Great stuff, well done to you all!
That fry up must have been huge, considering you were cooking it at 4.30am and you set off at 6.45am :lol: Nothing better than a hearty breakfast for such a trip :D

Thanks, I won't do it with snow on Devils ridge, a bit scared as well, but it looks too amazing to miss!
More reassured and now it's summer :)
