I hope the temperatures drop a bit before you start your hikes. I wouldn't

Good scheme. I'll try and fit in with the majority view up until Thursday
midnight at the latest - we're off to stomp the hills in Northern Italy
again really early in the morning of Sat 1st, back on the 15th, so will be
off-line between those dates ...
