Er, well, apparently doing a scenic pee on mountains in Malaysia can land you in prison. So, erm, don’t do that.
Fortunately the UK is more forward thinking with it’s mountain urination policies (unsurprisingly it doesn’t have one…). However, you should still have a good think about where you do it- Rob here urinating at the side of an A road in the Highlands probably doesn’t count. Rosie certainly doesn’t appear to think so anyway.
Yesterday was our beloved founder’s birthday, so here’s a photo of him and me contributing to the ice at the top of Glencoe Ski Centre back in 2012. Happy Birthday Chris!
It’s been very dry lately, so here’s a photo by Ben taken of his mate Rob in the Lake District doing his best to top the lakes back up after the long sunny spell. Good stream, but I think it may still take a while…
Well, following the last post saying goodbye to winter here’s a nice springy one to welcome in the sunshine. This is Rosie allegedly urinating near Torridon. She claims she is also very naked.
Well, the weather has started to get a bit nicer. There’s still snow on the hills, though, so as a hopeful last goodbye to winter here’s Harry weeing on a waterfall. Specifically this is Steall falls a couple of winters ago when they were completely frozen. Hopefully it’ll be a while till we see it like this again!
I went and rode my bike up on High Street on Monday and it reminded me of this scenic pee from up there back in 2013. I think this was taken by Rosie and while it looks like I’m weeing at great height into Haweswater below there is, fortunately, a big old gap between me and it. I don’t think I can force out a mile long stream….
Not sure if you’ll have seen Top Gear last night but it starred a pretty bold scenic pee from Richard Hammond, seen here relieving himself on Wolf Mountain in the Canadian Rockies. Not much of a stream, but I don’t think scenic peeing is really pre-watershed material so I’m sure they did the best they could. He was also worried about what would happen if a bear came along whilst he was doing it, a valid point- be careful of bears when you have your winkie out.
This week we find Tom Marvin getting a healthy stream on at the Strathpuffer 24 hour endurance bike race in January. Tom and his team minced their way to 2nd place- a round of applause for Tom.
This rather death defying (holding an axe with your important parts out whilst standing on a snowy cliff) was taken by Annie somewhere in the Cairngorms, which look rather lovely at this time of year, don’t you think?
Bit of a sad one this week- another avalanche claimed a victim, Max Norman, in Torridon over the weekend, and this week’s scenic pee is posted in his memory. It makes sense, then, for it to star our beloved founder Chris in this textbook display of an exemplary stream in spiffing scenery in the French Alps which was taken by Huw Oliver while they were working for Bike Village, who apparently do some pretty sweet holidays out there.
Stay safe in those lovely mountains everyone!
