Remembering rmilne
Anyone looking for a heroic tale of overcoming great odds to conquer a mountain could do worse than read rmilne’s post on Mount Leinster. (19th Nov ’04)
If you want a laugh join him as he battles his way up the tarmac road to the summit, wondering if he will make it or will a bear leap out and get him. The slight frost has him wishing he had brought crampons. I return to this post again and again for a laugh, as it puts into perspective how straightforward the ascent of some Irish hills can be. It is made all the more poignant by the fact that rmilne died on Mount Everest on June 5th ’05, having climbed the highest point of every continent. (more information on his user profile page)
For me, a relative newcomer to MV and one who tends to walk alone, it is great to be a part of this community. I just wanted to take the opportunity to recall a member I never met but who lives on through his MV posts.
Happy Christmas to all of you out there, and particularly to the maintainers of this fantastic site!
