Re: Blatant scrounge! Spare seat in a car 9th July?

Hi!

I'm pretty easy. I'd prefer north/west but not if the weather disagrees!

I could pick you up in Granton, it's no problem! I like to leave nice and early so there won't be traffic at that time.

Lets wait until closer to the weekend to see the forecast on your house viewing and the weather :)

Re: Blatant scrounge! Spare seat in a car 9th July?

Hi Ian, I'm looking to get back into the hills after an extended leave (life and other interests got in the way!). You're looking for a lift and I'm looking for company so if you fancy heading somewhere that would be grand. I'm in Midlothian. Not too fussy about where we go, but a Munro I've not bee...

Ben Vorlich - conditions

Hi :D

Has anyone been up Ben Vorlich (Loch Earn) recently? Or can Stirling-ish folk see it?

I'm wondering if there's much snow up there.

Thanks a lot,
David

Re: Satellite Navigation Vs Map & Compass

especially in winter (batteries don't like the cold of course). That's actually an excellent point and the very reason I carry a paper map. Last winter I spent a day in the Fannichs. My car said it was -20something when I parked up! Throughout the day my fully charged camera, GPS and head torch all...

Re: Winter Bagging!

Sticking to the more popular hills would be wise. If you're just walking you won't need to spend too much money to equip for winter. An axe is probably wise if you want to be able to arrest yourself when gravity is sucking you down a slope at 100mph to your doom! Crampons are nice to have but if you...

Re: Trangia

I was camping with a really nice random guy I met in the Mamores last weekend. His rucksack weighed more than my car, mostly due to the massive Trangia he was carrying. I didn't see the point in it to be honest, seeing as I managed to cook my dinner and make tea using my rubbish little £6 stove and ...

Re: some advice needed

Hello :D Unfortunately it'll probably cost you quite bit more for winter gear as you'll need an axe, crampons and crampon compatible boots. In particular if you're looking at crampons for climbing, as opposed to not sliding you'll need to buy rigid boots with welts (think ~£400 for boots and crampon...

Re: Rucksack for wildcamping?

I'm pretty sure the Xti was the US name for the 400D? I believe it uses the same body as my 500D so it should fit. Think I'll give it a go. At the very least I'll end up with a new pocket to store biscuits! I've been absent from the forums for a wee while and managed to miss that Glencoe thread. Unf...

Interesting. What model do you have? What lens? I've been storing my Canon 500d and 18-200 lens in the lid but it's far from ideal!
