@MM0FMF They’d have to be liquor chocolates to qualify for this thread Andy (and you know how I hate to go off topic ). I also find that chocolate on mountains either melts in the heat or goes rock hard in the cold.
@HB9DIZ Very posh Markus! Unfortunately now I’m a pensioner I’m not sure the budget runs to a Moët.
@MM0EFI That sounds good Fraser. I haven’t tried that malt (yet). The mountain is already selected for this occasion though. Helvellyn. I think the Munros will have to wait for next year, this one is filling up rapidly!
@M0HGY A fine tribute to the Lord of the Lakeland fells Jimmy.
@M1EYP . Do you have shares in that brewery Tom? And thank you for sticking to the theme and not nominating a tin of Baxter’s!
@DL6GCA I can’t wait that long Armin . A bottle of my favourite red will be opened for dinner tonight (a late Sunday roast). I like your sartorial skills!
I have recently completed my activation of all the G/LD’s on CW but unfortunately no celebration took place on Arnside Knott G/LD-058, just a short party with my radio friends ( I had a train to catch), thank you all!
Celebrated my goat with Christmas dinner by huddling under a boulder and trying to force down a very stale peanut butter sandwich, before walking another 10km through some impressive but drenched kaarst scenery to reach the nearest (unoccupied) hut just on night-fall!
In a more general sense, once I got out, I celebrated with a nip or two of Talisker, then sleeping as much as possible for the next month or two, having summited over 220 vertical kilometers worth of peaks in the previous 12 months, 88 vertical kilometers of that in the 3 months before Christmas.
And buying a new pair of boots.
And promising myself an easier challenge for 2022!
