Wahey! I've now climbed 178/273 Irish mountains over the past 6 weeks. 😍
Only 95 summits in Ireland left to complete my record-breaking challenge 😀👍 The weather has been utterly horrific; the views non-existent; and the schedule incredibly tiring. But there have been amazing moments too. My positivity and high spirits won't be beaten by the never-ending rain and tropical hurricanes. I'm going to do this! Thanks to everyone for all of the messages of love and support. It means so much. ❤️
What’s your preferred travel accommodations? We’re staying in a private room in a hostel right now and it’s bringing back memories of being a high school teacher. Teens (people under 30) are legit scream singing into the vast night and I’m wondering if I ever had a youth since I’ve never thrown up on a stranger. The end. #shakespeareofourgeneration

Stone balancing is a surprising controversial art form. Some claim that it disturbs the natural environment and intrudes on the experience. Others maintain that it is compatible with the leave-no-trace ideal.
The stability of a structure is dependent on the individual stone’s centre of mass, support points, and forces of other stones in the stack. Friction, weather, and seismic activity also play an active role in the stability and longevity of a stack.
