“The ride is about the yeti, and our story is about our interaction with that yeti. When we get on this train and we go up into the forbidden mountain domain of the yeti, he destroys the track ,and the thrill part of our ride is escaping the wrath of the yeti as we return to civilization.” Joe Rohde

ICE BREAK MOUNTAIN MANIFESTO:
Our Holy Text on our Holy Mountain was written by the Yeti, and points the way to effective communication. Contrary to popular belief, Yeti’s are very good communicators – making use of a full range of non-verbal signals to achieve a deep understanding.
The first three chapters of this text are as follows:
Chapter the First:
No thy subject.
This can be achieved by finding out the three most important things about the target of your attention.
1. How many fillings have they got?
2. What posters (if any) did/do they have on their bedroom/cave wall?
3. Do they understand they are mortal, or do they expect to live forever?
From these three things a Yeti can tell much. The subject’s age and health, the subject’s sexuality and outlook. Their chances of finding happiness.
Chapter the Second:
Examine their adornments.
How many rings have they? If any, why do they wear them? On which fingers (or toes)? Do they have fur?
Chapter the Third:
Much can be learnt from our sense of smell. Inhale Deeply. Now, say the first thing that comes in to your mind. Inhale again. Is their a slight tone of burnt hair? A bass note of artificial pine? A hint of cherry?
