South Wales GTG 08

By geoffrey baker
One EPZ meet that I'll never forget, I ended up in hospital with fractured ribs, they're a rough lot these EPZ'ers Wink

Serves me right for trying to skydive down the bank of boulders without a parachute, not recommended I can assure you.

Sorry I sort of strayed away from the main group but I was in extreme pain but didn't want to show it, yeah, I know, I'm stupid, bull-headed, too proud, crazy, you name it, that's what I've had off the wife since Saturday too lol.

So I'm not to lift anything for a month and mountain climbing is out for a while too so I'll have to bore everyone with uploads from my archives now ;(

Oh, and that's Cole and Maddie on the right of the photo.

Lovely shot. Sorry to hear you were really hurt, hope you will heal quickly.

I saw you take the dive as you skipped across the rocks and thought it was a traditional Welsh celebration at the Point; it was quite elegant. Only kidding! Didn't realise you were so injured.

I just wish I could go into hibernation for a month or so until I'm better, it's a stinker.
