A treat for the 3rd Mountaineers

Post by Panzergraf » 17 Jul 2011, 21:11

Klings and I, and some of my non-airsofting friends, went mountaineering this weekend.

It was a rocky place! :D

Mostly a rocky hike, so it wasn't hardcore or anything.

I'm not enough of a Mountaineer to do vertical climbs :wink:

BE would not provide transport, even they knew it was rocky, so we walked.

I've done some vertical mountaineering, the type where you klimb an use rope and stuff. But i like rocky hikes better. :)

While packing my stuff on Friday I suddenly realized that I have almost no proper outdoors equipment that's not in Flecktarn or otherwise part of my aitsoft kit collection :P

I didn't wear full flecktarn though, only my backpack, cap and goretex-ish jacket.

I got a giggle last year at B8 beerparty in Sollefteå. Some otherwise civilan dressed Norwegian players were having a lively discussion about airsoft tactics around some beers. Much to my amazement a couple of dudes still had their Bowman headset on their head - while all other clothing was highly civilian. I giggled and grinned all the way back home on my fully laden motorcycle over that little observation.

Really made my day, that one. :D
