In 1999, the City of Toronto called the Canadian army to help clearing the snow. We received about 1.5 m of snow within 1 day in 1999. I spent almost the whole day outside clearing the driveway and had no room to push the snow to at the end. The snow bank was at least 10 feet tall.

This training should be much difficult then walking up and down a 20 storey building.
Hi ktan,

I have no doubt that it was very very tough job shovelling the snow especially if they continuously fall down.

But you will be using a different sets of muscles for both activities.

Hi Bern,

I know that. I will need to train my leg muscles too. Enjoy your GG and perhaps mount Kinabalu.

Left my camera in the car until all food finished. So only managed to take these 2 photo.

I went to pick up Adil at Cititel Express at 7.15pm sharp and went round the corner 500m away to Taman Selera Kampung Air and sat down on the left hand side as recommended by 9W6VX. tecrc was next to arrive followed by Keywest. Adil was surprised by how young and boyish looking this Keywest looked and complemented him on that. Adil imagined Keywest to be someone must older :D . 9W6VX brought up the rear.

With the full complement of people, we finally called the captain to order our food. What we ordered? I think soft shell crab, Sabah vege, emperor's vege, pak chok prawns and tong fong lo snail.

Most of the dishes we like by everybody except that Adil chickened out on eating the tong fong lo snail.

So what do we talk about during the GG? Surprisingly not much GPS was discussed as all present are all expert already. So we talk about our experience climbing Mount Kinabalu and share tips of the climb while 9W6VX was busy sharing about his 6 climbs to the tallest mountain in Malaysia and also about his marathon running as well as this favourite running shoes. Adil was busy asking where to find the dusuns. Not sure whether he is after the dusun durian or the dusun rambutan.

We finally call it quits at about 10pm as Adil need to get his final shopping done and than retire to get his beauty sleep. Hope he will be blessed with good weather for the climb tomorrow.
