I’m a Registered Mountain Guide!!!! Reg #: WC11476

Just a quick catch up! I promise.

Not many words but lots of pictures to remind ya’ll that I’m still around: D and I’m finally legal!  ^_^ It took 4 months for the one Department to issue my SETA number and another 3 weeks for the other Department to issue my Adventure Guide Card! 😀 and now I have to wait another week or two for my badge lol

I’ve done 40 hikes with a sprinkle of sports climbing since my last (hike) blog in November 2018.  I can even give you the exact dates I did them all as I have to keep a log book of every mountain activity I do!  It’s clinical and boring and puts me off from writing fun blogs about my mountain life!  Also, I just didn’t have the time sigh. Corporate has been keeping me busy and being on the mountain has been keeping me sane J

So! Following my previous blog ……….. I did mention Kloof Corner Ridge training on the 09th December,  Du Toits Kloof and Matroosberg training on the weekend of the 14th December followed by my practical assessment on the 19th December 2018…
