Ha ha - the Errigal account...
...love it.

Saw the praise from Bleck Cra and Paulocon, just read it there. Great stuff alright. Have to admit I know how you feel. The whole "press on, what's the worst that can happen" stuff! Have been lost in a blizzard on the Reeks Ridge without map or compass, have fallen through ice crossing a frozen lake (knew the depth was about chest height, but still surprised at the cold!), and have been stranded on a ledge for hours in the Dunkerrons after thinking the contour lines were close together but there was bound to be a way down. Learned from each experience (I sometimes even bring a map now!) and look back on them with affection now though was not laughing at the time. There is something of an adrenaline rush about battling through the problems even when you know that what you're doing is borderline stupid/dangerous.

Dunno why I said borderline there, walking on a frozen lake was utterly stupid.
