Those who don’t think it can be done (shouldn’t bother the person doing it)

Grey's Peak New Zealand

 “But there are men for whom the unattainable has a special attraction. Usually they are not experts: their ambitions and fantasies are strong enough to brush aside the doubts which more cautious men might have.

 Determination and faith are their strongest weapons. At best such men are regarded as eccentric; at worst, mad…” Walt Unsworth.

 I’m gearing back up, slowly but surely…

Initially into the Blue Mountains, just to the west of Sydney, for some rock climbing to hone the skills and aiming for a Nepal trip to climb three 6,000 metre peaks in November.

Cho Oyu, the world’s sixth highest and one of fourteen 8,000 metre peaks, beckons in 2015…

Sweet Dreams, Blue Montains

This has been my goal for sometime I’m just one-year behind after the injuries and some personal setbacks over the past twelve months.

But I’ll be doing plenty of travel in Australia’s wonderful outback over the coming months also – so be sure to stay in touch!

And crikey, if all else fails, just remain out of control and see what develops…

    Catchy pictures, and especially great colours in the last one. Hope you don’t get anymore injuries or other setbacks!

      Thanks, fingers crossed.

      The last photograph is Welford National Park, just on the fine of sand dune country in far western Queensland, Australia. 🙂

    And you’re calling me eccentric and mad (having a laugh)

    But let’s hope so, I have the passion for it, so let’s see if I can pull it off, but the fun is in the journey. Hey, you just keep rooting for me! 😉

    Take two scoops for your wonderful compliment! Cheers, Baz

    Enjoy keeping tabs on your progress. Plus, it motivates me to get out and try new and more challenging things. I want my 67th year to be fun and memorable for good reasons. Go Baz.

      And if I keep talking about it, it will happen, that’s how I’m calling it…Thanks Jim!
