Hey Stone, perhaps it is best if you could pm me your GSM? Then I can share it with Steve-O. If any of us get lost, you're on duty! :-) ça va?

Fortunatly I don't have to cre about directions (at least I hope so?!?). But maybe it's time to check the haves and needs anyway:

Haves:
coffee maker (if they believe me it's not an infernal machine to spread my fundamentalistic weltanschauung)
milk foamer
coffee & sugar (at least I try not to forget again)
slackline

Needs:
a corner in a tent (I'm a harmless and peaceful sleeper, ask Ash for reference)
a rope end (not necessarily a sharp one)
a stove for the coffeemaker

And finally: A plan how to spend 6-8 hours in Brussels without getting bored, lost or broke because I spend the weekends budget in a coffee shop.

I should be able to find that. I'm planning on arriving around 10am Friday morning. Just checked the weather forcast and it looks like rain on Friday, lots of sun Saturday, and chance of rain Sunday - but it's still early so that will probably change.

Tisar - I've got coffee and sugar, so don't load your bag down for no reason. Also have an extra tent and sleeping bag, etc.

As for Brussels - why don't you call Paolo when you get here - you two can meet up for lunch and he can give you a set of keys to our apartment?

The espresso stuff is standard flight baggage for me, so I don't mind. Consider it my humble contribution to the morning comfort. Sleeping bag is there (I taped the holes so the molt is over), but tent would be great. Since German weather found back to it's constant bitching...

Sounds cool. I could take Scapi for a walk then and scare some Belgian kids to death :twisted:

I hear she only likes to go out now if you lower her from the balcony, and then jug back up the fixed lines, hauling her behind....

:lol:

Or was that just a nasty rumor?

chtur, funny pics! btw what is the plant component of genepi - i hear you need 40 of smth to get it right - but of what? and where is the Giacoletti hut?

yup, no luck with the weather - we also went south this long w-end looking for it, and it snowed/rained everywhere in the mountains - we finished discovering some new areas in southern france - Orpierre (mostly one-pitch climbing - interesting concept though, a couple of motivated climbers decided to revive the almost abandoned village in the 80ies and made a sort of family climbing disneyland out of it with the blessing from Madame le Maire etc.) and Ceuse (breathtakingly beautiful despite its 1h approach for sportclimbing).

Finally monday things were looking better and we managed a very nice 600m monster on Pic de Bure in the Devoluy chain (between Vercors and Ecrins) that looks like this (not my pic)

Heya, guess we're leaving around 7.30 on Friday, back on Sunday. Plenty of space unless overlord has managed to find a ticket to bxl, in which case it will be a squeeze. Only beware - you'll have 2 smokers in the car :?

For Genepy you need the plant which only lives in the mountains higher up, something similar to Edelweiss, and the recipe for me is a little unknow. It is like a science of its own depending on who you ask in the valley :lol: Everybody claims that there own is the best. Then there is is fact that you are only allowed to pick six every day.......

The Giacoletti hut is in the valley Po on the italian side of Mt. Viso. Not with the most know climbs I can think but you are for sure alone all the time with very nice surroundings. Next time we plan to some climbs directly in Viso.

Btw, no climbing for me for a while know since I am back in Sweden for a while know.

>.< it's that bad here, huh?

I feel like i should add something to this, from a climbing point of view.
Last night, at the first (sucsessfull) BofA meeting (scottish thing) somehow my friend Frasier talked me into trying for my first highball (I'm a big sissy when it comes to this) and man... it was good! I had a big fat mat (not as big and fat as I would have liked...) under me yet i felt like i was climbing way harder, out of shear want not to come off :P after the topout came the shadey, chossy downclimb :shock: now THAT scared me! :D :lol:
needa more highball!

Other news, my kittens teeth are officially long/sharp enough to peirce skin. not a good thing...

stone - I forgot to check two important facts:

1. Is there a guidebook for this area? Can we buy it there?

2. Can my dog attend? :D

Ahh, bullshit. It'll be all sunny :evil:

Anyway, see you soon! Gotta get up in 4 hours, so wish me a short but deep sleep...

Paolo, I'll contact you tomorrow morning by short message. Maybe we can meet up for lunch, so I'll get the keys and Scapi a walk.

Soooo happy to see y'all again! Smile :D
