Many donkeys have tried to match wits with me, but almost all have failed.

I'm definitely going to be there. I may go out on the Saturday before and come back the Saturday after making it a 16 day trip (Friday evening -> Sunday evening). If Jess gets a car soon we'll be planning around that and taking 2 people with us. Else I'll put my name down in buses in the next week or two.

I might need to rob a bank now :(
I'm not scared of falling at all; it's the moment you stop falling that you've really got to be concerned about.  :P

Just realised I had outrageously over-estimated on petrol. 50 intstead of 80. Thats a bit better :)

As a compliment to Font (that's a lot of bouldering  :P ), there is a trip which shall incorporate much sport climbing and Font :D
Wining doesn't always mean being first, winning means you're doing better than you've done before
