thanks for the update, it makes very interesting reading after having the opportunity to get to know ypu for a few days. I'm glad that you could meet Alex ans skate a bit with him. I always like a session with him and/or Sven when I'm in Konstanz or Kreuzlingen.
I went up the Kamdel once more, but the second time I went with the bicycle. It looked so much easier with the motobike and I definitely wasn't in shape for this ride, but I didn't give up. :-)
