Re: Emergency Shelters

They are definitely not just for emergencies - I have a Terra Nova 2 person one and they are great if you want to have a bite to eat in your own comfortable micro climate, rather than in wind and rain. I have used mine more than I expected and it just sits in the bottom of the pack, weighing next t...

Emergency Shelters

Hi, I am looking for recommendations for emergency shelters for hiking. I had a quick browse on the internet but there are SOOOOO many. Looking for as small and compact and light as possible as I'm hoping I'll never have to use it but I've recently had a baby and I feel more of a responsibility to b...

If anyone came across this and has it I'd be really grateful if they got in touch. It belonged to my dad. I know its a total...

Lui - a beautiful but monstrous beast of a munro

Ben Lui, the monstrous Munro of 1130m tackled on 11th July 2020 was one of the most annoying and interesting experiences I have had on a hike. I was 13 weeks pregnant. It was the first Munro I had done since the first pandemic lockdown. We tried it in February that year going up from the Dalrigh sid...
