Haha Dooter - You've spoilt it now!!!!! found this very funny as I knew what you meant and knew others wouldn't. It's a yes though anyway but not very often :lol: :lol:

Phew! thank goodness you caught the vibe. I was a shagger for a year without realizing, dont know how that happened.
This site is way better than the shaggers. Look forward to many more trip reports :)

Congrats on your 50th, splendid photos, seem to remember Monty has an aversion to "planking".
Thank Gawd you cleared up all that risque talk, and on the sabbath :lol:

Hi Louise,

Nice report. I'm just wandering about your ski's. Forgive me but I know little about sking but they look like a great idea. It looks like in the first pic you have black boots and in the fourth pic you have white boots on the ski's?? Or maybe its not you. Did you have 2 sets of boots with you?

Cheers

thanks gadgie and yes skis were great idea sadly not me on them though lol. I was one of those sinking in the snow, it was Monty on them. He did manage to leave us behind a few times but also practised his falling off techniques too :lol: :lol: Not sure how he would have managed on the ascent to the Cairnwell though when it was touch and go for crampons, by then he had left us to steam off downhill!
