Lucky Warmth
Me with a spade (essential scientific instrument) and my reliable Russian camera. Of the less important things:-) the blue fjord is called Hornsund; the distinct tip rising above the plateau across the fjord is called Hornsundtind – it's the highest point (1431m) of southern Svalbard.

Great fun but pretty costly. (Please see my reply to Nanuls's question in comments on album)

Thanks Liba - I guess you mean that handsome man of the Ice Age. :)

OK, time is relative, Liba. But I have a medical self-help guidebook, and there's this standard question in many a chapter: "Are you over 50?" Still, it's not "Are you over 10,000?", so I hope we can agree on the "man of the Little Ice Age" :)

Well, you are not even that old to remember the little ice age. My brothers are your age...Just forget the medical stuff - I would be old too, I should have a mammogram every year, but hate any interventions...It is in your mind....

Sure, Liba, I keep telling this to e.g. my joints but those bastards just won't listen.:) I will not give up though, seriously.

I am sorry Jacek about your joints. I had a few injuries and became very frustrated when I could not move.... but still you should be optimistic - you do not need a wheelchair. I think that we need to keep trying be happy for every little thing we get...

Agreed, Liba. Although I'm realistic by nature, you can surely call me optimistic given my plans for the years to follow, which include moving closer/into the mts, possibly working in the UK for part of the year, and series of quick treks/hikes with a light pack. (I can hardly carry more than 11 kg on my poor back – which is actually something I shouldn't do - but the gear's got pretty light recently as you know).
Cheers
Jacek

or you can get someone to carry the stuff for you... haha
I hope that you will get better - it is frustrating not to be able to move... Good luck Jacek, and if you make it to US - I will carry your stuff...

That's very kind of you, Liba :) but if I come I hope I'll get a Hatatitla :D

I am impressed... I was starring at Hatatila, and could not remember where did I know this name from? of course... Old Shatterhand's horse...a beautiful one too...But, I still remember full name of Hadgi Halef Omar (about 2 lines)....
Hatatitla can carry more than me...

Without doubt, Liba, and all this will make for a new May novel "Old Shatteredjoints Venture and the Treasure of Moravian Karst" :), the first May book written in English as my German is limited to just a few words. Sure it won't be In the Gorges of the Balkans LOL
