S.M.A.S.H.I.N.G M.(C) I
I have a potential solution to the M(C)I issue-a new rival group which would better represent the majority of people who visit the hills and mountains of Ireland. This group would be the Small Mountain and Small Hill INterest Group-Mountaineers (Cordially) Invited (S.M.A.S.H.I.N.G M.C.I) To be honest I dont know much about the world of mountaineering. I don't know an Abalakov Thread from an Atomic Belay, or Z-clipping from a Z-pulley. I wonder if these specialist mountaineers know our hillwalking language-Ham Sandwiches, Flask of Tea etc. Other terms like Map & Compass and It Gets Dark at 5pm might also be beyond them too. To be serious, I took out MCI membership last year to avail of their insurance and to get their magazine. (10% discounts are handy too) Their magazine doesn't really appeal to me as much as Walking World Ireland. I will contact MCI to ask about the name change and to see if I am still eligible to be a member. (Do they still want a mere walker!)

A couple of pics from a frigid hike up Slievenamon that continued on to the NE top, Sheegouna.Amazing how even the most unremarkable hills are transformed by the white stuff.
