  • I just heard that Hans of "Wander Club" has died.  Hans organised walks, meeting at the bus stop in Los G.  Can anyone confirm this?

  • Yes I'm afraid it is true. He was waiting for an operation but died just before having it. I don't know what the operation was for but cancer was mentioned.

  • I feared it was true but I am sad to learn that it is.  I enjoyed many walks with Hans, earning silver, gold and platinum medals, presented with ceremony at the bus stop!  Hans made all of his walks interesting with his wide knowledge of the Teno area and its fauna.  It's only a few weeks ago that I was joking with him about mouflons (wild sheep) which, in all his years of walking in the mountains, he had never seen.  I was lucky enough to come across a small herd near Chinyero a few years ago and I gave Hans a photo of them.  He said he was going to use it as "propaganda" in his next leaflet.  I wonder if he ever got round to it.  I, for one, will miss him greatly.
