Those holes in the wall with the wood sticking out reminds me of houses in Southern France where whole tree trunks sticking out of both sides of a building support the internal floors.

Hoy there gulliBell....exactly Korrekt Mate; bleed-air cabin heating & demisting screen (of sorts) + Pitot tube heater (great for Kids & Adults alike, to swing off after You shut down but leave the Pitot heater ON ) Yep it's an optional extra (bad luck) to seek out & enter icing conditions
Hi VF, 28,800' is amazing. Would be very happy to read more details of that flight. Staying out of icing conditions in that part of the world must be tricky at times. Very impressive. Please keep on posting the great photos, loving them.

Just a stab in the dark, because I've only had to use anti-ice maybe only one or twice in 20+ years, but I wouldn't have thought icing would be too much of an issue at those low OAT if you keep out of the clouds. Not likely to be any visible moisture outside the clouds because it's too cold. And keeping out of the clouds is what you'd be doing in any event in a VFR operation.

I'd even drink the green tea in exchange for a big piece of that crumpet.
