"Unforgiving World of Man" from ahendroff Contract pics
Picture: Unforgiving World of Man (Contract pics)

Wed 26 Aug 2009, 3pm Aghla Beg (South) summit was my last 600m MV top. Nothing more to climb all now lower than that magic 600m mark. Full of joy, tho' slightly muted. Weather - low cloud base all day, misty, prolonged light rain, wind 20mph gusting to 35mph, winds NW/WNW blasted straight at Aghla's. Sharp contrast to walk day before in the Bluestacks. Sharp contrast on return as well. Car window smashed, door handle damaged, door doesn't open, shattered glass everywhere ... on the seats , on the mats. 1,263 euro worth of damaged so was I told by the repairers. Nothing disturbed or taken from car. Not even MP3. Odd. Never experienced such nonsense on R251 at base of Mackoght in years of hillwalking. Normally safest place to be. Effects of reccession? Yeah, any excuse. These low-lifes and time-wasters are disturbed. Sick in the mind. Get a job. Life's got more to offer. But will they ever realise their talents? Sadly, realistically - no. Whenever I venture into the hills or mountains, some people I know tease out safety issues. Tho' I always feel the mountains and hills are the safest place to be. The unforgiving world of man is what I worry about.... for me the message definitely hit home tis' day.

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.
