Re: Best Jan/Feb Walking Destinations (inc. Europe)?

La Palma (the island of La Palma) also, has nice choices for walking. Yup agree, we had a nice break last winter to Gran Canaria though, so looking for something different this time around! La Palma (not to be confused with the town of Las Palmas ) is another island west of Tenerife and a favourite...

Re: Best Jan/Feb Walking Destinations (inc. Europe)?

La Palma (the island of La Palma) also, has nice choices for walking. However, when walking in the Canaries be aware of the cliffs . They can appear like from nowhere. A question of carrying a map and being sensible, mostly, but still too many tourists have fallen into one of our gullies, sometimes...

Re: Great Glen Way, do I need a water filter?

Abriachan campsite didn't have running water when I stayed there and water is scarce all the way from Drumnadrochit to Inverness so be prepared for that section. There was a sign for tap water up that way, but I couldn't find the standpipe. Thank you, that's helpful, as I'm considering to rest there.

Re: Great Glen Way, do I need a water filter?

Thank you, all things considered, I'll take a water filter with us, just for the peace of mind and the ability to carry much less water.

Great Glen Way, do I need a water filter?

Hi,
I'm thinking on, ---slowly---, doing the Great Glen Way next summer, camping most of the way, and I was wondering if I would need a water filter or I just can buy / get safe water along the way.

So, what would be your advice?

Re: Good ol canoe and kayak

First of all, there is something I want to stress. For lovers and nature and adventure, the main thing cannot be to have the most practical, "best", "ultralight" or classic gear. This is about playing. Playing, exactly, finally live the dreams of adventure you once had. If a cano...

Re: Gift suggestions to top a Jetboil Zip Stove....

Just wondering if anyone has any walking gear related gift suggestions - the best gift I ever bought my partner was the Jetboil Zip stove and I fear it may be impossible to buy a more loved and used present. Our level of walking tends to be just day trips so no lightweight camping gear would be req...

Re: Laundry on the trail

When I did long cycle rides with daughter, I posted a parcel to myself including a return parcel three or four pairs of pants and a tee shirt each. You can do this anywhere there is a post office or any B & B along the route. It also had the advantage that we could post back our maps....brought...

Re: Laundry on the trail

On a serious note, on my last trip to the Summer Isles, I brought a small tarp with me for the purpose of drying underwear (I was kayaking, mind you!) but I didn't bother at the end. (I just figured out the seals wouldn't mind my smell and back to the mainland there's a little campsite with faciliti...

Re: Looking for all-in-one gadget

Hi, I'm a technophobe par excellence, so forgive me if this seems a bit basic. I'm looking for a gadget that can, at the end of a hillwalk, tell me the following: 1. Precise route taken (on electronic map, once uploaded to Mac computer) 2. Distance walked 3. Total ascent over the route 4. Time take...

Re: Pain in groin/hip - any ideas?

I studied medicine at the University of Nowhere.... and Let's stop pretending I can be funny. I've spent a month figuring out what could be wrong with me, and getting advice online. I only got reasons to concern about a few nasty sickness and conditions. In the end, I got to see my GP, did some test...
