The Winter of Discontent and Après Skiing
Shirley de Vries
InepdShirley After a 12 hour drive into the wilderness and 36 hours of walking we are finally here at Delta Bravo. Treacherous conditions. 5:25 PM 23-Dec-09
Shirley de Vries
InepdShirley We have had to deal with walking through deep snow and icy conditions on the mountain passes. 5:26 PM 23-Dec-09
Shirley de Vries
InepdShirley Have given the team a heavy dose of Ketamine so they sleep well tonight and get a good rest in the below freezing temperatures. 5:27 PM 23-Dec-09
Shirley de Vries
InepdShirley Klaus sprained his ankle after the 14th hour of our march and he begged us to build a snow cave for him and leave him. 5:28 PM 23-Dec-09
Shirley de Vries
InepdShirley Klaus didn't want us to slow the rest of down on our march. He was an inspiration to us all. I gave him a shot of Atropine and he bucked up. 5:31 PM 23-Dec-09
Shirley de Vries
InepdShirley Klaus had bad blurred vision and we nearly lost him on some of the trickier climbs. We couldn't rope him to anyone because of his size. 5:33 PM 23-Dec-09
Shirley de Vries
InepdShirley The storm rages outside. This mountainous snow covered little hut will now be our home. Who knows for how long? 5:45 PM 23-Dec-09
Shirley de Vries
InepdShirley When will it be safe to return to this crazy world of hope and despair that I love ? When can I hold my love '@InepdShane again in my arms? 5:47 PM 23-Dec-09
Shirley de Vries
InepdShirley I planted 10 seedlings from Sven just before I left and kept them warm in my fanny pack. The are now by our tiny fire. 5:48 PM 23-Dec-09
Shirley de Vries
InepdShirley By caring for these little seedlings I will think of '@InepdShane 5:50 PM 23-Dec-09
Shirley de Vries
InepdShirley With every tender touch and every bit of sustenance I feed them I will be bringing life and warmth to '@InepdShane 's soul. 5:51 PM 23-Dec-09
Shirley de Vries
InepdShirley Better go. Klaus is restless , I better give him another shot of Ketamine. I think the Atropine is working against the last shot I gave him. 5:52 PM 23-Dec-09

Shirley de Vries,Shirley de Vries
InepdShirley First clear day in the mountains. Thick crisp snow . I feel so close to '@InepdShane up here. Such Peace. Typical! Klaus is now snoring. 7:30 PM 28-Dec-09
Shirley de Vries
InepdShirley Today 6 Seedlings from Sven burst through. So much hope now. We are running low on food. 7:33 PM 28-Dec-09
Shirley de Vries
InepdShirley We will soon have to forage on the lower forested slopes to find food in the wooded area. There could be some wild game. 7:39 PM 28-Dec-09
Shirley de Vries
InepdShirley We have have made a super sleeping bag for all of us to share our warmth on this cold winter nights. 7:41 PM 28-Dec-09
Shirley de Vries
InepdShirley Bakti, Klaus, Sigrid and I share everything, our food, warmth and soul just to survive. In this winter camp we are one . 7:43 PM 28-Dec-09
Shirley de Vries
InepdShirley The incredible time we had in Amsterdam and Copenhagen now seem decades past. 7:45 PM 28-Dec-09
Shirley de Vries
InepdShirley We discovered so much about ourselves , our ideas, our strengths and love. Our virtues, beliefs and commitment were tested. 7:46 PM 28-Dec-09
Shirley de Vries
InepdShirley Now we are being tested by this majestic winter desolation high in the mountains at Delta Bravo. 7:49 PM 28-Dec-09
Shirley de Vries
InepdShirley Sigrid and Bakti made the first outing today for food. They were gone the whole day and came back late without finding anything. 7:50 PM 28-Dec-09
Shirley de Vries
InepdShirley Sigrid and Bakti seemed to have altitude sickness and were slurring their words. I gave them a shot of Ketamine to help them out. 7:51 PM 28-Dec-09
Shirley de Vries
InepdShirley It's late and cold and my twitter hand is freezing up. World Peace not Justice! and '@InepdShane if you can her my tweet. I love you. 7:52 PM 28-Dec-09
Mercedes Bligh
InepdMercedes @InepdShirley We are doing all we can to find '@InepdShane. However things are very slow at this time of year between Xmas and New Year. 8:08 PM 28-Dec-09
Shirley de Vries
InepdShirley Running short on food. Bakti, Klaus and Sigrid didn't find any food again for the second day. 6:53 PM 29-Dec-09
Shirley de Vries
InepdShirley It was so courageous of Sigrid and Bakti to go out and search for food again after coming back yesterday in such a bad state. 6:56 PM 29-Dec-09
Shirley de Vries
InepdShirley Found some moss and tree bark and managed to make a soup with our last can of corned beef. Bakti, Sigrid and Klaus were to tired to eat. 6:58 PM 29-Dec-09
