ALS Ice Bucket Challenge

Yesterday Ruediger “Quisel” Klos challenged me via Facebook in the ALS Ice Bucket Challege… some viral campaign which is meanwhile very popular in the US and now spreading more and more into Europe. The goal of the campaign is to spotlight the Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), a neurodegenerative disease with various causes. A description about the disease you can find on Wikipedia or at www.alsa.org

A lot of prominent and well-known people have taken already part in the challenge (e.g. Marc Zuckerberg, Bill Gates, …) and get a ice bucket with cold icy water over their head. So I’m not prominent or well-known, but I think its a funny way to do something good and spread the word…

Ruediger… challenge accepted ! I nominate Volker BreuerJason Leaand Marvin Clifford for the challenge. So guys… you’ve 24h to accept the challenge and put your Video on FB/Youtube or donate 100 USD to the ALS Association. Have fun!

Hochkönig, Austria, Summer 2014This year my family and I went to the austrian alps to do several hikes in the Pongau region within our summer holidays.We were a kind of lucky because the weather was mostly ok in the first week of August. A bit rainy and cloudy but overall we had a great time.

I have uploaded some photos with some impressions. You will find the files in the new section “Hiking” – above in the menu. I might be able to post a bit more information about the area within the next days. If not – sorry in advance – got a couple of other urgent things to do.
