T’was The Night Before Xmas – The Climb #337

Sunday 24th December 2017 I woke really, really late today.  This is what happens when you go to bed at 4am.  But I’ve had a great few days with friends and I woke very relaxed and completely ready for xmas. I’d had a message that I needed to be at my parents for 5pm.  I’d [...]

A Reunion With An Old Friend – The Climb #161

Saturday 1st July 2017 Danny is one of my oldest friends.  25 years ago we worked in the same voluntary organisation, and when I was I charge of national recruitment he was one of the regional coordinators. However, back then Danny wasn’t the type of person who looked charitable.  In fact, if you met him [...]

Hunting Aliens In Roswell – The Climb #122

Tuesday 23rd May 2017 Today was a down day. Down days are days when you aren’t chasing any storms.  Sometimes this is simply because there aren’t any storms within driving range, but sometimes it’s because chasing a storm would put you out of reach for a better storm the next day. They’re also a good [...]

Wandering Around Winnipeg – The Climb #117

Thursday 18th May 2017 In my original plans, today would have happened yesterday.  I would have spent the day doing all my shopping so I could then spend Thursday relaxing before the chase on Friday.  But I lost Monday due to the cancelled flight and so I woke this morning knowing I should get everything [...]

Post-Coital Tristesse – The Climb #101

Tuesday 2nd May 2017 The trouble with finishing a long project like a novel is that I suddenly find myself with time on my hands.  And after months of conditioning myself to feel guilty whenever I procrastinate, I now find myself continuously restless because anything that’s not writing feels somehow wrong.  It's like stepping off [...]

I Failed So Bad Today – The Climb #63

Saturday 25th March 2017 Today was an absolute failure of a day and I had a great time. One of the downsides to the day job is that I’m often on call, needing to respond to emergencies.  It pays extra money and our setup is such that we very rarely get called up.  Except, when [...]

Five Ideas For Missions For Your Trackables I've not had a lot of time to get out Geocaching these past couple of months, and I'm looking forward to the time when I can start going out caching every weekend again.  Still, that hasn't stopped me doing a new article for GPSTracklog.  This time I look at trackables and try and give [...]
