Our pitch on a deserted campsite at the bottom of Cadar Idris, the highest mountain in southern Snowdonia!
The mass you can see in the background are the mere foothills to this monster; the summit is way up in them there clouds.
What a picture...
All of ten minutes into the accent, I'm knackered and leaking badly.
You should have seen how I looked at the end!
They* say "actions speak louder than words"...
The Miserable Fox shows his appreciation of physical activities!
They* are in the process of improving the main path, hence all the white 'Helibags' full of granite in the previous picture, and yes, that's right, bags for helicopters, how cool :0)
The last unforgiving slog into the clouds and to the top
A small mountain hut can be found at the summit.
A few of us once slept the night in here on the floor - it was rather chilly, to say the least, as the hut has no door and clouds would spookily blow in.
...and yes, I do like to dress like a washerwoman from time to time :0)
Rich, you are wearing a rucksack and that is a walking pole, you are NOT a ghostbuster...
Although we didn't see a ghost all weekend, so maybe I'm wrong?
Descending back through the clouds revealed breathtaking cloud formations over the lower hills
...out of 10 or 10 minutes??? :]
Next up, was a greasy spoon fry up breakfast and then an afternoon of quad biking
The quad biking site was nestled high up in the Welsh hills and the course was brilliant.
You were issued with protective clothing and quad bike each and taken across miles of fields, through varied woodland and even up and down quite sizable streams.
Half way through, we all stopped for a breather and I fell in love with the farm dogga 'Perol'. An absolutely top dog and the hound even rode on the back of my quad for some of the course, pushing in close to me to keep balance :)

Today's Top Tip: [Wise words once sent to me from Sarah]: "Omigod I am so hungover! You should NEVER, under ANY circumstances, go all day without eating, then have 5 beers, 2 shots of tequila, then 2 more beers, another shot of tequila and then 1 more beer"
