I can't seem to get my "location" right, but I'm still here in Austria, die Steiermark, Bezirk Voitsberg, and even better, in Koeflach. The "o" in that word there needs two dots over it and sounds like an "ee" sound but with your lips rounded, so that it ultimately sounds like something ridiculously Germanic or scandinavian. I'm still working on the vowels here.
Looks like you'll never find out how I got down the mountain in detail, but for those of you who are curious, I used my two legs and sometimes an arm for support. We cut off 3 hours by going down the mountainsides sometimes. And if you slipped, you slipped on some puffy snow so it didn't hurt. The way down was so much easier, but at the last stretch I was so excited to go home and rest that I pretended I was Rocky training in the Russian tundra, running the whole way down and making obnoxious Sylvester Stallone grunts along the way.
I was sick the last 5 days of my Weihnachtsferien, but i think I deserved it for all the strain I put on my body. The rest of it made up for it.
