Thank you, Michael. The garage thinks my company vehicle is too damaged, so it's a total loss.

Waking up on sunday and such a view...



We want to hike to a very easy summit called "Giebel", but mostly not on the hiking trail but on the ridge above where there are only animal trails.














Now comes the easy part on the flat ridge and the summit is not far







Done, what a view of Lake Brienz, Lake Lungern and all the mountains.

Thank you Nakken   :cheers:
Yes, this hike was great. Above the tree line, free, wide view, that's how I love it. A great father-son time.

@Echotech: thanks also  :hatsoff:
Always nice to see your photos from Down Under.




Well, another hiking day begins


Today we go down from the Planplatten to Meiringen. 1600 meters of altitude - that's a challenge for my knees!




Look back to the starting point.












Break!, half done




The rest of the path through the forest down to the valley

Wow...

I should definitely try to stop by here more often...

First of all, so glad to hear you are okay after your car accident Peter, things like that happen at the blink of an eye but can have long lasting consequences.  I'm so happy you escaped relatively unharmed  :o.

And those pics you posted afterwards are just breathtaking, you know by now how much I love your country, and how sad I am that I haven't been able to visit the mountains (Swiss or Austrian) for some time now.  Daydreaming while looking at your pictures give me the feeling of being there myself, even if it's only for a couple of seconds...

Same goes for your beautiful pics John, though I doubt I will ever get the chance to visit your beautiful country (but never say never I guess  ;)).

Thank you both for sharing those awesome pics here,  really appreciate it my friends  :salute:.

What TG24 said.   Stunning pictures in this thread.  I don't visit often but I am rewarded with gorgeous scenery when I do.

For sure your thread is a good place to stop by.  ;)

Thanks, two solid cars wrecked and no injuries, believe me, I'm glad too.
I always enjoy seeing pictures from elsewhere here, I'm happy if my pictures can do the same for you, Eric.
Hope you see mountains up close again soon.

@Aloha: Thanks, I'm glad you like it  :salute:

Took advantage of a day off to go for a walk earlier today. Alongside the SAK photos, about 12 months ago I posted some marker stones from a nearby street, which led me to find this info after a couple of you asked;

The other one seems to be a bit of a mystery. However, what I have found is this - "This stone is the milestone which marked the one mile from Preston town centre along the old Liverpool route via Penwortham Old Bridge." If something else I've read is correct, it used to have an info plate which read "Preston 1, Ormskirk 17."

Well, it turns out someone has restored the mileage information plate...



It looks rather good. :tu:

And here's the Swiss Champ in the park.





We have the tools, we have the talent!

Hey Michael,

I remember you posting pics of that stone and me asking about its purpose, so I just had to look up that original post of yours (it's on the bottom of page 55, if anyone is interested  ;)).

Very cool that someone restored it  :tu:.

Great pics of the Swisschamp in the park, gotta love the champ.

Thanks for sharing the update on the milestone, and your beautiful pictures here my friend  :salute:.

Stay safe  :cheers:.

@Michael: Beautiful photos, you have such beautiful, large parks. And the Marker Stone has its plate back. How old might he be?

@Echotech. Cool neck knife, amazing scenery and a good dog.

Beautiful pics John  :o.

Over here days are getting shorter, nights are getting longer, and there are more and more of those dark, grey and gloomy days...

And it's all going so fast all the sudden, it seems like only yesterday we were sweating our *sses of, and now it feels like mid autumn.

Oh I should stop boring everybody with my "old man ramblings" and be thankful for those awesome pics I get to see here.

Thanks for sharing them here mate, really appreciate it  :cheers:.

Stay safe  :salute:.

Thanks guys :tu:

Eric we’re supposed to be in spring moving to summer and although the weather has been lovely last few days, we’re in for massive storms and floods again with a very wet summer predicted for the third year.
I’m lucky not to be badly affected where I live, but can definitely understand your grumblings! :)

We haven't had that kind of public place here, right? :think: ;)

Hey Peter,

As far as I know that is a first in this topic  :D.

My first job back in the late 90's was, among other things, operating the weighbridge at a garbage recycling company.  But it wasn't that huge.

Very original pic,  but probably the first time you post a pic of Switzerland and I don't want to instantly jump in my car to visit that place  :D.

Great pic, thanks for sharing it here my friend  :cheers:.

Stay safe  :salute:.

Thought it was about time I posted something myself again.

I still have some pics from during my summer vacation that I haven't posted (or even processed) yet  ::).

Oh well, I'll start with these next ones. 

They were taken at an old, closed attic at work, and show my most used and carried Victorinox, my Huntsman.

It was the first SAK I bought (a week later I bought an Explorer, and another week later my first Swisschamp, and so on... ::)).

My Huntsman has been in my pocket at work since the day I got it, first at the Hospital for over 10 years, and now almost 3 years at the brewery. It has a lot of scuffs and scars, but they only show from upclose.

Hey Eric  :cheers:

The Huntsman is a great SAK. And if you carry it with you for so long, it acquires a special value. These scuffs and scars cannot be bought.  ;)
Beautiful these old wooden barrels. I assume today production is only done in huge stainless steel tanks?

I actually prefer the Explorer over the Huntsman (and the Swisschamp over both of them  ;)), but the Huntsman was my first SAK, and it's been my loyal "work knife"  since the day I got it,  so you're right when you say it aquired a special value  :tu:.

I believe they use stainless steel tanks, I don't get to see that part of the proces, I'm usually where the "dirty" bottles get sorted, or where they get washed, disinfected, filled up and labeled,  the beer gets brewed in a different room.

The barrels on the pic were used to store wine weirdly enough (before I started working there, I assume). On the inside you can see dark red/blue/purple cristals sparkling and you can still smell the wine on the inside.

Hey John,

Beautiful pics mate, such breathtaking views, stunning  :dd:.

And there's that "bra tree" again, you guys have such diverse fauna and flora over there...  :sa:

The Eldris is one of those knives that surprised me after I got one.  I bought it because it looked cute, but once I carried it a couple of times I started to really appreciate it as a capable companion (no pun intended).

Great little knife  :tu:.

Thanks for sharing your pics here my friend, stay safe  :salute:.

Thanks Eric :tu:

I’d not been out there for 6 months and wanted to see how the bush was recovering as it was one of the worst affected areas

The trees all have growth coming straight from the trunk rather than branches making them look kind of fuzzy. Very unusual never seen it before, something to do with the intense heat they endured, but at least they’re mostly alive

The eldris is a great little knife :iagree:

Cheers mate :cheers:

Hello Eric

Sorry for my late reply, I was in the mountains again for a few days - on these rare days I'm always offline.

The Swisschamp is awesome and a legend! My EDC SAKs are at the other end of multifunctionality.  :facepalm:

In my hometown there is a successful young brewery called Doppelleu (Double Lion) and even though I don't drink alcohol I have visited the brewery once. As an ignoramus, I was very surprised at how high-tech everything looked. :o

Nice pictures Echotech

The bra tree always works! An evergreen...  :D
The recreational power of nature is always amazing, isn't it?
A buddy always has a Mora Eldris with him and I was allowed to test it out. Very usable, a real workhorse.

My wife, our son and I were lucky enough to spend a week in Ticino, the italian-speaking south of Switzerland. An old lady lives there with her dog, hens and goats and rented to us a small cottage next door. Meadow, river, rocks and high, wooded mountains. Haven't seen so few people in a long time. This relaxing time passed far too quickly but we enjoyed it very much.

First view of the nearby river.
