And your story is not bad either...

I really enjoyed your report, thank you for taking the time to write it all up.

God, it must be six years since I've been to the Stella - have to go again, especially as we didn't make it to the top due to snow blocking the track and poor tyre choice...

Thanks for bringing back fond memories.

Great to hear from you Ela, I think global warming has left its mark and getting to Lago Sommeiller has become less difficult. Tyres didn't seem to play a large part this year but ground clearance and a good bashplate play a role. I was warned to watch out for assholes not potholes but really everyone I met had a smile on their face even the guys with breakdowns. A great event and what a base to explore further!
