No not Butlers but not far- I was on South Pumpenbill Rd for a year.. used to hike up the pinnacle from the front face-quicker than going all the way around through Uki, Kungher and to Barkers Vale....now i am on the other side of the ring of Wollumbin (Mt. Warning) on the wettest side...clay slides my specialty

hijack on - a belated welcome btw.

i note you say you are deaf - is it a recent thing?

just kind of wondering where my hearing is going to take me - i've swiimers ear, the bone is pretty much stuck in place in the middle er and i've got nerve deafness to go with it all.

last ent i saw (about 8 years ago) said he could fix the outer and middle but only so he could fit me with a hearing aid, basically there wasn't a whole lot he could do that was much more than stick a bandaid on it.

i sort of cope mostly - makes it hard at times esp when people get on my (worst) left side. has an upside - screaming babies and wife don't bother me one iota...

mind you noone's suggested cochlear so maybe i'm relatively ok in the hearing stakes. has the meningitis side-effect been sorted?

hijack off.