Shirley de Vries
InepdShirley I am wooried about Klaus's leg but he just wouldn't rest today. He wanted to join Sigrid and Bakti. They were out for 15 hours in the cold. 6:59 PM 29-Dec-09
Shirley de Vries
InepdShirley Still no news on '@InepdShane I hope he is safe. If only the Danish prison system would let him tweet I could be reassured. 7:01 PM 29-Dec-09
Shirley de Vries
InepdShirley Today 2 of Sven seedlings died that I planted for '@InepdShane. 7:02 PM 29-Dec-09
Shirley de Vries
InepdShirley For a while I lost some hope, but then I saw the other 4 still alive left from Sven. I knew then that '@InepdShane was fine. 7:03 PM 29-Dec-09
Kelvin Peterson
InepdKelvin Damien my son just came back from his 4th Gap year 10 months early. He had lost all his allowance. Very difficult time for him. 7:17 PM 29-Dec-09
Kelvin Peterson
InepdKelvin He had a very rough time in Thailand and Goa and was robbed several times. Poor boy is devastated to be back so early. 7:20 PM 29-Dec-09
Kelvin Peterson
InepdKelvin Samantha is still in Copenhagen and still hasn't been able to locate '@InepdShane after a week we might have to tell his family. 7:22 PM 29-Dec-09
Kelvin Peterson
InepdKelvin We think that '@InepdShane 's tunnel into Cop15 was a major security breach for the Danes and they are not too happy. 7:23 PM 29-Dec-09
Mercedes Bligh
InepdMercedes Jealous of MSF over this film http://bit.ly/4mPtjK Hope our Inepd film Green Light w/ Phil Collins & Tyra Banks will premier just before 4:32 PM 30-Dec-09
Kelvin Peterson
InepdKelvin Poor Damien had all his CDs stolen from the house . He's had such rotten luck recently, losing his allowance on his gap year and now this. 4:52 PM 30-Dec-09
Kelvin Peterson
InepdKelvin Suspect one of domestic staff maybe involved. Disappointing to think staff from developing world that we trust could betray us like that. 4:57 PM 30-Dec-09
Kelvin Peterson,Shirley de Vries,Shirley de Vries
InepdShirley 2 more seedlings of Sven died today only 2 left. Sigrid, Bakti &Klaus once again gone for the 3 day foraging for food. 6:28 PM 30-Dec-09
Shirley de Vries
InepdShirley We have no food left now. I feel so desperate today. Hunger the cold and unsure of where '@InepdShane is. I am so angry at those Danes. 6:30 PM 30-Dec-09
Shirley de Vries
InepdShirley Every metre of that 400m tunnel at #Cop15 he dug was for world peace and those people lock him up in secret like he's some sort criminal. 6:32 PM 30-Dec-09
Shirley de Vries
InepdShirley Bakti, Klaus and Sigrid came back happy but once again slurring their words from the altitude & hypothermia. They have so much spirit. 6:34 PM 30-Dec-09
Shirley de Vries
InepdShirley Sigrid, Bakti and Klaus are asleep and snoring heavily. I will give them a Ketamine shot to calm their sleep. 6:35 PM 30-Dec-09
Shirley de Vries
InepdShirley It's now the 3rd day without any real food. Sigrid, Bakti and Klaus are holding up well despite their long foraging expeditions. 3:03 PM 31-Dec-09
Shirley de Vries
InepdShirley I bitter wind circles camp Delta Bravo. Cold, hunger and now despair. The last two seedlings for '@InepdShane died today and I feel lost. 3:07 PM 31-Dec-09
Shirley de Vries
InepdShirley I am alone. Sigrid, Klaus and Bakti left early to find food and still have not returned. I am worried for them. 3:09 PM 31-Dec-09
Shirley de Vries
InepdShirley We were going to have a small celebration for New Years. To celebrate our achievement in helping '@InepdShane tunnel into Cop15. 3:10 PM 31-Dec-09
Shirley de Vries
InepdShirley I have a fair quantity of Inepd Therapeutic feeding products. I wanted to wait till one of us became malnourished before using them. 3:15 PM 31-Dec-09
Shirley de Vries
InepdShirley It's against the Inepd Nutrition Guideline to use these feeing products to prevent malnutrition, but I was only going to use the plumpy nut 3:41 PM 31-Dec-09
Shirley de Vries
InepdShirley There would be still a good stock of F100, F75, Ezzy Paste, BP5 and BP100 if one of us did contract malnutrition. Such a ghastly disease! 3:44 PM 31-Dec-09

InepdShirley Sigrid, Bakti and Klaus still not returned. Bloated from plumpy nut and BP5, with incredible thirst. Should have given more water in Darfur. 4:02 PM 1-Jan-10
Shirley de Vries
InepdShirley The temperature is well below -10 now in this mountainous mountain camp Delta Brave. I have to go and look for them. 4:04 PM 1-Jan-10
Shirley de Vries
