The Bumbly Dreamlist (planning my Euro roadtrip)
9:33:56 PM
June 10th I'm outta here, Sydney to Stavanger.. Fk knows how long for but a couple years at this stage.
I'll be living in a pimped out van (rapevan 2.0) and travelling ALL over Europe with a bunch of excellent people climbing, wingsuiting, surfing, snowboarding, and prancing naked through meadows.
So I'm starting to build a list of super classic must-do routes.. Mainly interested in long relatively Cruisy stuff on rock snow or ice, especially things I can jump off the top of, but boulders and bolts won't be neglected entirely. Have at it!!

9:38:44 PM
I reckon a nude reenactment of the twirling field scene from the "Sound of Music" is a must;)

10:07:14 PM
Norway. Troll Wall. Place an inflated tyre tube near your wingsuit landing location!
Good luck 'rodent', and don't forget to post a trip report or two.
10:13:32 PM
I won't be jumping at trollveggen repeatedly with my norgie friends because apparently it is illegal :) I've spoken to a couple people who have climbed it and apparently the choss and rockfall are horrendous so i might give that one a miss.. And yes I'll put together a little blog from the road with photos videos and stories in case anyone is interested

Hey JC

how do you plan to get around the schengen zone 3 month visa issue in Europe??


9:31:49 AM
Have fun JC...want lots of piccys

9:48:26 AM
I'd be scared to go near your van. How do you finance your trip?

Adam- UK passport
Groveller- I work in mining/oil & gas precisely so that I can do things like this, working 12 hours a day until I go but if I stay long enough to run out of money I can work offshore over there, and luckily you are not the the target market for additional van occupants

No worries. Any time.

Le Chant du Cygne, 7a

It's almost a thousand metre sport route on the north face of the Eiger. As an added bonus it ends about a hundred metres from the Eiger jump off point.
10:16:15 PM
Where are you surfing ?

Potrugal is the bomb, and France (Hossegor, Biarritz) also. In summer there will be naked birds in France on the beach. In winter north sea swells. Portugal cops a pasting from the north sea and north atlantic in winter. Figuera de Foz, Peniche (supertubes), the Ericeira region (Coxos, Pedra Blanca and the 'beachbreaks') have great waves. 3-4mm rubber weather. General word is to avoid Mundaca these days as it's got a big crowd waiting to drop whenever it cranks. I suspect a whole heap of northern Spain is great too.

At every opportunity let people know you aren't English.

Sounds perfect, thanks!! Guess I better start getting fit! Tried to jump the Eiger last year but weathered in, looking forward to getting up/off this summer!

It's good to see that some things don't change.

Have a great time, Mr C.

Verdon is an obvious choice....plenty of climbing and BASE options there. Chamonix is also another one.....lots of cruisy alpine multi-pitch and several jump spots eg brevant.
3:29:08 PM
Unfortunately Brevent has been closed to jumping (3 people died on it in the first week after it was opened) but the line is well above my wingsuit ability/commitment at this stage!
