The route is via Sedrun, Disentis, Andermatt, Brig with a two-night stopover in Leukerbad over the Furqa Pass at 2, 429m. Fortunately Peter immediately fell back into driving on the 'wrong' side of the road, driving over a pass is no big deal whilst I tried very hard not to look out the window and see how steep it is out there.
This is the same route Jochen and I travelled when we went to Wassen a couple of weeks ago. It is one of my favourite trips.
We reached the highest point on the Furqa and just had to get out. It pleases me greatly to be able to report that Jochen lifted his leg on the Furqa. It seems somehow fitting.
We arrived in Brig and paid a visit to some very good friends who all those years ago supported and helped us with the SAR training. Killian Schnyder was the then president of REDOG and through his effort and visit to Australia with his wife Marlis in 1996, gave Peter and me the courage and optimism to continue with SAR training. We spent a couple of happy hours catching up with news before we headed off to Leukerbad for two days.
