  1. You climbed Mont Blanc eh? Well…*she said trying to think of something to top it* I climbed Everest all by myself and only took me 2 days. I have pictures. If I have time I’ll put them up, if not…
    I shall read the whole story later, but only to see if it’s similar to my own climb.
    Loved the pictures as ever.
    PS that is not a simple rain gutter?
