  • Sunset on Everest and Nuptse from the trail to Kala Patthar #magical . . . Did you know that Mountain Withdrawal Syndrome is a thing??? Google it 🧐 . I have slight case of it for sure! 🤣 . . . Symptoms include: * Feeling the need to see land that rises above tree top height * Annoyance that the tallest thing around is either tree or buildings * Procrastination from work to think about mountains * Ignoring work (and social events) in order to go on a weekend trips to mountains * Wearing outdoor gear around town * Bizarre desire to go indoor climbing * Excessive desire to feel cold, get wet, and be blown about all day, every day . Relief: * Discussing trips past, present and future with friends (Relief lasts less than 24hrs) * Going on weekend trip (lasts 7-10 days) * Week long holiday trip (lasts 14-21 days) * Entire summer outdoors (lasts 28 days maximum) * Permanent relief will only be found by living closer to mountains. Preferable to see them from work and/or bedroom window. Access to them should be available every weekend, with possible evenings access even better. The bigger the mountains the better. Ahhh... made me giggle 😁 . #ebc #ebctrek #everest #nepal #basecamp #himalaya #himalaje #dream #bucketlist #hike #lovehiking #lovemountains #onestepatatime #wanderlust #travel #podróże #azja #clifbar #arcteryx #newyear #nuptse #kalapatther #bucketlist #nepal #everestofficials #explorenepal

  • Lessons Learned The inquisitive, curious and loyal may have seen the second photo to this post, but my pride probs stopped me from being totally honest about my first hike in a "real" mountain area. My original post makes out like it was a causal, near whimsical, walk in the woods, but as with most hikes there was much for this novice hiker to learn. I'd been psyching myself up for this walk for weeks. Lake Mountain, walk the track up to the summit, down thru the resort and ski tracks to the Keppell Hut, then back up the 4WD road to where I began. 22km or so, April so not too hot. I'd finally stopped cramping up after 15km's, I felt physically fit and was just super excited to get up there. I bought a woollen base layer and a coat I thought suitable for a bit of rain, I felt as prepared as I ever had on a hike. The weather was overcast when i left Melbourne, but was forecast to clear mid-morning, and when I started there was a misty rain in the first hour and a half, nothing I couldn't manage. I kept on going full of naive enthusiasm. Some of you might know Lake Mountain and the Keppell Hut track. Its narrow and not well maintained. Its also in the midst of rapid bushfire regrowth, trees, shrubs and sapplings clawing for space and sunlight, growing at every angle. Despite the rain stopping, by the time I got to this gem of a track, everything was dripping wet. With my coat already wet from the misty rain, provided no protection. My choice of trousers breathy cotton cargos) were like a magnet, trapping every drop I brushed past, so by the time I got to the hut, I could barely walk straight as my heavy sodden clothes chafed every joint, my new base layer totally ineffective. Why do i remember this hike fondly? Well the Keppell Hut had just been stocked with split fire wood, so I quickly lit a fire and hung my clothes to dry in front of it. I made a cozy lunch of dried fruit and sangers whilst I laughed at my overconfidence and totally insufficient gear. By the time my trousers and base layer was dry it was time to head back. Humbled by the warm sancutary of the Hut, I raced the afternoon storm out of the valley.... wiser and smarter than when I left.

  • Opinel Saw-Knife No.12 The Opinel No.12 folding saw is an ideally sized pocket saw suited for small tasks. Folded it measures 16.5cm (6.5in) and deployed 29cm (11.25in). The saw blade itself is 13cm (5in) long. At just 108g (3.8oz) it doesn't weight much. The blade is made from 12C27 Sandvik stainless steel - the same stuff used in Morakniv knives and the rest of the metal hardware is also stainless steel. As such, it requires minimal care and is well suited to be kept in one's kit as a back-up with little to no chance of corrosion occurring. The exception to this is of course sea water. Should it come in contact with a saliferous environment, it should be rinsed off with fresh water as soon as possible and left to dry. The handle is made from beechwood. It is a durable wood well suited for for handles. It being an unstabilized organic material, it will swell a little in high moisture conditions so the blade can tighten up a bit but there's nothing to worry about. I have sometimes heard complaints that the blade is a bit thin and prone to bending if it binds during a cutting operation. The thing is, this is designed to be a pull-cut saw. It is not supposed to cut much on the push stroke. With pull-cut designs, blade thickness is not an issue. When used correctly, this saw performs flawlessly. Opinel knives (and saws) are locked blade knives but they do not use conventional locking mechanisms such as the lockback and linerlock mechanisms in most knives today. Marcel Opinel invented what he called the Virobloc locking mechanism back in 1955 which is essentially a slotted ring that slides over the blade preventing it from folding back into the handle. It has since been updated so that it can also slide over the blade when it is folded so that the knife cannot deploy during carry. It is a very reliable locking mechanism though I have always hesitated to subject it to as much abuse as my other folders such as the Buck 110 which uses a lock back mechanism. I guess it is partly to do with the ring lock and partly to do with the fact that it uses a wooden handle; granted the pivot pin is stabilized with an inner metal ring within the Virobloc lock ring.
