    You do these so well gimp. But I was stunned when your mate actually talked - is that meant to happen in silent movies?

    Had to just get on with it while he skinned out his bull and found a bit of shade to dump it all in at the bottom of the hill

    Very nice Mr @gimp

    Curious about the level of fitness required to chase the mountain goats. On average, how far do you guys walk in, what is the altitude gain ?

    On this trip, day 1 walked ~3 hours in, about 6-8km and maybe 400vertical, pretty cruisy, just looking around. Day 2, 15 hours on the hill, climbed 1500+ vertical, hard to say how many km, deep snow made it hard going, saw over 100 animals in the day. Day 3, a few hours out with heavy packs, all downhill. Mine was ~36kg, my mates was 47.5kg with the skin and head... should have carried a bit of it for him....
