Re: Come on lettie

Sparkologist, for making me nearly pee myself laughing. Here are some pics especially for you. Everyone else will think they are boring. There is a shot of Mer de Glace, taken from Le Lac Blanc in Aug 2002. The cloud was descending on us fast, and we were soon pretty much engulfed in it. There's a closer one of Mer de Glace, taken from Montenvers, and a shot of Aguille du Plan taken from Forbes Signal.... Enjoy!! Tried to give you karma, but as I have done so already, I have to spread it around a bit....... oooh er!!! Hope the pics will do.

Re: Come on lettie

I'd forgotten how small tuk tuks were, how on earth did you three manage to squeeze in there. You either used a shoe horn and some industrial strength lube, or you were sat on each other's knees...

Hehe - i couldn't believe we all got on it, it was a real sight!! Anyway, I've attached a photo I took last year of some real bangkok tuk tuks, should refresh a few memorys. I've a different opinion then you over the tuk tuk's, I loved them and thought they where the best way to travel... but that's me that drives land rovers down silly hills and the like!!

Re: Come on lettie

Who said there were three of us sat on the seat?

Because Royski was first to see it and fastset out of the blocks, he bagged the comfy seat all to himself. Wingy had the creature comforts of the offside chrome handrail all to himself, whilst i had to make do with the nearside equivalent, and as much of the canvas roof as i could cling on to.

Somewhere there is a video clip of the tuk-tuk just about to try and limp back to its home port, accompanied with a commentary in the broadest Lancashire accent you are ever likely to hear... "This is what a broken down tuk-tuk sounds like!"

Re: Come on lettie

There was also a more scientific reason why Royski had the bench seat... something to do with fulcrums and centres of gravity. If he'd perched? more like lurched on either of the handrails, there would have been a minimum of one wheel in the air. In all probability, there would have been three wheels in the air as it would have gone belly up

Never mind scientific, he beat you to it....


Seriously, I'd like to take the opportunity to thank Mick for helping me with this thread. Mick kindly put all the photos on disc for me, downsized them etc. I did the Alps ones myself, as I have been messing with the paintshop thingy, but can't quite remember how I did em, (definately going to have to start writing stuff down) Cheers Mick.

Re: Come on lettie

Fankoo for the piccys, Lettie, especially the one of Aguille du Plan. Who cares if they are regarded as boring by some. They are pictures of freedom and a stress free existence away from concrete and tarmac. When you have time, take a look at www.earthgallery.net It is a website by a Scottish photographer called Colin Prior. You'll be wishing yourself away, back up the A82 to the Highlands.
Royski found this site when we were in China, http://www.terragalleria.com/ There are many high quality photos by Quang-Tuan Luong, a climber and travel photogapher, from all over the world. Big-up-respect to Royski for finding that site.

Re: Come on lettie

Thanks for the info, have just turned a photo of Aguille du Midi and Mt Blanc du Tacul into my screensaver. It's nearly 2 years since I was there, and my feet are still scarred from the blistering....
