I am keen to get to the Himalayas or perhaps the Andes next year. I'd prefer to go with trusted cronies - so if you might be keen on the same thing please let me know, otherwise I'll book on an Exodus trip (I had to explain to Caroline this is not a one way journey to Switzerland!) in October as an individual.

Sorry Matt and Elliot - sorry about the squashed nature of the pictures. Seemed to happen when downloaded to site - don't really look like that and neither do you!

Derek's Street Orienteering idea turned out to be an absolute cracker!
6 brave competitors took to Rammy's notorious roadways. All of them returned (5 on time). Undisputed champion was Nigel (590 points) closely followed by Elliot (500) with a great performance from veteran Dave Dixon (340) who still had the energy to pursue a spurious argument about a control being in someone's garden (come on Dave it was night time!). There were commendable performances by Barry and…Continue
