Some might have noticed slight changes to our base camp recently. Tents have been stricken, sleeping bags rolled up and backpacks were prepared. And there is a reason to it.
The last couple of months have been very difficult for me due to the infamous real life issues™ (job hunting, for instance), and there’s no improvement in sight yet. My dear comrades have dragged me for a bit, but I’ve finally taken the decision to leave the expedition now.
This is with a heavy heart indeed, since I very much enjoyed our mountain tours during the last year and a half, and it was such an exciting experience to see this whole joint venture taking off. Unfortunately, though, I cannot see me contributing to the project in any consistent way, and I feel a clear cut at this point is just the right thing to do. However, please rest assured that my ‘retirement’ won’t affect the current course of this site as the lads are eager to carry on. My contributions so far will also stay on exhibition here at base camp, of course. And, who knows, if time allows I might even join in as a visiting traveller on future tours.
For the time being, I’d like to refer anybody who wants to get or stay in touch with me to my “new” old blog and/or my twitter feed. There might appear some ‘in-betweens’ and random ramblings on hobby stuff now and then, and at the same places it will be announced if and where I’ll go from there.
For now I want to thank anyone who’s bore with me so far, thanks also to all those visitors and commentators, and special thanks go out, of course, to my dear mates Jan and Dimi for such a great time here At the Mountains of Lead. See you all at the campfire!