InepdShirley The last time I saw them they were headed over mountain peak De Waal 5 looking for food. 4:05 PM 1-Jan-10
Shirley de Vries
InepdShirley They had been up De Waal 5 every day looking for food with out luck. I don't know why Sigrid, Bakti and Klaus went there again. 4:06 PM 1-Jan-10
Joy Leonardo
Joy_Leo  Wish you all the luck you need '@InepdShirley 4:11 PM 1-Jan-10

Shirley de Vries
InepdShirley @JoyPaoki Thanks, having your support means a lot for me and our movement. 4:13 PM 1-Jan-10
Shirley de Vries
InepdShirley A full moon has helped light my way. The stars are so close. Quick break and some BP5 to before I summit de Waal 5. Bitterly cold. 6:55 PM 1-Jan-10
Shirley de Vries
InepdShirley Have lost movement in my hands and toes. I feel dizzy but know I must keep going to try and find Klaus, Bakti and Sigrid before all is lost. 6:57 PM 1-Jan-10
Shirley de Vries
InepdShirley Such peace, want to fall asleep where I sit in the snow looking at pictures of '@InepdShane He was so handsome with his water injected drill 7:01 PM 1-Jan-10
Shirley de Vries
InepdShirley So sleepy, have to go on. I can't give into the cold. Must keep going damn it! Can't give in. Must keep going for Sigrid, Bakti and Klaus. 7:05 PM 1-Jan-10
Mercedes Bligh
InepdMercedes Oh dear '@InepdShirley seems to be in such a frightful mess. If only there was something we could do over the holiday period! 7:26 PM 1-Jan-10
Kelvin Peterson
InepdKelvin  @InepdMercedes maybe start a #SaveShirley campaign Also could inform '@InepdShirley 's family she is in hiding & now lost in the mountains. 7:33 PM 1-Jan-10
gaz'
gazis  @InepdShirley Amazing remote alpine twitter coverage. If only your friends had iphones or similar product. That would be cool. gl. 8:01 PM 1-Jan-10
Shirley de Vries,Shirley de Vries
InepdShirley @gazis My current Twitter Plan only has limited coverage. If I upgrade I guess I would be able to reach friends and family. 10:02 AM 2-Jan-10
Shirley de Vries
InepdShirley Just about to reach the summit of de Waal 5. Could be a false summit. Only a few metres to go. Still have not seen Klaus, Sigrid or Bakti 8:24 PM 1-Jan-10
Shirley de Vries
InepdShirley I feel so confused and lost. There is a ski resort Just below de Waal 5 on the other side. Klaus, Bakti and Sigrid must have seen it before 8:25 PM 1-Jan-10
Shirley de Vries
InepdShirley But why didn't they tell me. Was it to make sure I could stay in hiding. I am so confused. I feel betrayed. 8:26 PM 1-Jan-10
Shirley de Vries
InepdShirley I am now heading down into the ski village. 8:27 PM 1-Jan-10
Shirley de Vries
InepdShirley Through the window of the Pub Le Bois Des Fees. I can see Klaus pouring drinks behind the Bar. What does this mean. 8:30 PM 1-Jan-10
Shirley de Vries
InepdShirley In the kitchen window Sigrid and Bakti are washing dishes. What does this all mean. Have they turned their backs on de Waalianism. 8:31 PM 1-Jan-10
Shirley de Vries
InepdShirley Maybe they are true de Waalians. Sidelining some principles in return for some warmth and comfort. 8:35 PM 1-Jan-10
Shirley de Vries
InepdShirley I will disguise myself with my BP5 & Plumpy Nut thermal blanket and enter the Pub Le Bois Des Fees and confront the treacherous 3. 8:38 PM 1-Jan-10
Mercedes Bligh
InepdMercedes Finally got around spending press release for '@InepdShane. http://bit.ly/1a8KBS Let's hope this has an impact. Please RT to #FreeShane 5:39 PM 2-Jan-10
Shirley de Vries
InepdShirley I had it out with Klaus, Sigrid and Bakti. They felt they had to leave as they were having doubts over de Waalanism. 5:43 PM 2-Jan-10
Shirley de Vries
InepdShirley They planned to come back with food for me every now and then. The couldn't tell me the movement was at an end. 5:44 PM 2-Jan-10
Shirley de Vries
InepdShirley I guess I started to question de Waalanism as well. With Shane detained without justice. Could this be right? 5:45 PM 2-Jan-10
Shirley de Vries
InepdShirley Maybe there is a place in this crazy world for Justice and not just Peace. Maybe they belong together. What am I saying. I am so conflicted. 5:47 PM 2-Jan-10
Shirley de Vries
InepdShirley Well now just going into my second shift. Bakti and Sigrid managed to get me a job as a lift attendant on the Poussins drag lift for kiddies 5:50 PM 2-Jan-10
Shirley de Vries,Shirley de Vries
InepdShirley Glad '@InepdMercedes has done something for '@InepdShane gotta help Bakti and Sigrid with the dishes in the Pub Pub Le Bois Des Fees. 5:53 PM 2-Jan-10
