I'm gutted that I didn't carry a spare radiator hose for my van and ended up stuck between Young and Boorowa with no mobile reception and a rather long, hot walk ahead of me instead of spending a day sampling the granite goodness at Borroomba.

I am however stoked that my temperature gauge works and I didn't cook my engine.

Gutted that I fell off Epic on the weekend. But on the bright side I realised I was doing it totally wrong and should be able to get up it clean next time.

Cheers.Just in case anyone is wondering, the sensation of two ends of a broken bone rubbing against each other is as unpleasant as it sounds.

oz tag is vicious. my left hand is a pinch free zone due to my thumb getting bent back a long was as i went for a tag.

I had no idea what oztag was so I did a google search. Apparently its a safe non contact form of touch rugby!!!!! Imagine the injuries people playing full contact rugby must suffer.

Nasty Duncan. Collarbones are never good to break!

There I was thinking my grade one Medial Ligament tear whilst playing inter work soccer which stopped me training for three weeks was bad...

Gutted that I dropped my small red friend on Determinant at Booroomba on the weekend. I don't remember dropping it or hearing it fall. At least it was an old one. It wanted to be free. There's booty at Booroomba!!

Goodie, I'll be up at Baroomba this christmas and Determinant is now on my ticklist.

I think it was on the second pitch, but remember, that cam wanted to be free... If you find it, you will never own it. Your role will merely be stewardship until it is free again and bootied by the next owner.

In fact, be careful. I started to climb really well when using that cam, and started to call it "My Precious" for some reason. I looked in the mirror this morning too, and I've aged heaps since I lost it.

didn't notice it was gone? on a multi-pitch route? 'fess up, you left it in the belay!

I think what happened was my t-shirt was hanging over the gear loops on my harness, and I may have clipped it onto a gear loop with my t-shirt caught in the gate of the biner. Step up, move my t-shirt - Precious gone.

When good cams go bad . . . Strange how they sometimes jump like that isn't it . . . .
After hauling 2 pigs from Big Grassy to the face below Gledhill bivi (in the dark. and in light snow) I was
stuffed and really needed to split the load to make the final section easier so I set a quick rebelay.
Part way through I sense some thing fall away and spin to see a bit gear disappear, the scream 'below'
as J & D are in their ledge below me. Fortunately it landed in the snow and was retrieved the next day
though I really have no idea how or from where on me the piece jumped. All good in the end . . .

I'm gutted to realise, yet again, that I can't climb slabs. What's going on? I've cruised 20s yet was sketchy and shiiting myself on a well bolted 18. Why? Am I too fat? Too stupid? Genetically deficient? In future I'm going to stick to my strengths. Personal growth is for the weak.
