bear grease on the duff one:-) We should soon be back to the bee saga then ;-)

Cunning ankle
Seems that the ankle became crook at just the right time, forcing a convenient pit stop with a tinny and t.v.

Tangled webs

Well honed experience
A contemporary Peter Hillary (1954) so DB must be just about trained in for the task in hand.

Hey Rob
You're not wrong - DB is semi-retired now but can still out-climb me on any hill I fear :)

No-one said anything about rain in the southern hemisphere! What happened there, then! Supposed to be sun sun sun, a bit of cloud and then more sun

A plan!
We've heard this plan thing before... But from earlier blog experience, your listeners have detected that plans do tend to fall by the wayside when the moth is captured by some flickering light ;-)
