180311 Marienbergjoch
A group of ten of us took the touring skis and walked from Biberwier up to the Marienbergjoch. During the 800 meters of climbing, Sonja and I took the chance to review the last 25 years.



Then we slied down to the Sunnalm for lunch.

Sunnalm

The ski back down was brilliant. Ten good skiers on a nearly empty piste.

Out walking with Christine Sieber. Up to the Haslacher Alm then across to the Buronhütte. Down under the lift and home along the road. She was surprised that there was snow in the mountains in March :-)

180114 Sunnalm
Renate had a fantastic idea. We could take the touring skis and walk up to the Sunnalm. I was excited by the idea but skeptical about the Alm as we had such bad service last time.



But I was worrying for nothing. Weather, snow, colleagues and WAITRESS were all perfect. A fantastic day (which I almost missed by oversleeping).

180110 Wannenkopf
The plan was to use the touring skis to walk up to the Wannenkopf for a drink. But after about 10 minutes, I slipped on the ice and while sliding the binding broke off my ski. The result was that I fell over and slid head first back down the slope.
Probably the shortest ski tour I ever did.



A few days later I received brand new bindings, mounted on my skis and all for free. Thank you Fischer and Sporthaus Baronsee!

180106 Pfronten
The snow has either melted or been washed away. In the morning Gertrud asked if I wanted to go for a walk so we walked to Reichenbach for a coffee. It was so sunny and warm that I was motivated to take my MTB out for a run. Not so far and few hills but still the first ride of 2018.

180101 Varaždin
I started the new year with a whoile series of business meetings in and around the beautiful city of Varaždin in Croatia. On the flight to Zagreb there were 26 passengers on board and everyone got three seats.



The city is stunning, the people are efficient and friendly and I can't wait to return in summer.

171226 Lachenerhütte
Another sunny day. Another ski tour :-) As the terrace at Sportheim Böck was so full yesterday, I aimed for an Alp twenty meters higher up the mountain. Much nicer. Hardly any people. Amazing the difference it makes when you have to bring your own food and drink :-)

Christmas Day, sunshine and snow. So once again I walked up to Sportheim Böck and enjoyed a Capuccino. I took my time but was "rewarded" with a 114bpm average pulse :-)

First trip out with the touring skis today. Three days ago I was climbing a volcano in shorts and a T-shirt and today I walked with skis up the local mountain. It is a tough life - but some one has to do it.

171221 La Graciosa.
Today is the winter solstice but I was out cycling in shorts and a T-shirt. You just need to be far enough south. Yesterday we arrived by sailing boat at the Island of La Graciosa ( https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Graciosa,_Canary_Islands ) and today Shane and I hired some bikes and went for a ride round the island and a walk up the dormant volcano of Montana Bermeja.

171218 Agadir to Caleta del Sabo
After nine days of waiting, the winds and the swell in the Atlantic finally reduced and we crossed over from Morocco to the island of La Graciosa in two days. Debbie was ill so it was just Shane and I doing watch alternately. Tiring but fun.

171205 Ayamonte to Agadir
The first stage in a sailing trip to the Canary Islands. The trip across the Straits of Gibraltar was like being in a washing machine. The sail down the African coast a little more relaxed. 100 hours in total.

171202 Nikolaus Spinning
This evening we spent three hours on our spinning bikes at the fitness studio in Seeg. Three different instructors each for one hour. Schnapps and chocolate during the event and pasta and beer afterwards. Not sure that the net result was a calorie loss :-)

171123 Sportheim Böck
It was a starry Thursday evening. Inge suggested we walk up the mountain to Sportheim Böck and enjoy flasks of mulled wine and biscuits at the top. It was fun but I think we ate and drank more calories than we burned off.

Unlike yesterday, today was neither warm or sunny but Caro convinced me to go out cycling. We were absolutely soaked through by the time we got home.
