I hope we're taking Innsbruck going back.

when going back check the traffic information for Karavanke, maybe you can take Ljubelj or Korensko sedlo instead. I would also choose Innsbruck over Munchen any time.

Hike indefinitely postponed. At trailhead I realized I forgot map and flashlight, and the water bladder ruptured soaking my backpack.

Not a good day.

Silvertape from both sides effectively solves the problem, if the rupture is not too large.
As for flashlight: did you plan to stay overnight somewhere or you were planning very late return? Because I usually take it only in those two cases, every dag counts when you hike for the whole day.

Rupture is small but I'm not sure I want to risk a homemade fix. Once I tried to fix a leakage in my bathroom, and when I got home there were 10 cm of water on my floor...

I planned to hike a very particular trail:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Strada_delle_52_Gallerie

A wartime mule track 6.5 km long, 2.5 of which built in (unlit) tunnels. Flashlight is mandatory.

Group of international experts with the Slovenian archaeological expert for Maya(n) history Ivan Šprajc at the head, have found about 1.400 years old Maya(n) city, deep in the Mexican jungle.

Silvertape is ideal for repairing water bladder. I ruptured it one day with crampons and then I've repaired it with silvertape - it still holds like new.

Thanks for your tip, but I bought another one. I know I am a disaster at fixing things and I don't want to risk, especially now that I decided my next conquer: Monte Amaro in Abruzzo (2800 m). Too long and tricky a hike to risk wasting my water reservoir.


On another matter, strong earthquake today in Northern Italy, between Tuscany and Emilia:

5.3 Richter, still no reports on damages and casualties. Let's hope for the best.

I often want to repair cheap things - last time I've bothered whole evening unsuccessfully to repair broken balcony door handle just to find out next day that new handle costs just 4.5 €
Also I still hold 25 year old television which needs about 40€ worth of repair. As much as I watch TV it is currently enough.

It's a Japanese masterpiece of end of 80ies electronics, it doesn't work that way anymore - a failed power supply is the reason - something that can be easily changed at old electronics. Everything else works like a new, sound is much better than with current LCD&Plasma TVs. Picture quality is debatable - for me colors and contrasts are still better on that TV, but resolution is lower - which is not so important as great majority of TV programs have still standard PAL resolution.

Color, contrast and depth of blacks of cathodic tubes are still unmatched by LCDs and plasmas.

It's true, thats why we (in our family) are also fans of japanese Sony TVs. They are the best.

Yesterday I have received a postcard which my friend sent me from Verona. It was sent in April, and it finally arrived after two months. There's interesting stamp on it: "MISSENT TO THE PHILIPPINES"!

Is there anything in your place that can be confused with Philippines?
