Update on #1 (Cadair Idris), and #9 - maybe
I will be south Wales for the first week, and then head north. I will spend sometime with Paul Allen at The Centre for Alternative Technology (CAT) in Machynlleth, and my #1 thing to do before I die is very near CAT. So I am planning on climbing Cadair Idris. I suppose I might change my mind if the weather is too crazy for climbing and spending the night, but at this point I figure that climbing in the winter is a mad thing to do - that means according to the myth I should come down the next day a poet. Go up mad, return a poet - not a bad exchange. Of course, I could simply end up twice as crazy.
I will be lecturing at a castle on the 12th, and am looking forward to that experience. Atlantic College meets in a castle. Maybe I can find a way to stay there as well, and then I could fulfill #9 on my list as well.
