Re: PLB - The perennial discussion.

Depends on what walking you would be doing and whether you will have phone coverage. If sketchy or going to be in a remote location, then I would go for either SPOT locator or Garmin Inreach locator. SPOT uses Globalstar satellites which is not 100% global coverage. Garmin Inreach (or pre-Garmin tak...

Re: West Highland Way September 2018

Superb report and stunning photo's! Sorry to read that you did not complete the last stages but WHW isn't going anywhere and there is always another time :) Inspiring for someone else who has not walked it to get planning for 2019

Re: Cape Wrath Trail Vlog 2018

Thoroughly enjoyed the video series and hope the ViewRanger app as recommended works out for you in the future. Working my way through your back catalogue of videos at the moment and be interested to see how the ZPACKS Arc Zip works out in the field. Considering the Arc Blast but been holding off. T...

Re: Gout!

I get Gout now and again but I drink 2+ litres of water each day, I don't eat cheese a lot, red wine is two glasses a week at the weekend and red meat .... oh I dream of it but Wifey prefers chicken all the time. I was prescribed "Colchicine" 500mcg tablets by the quack. Two tiny pills whe...

Re: Wild camping the WHW - What food to take?

Our American friends have written a lot bout what food to eat when out on the "trail". As has been said, it's about the most calories for the lightest weight and not about being healthy nor part of your five-a-day. Trail mix of nuts, dried fruits and chocolate to eat on the move. As an exa...

Re: Multi Munro Bagging

This is Crowborough Summit in the south of England. It gets to be a Marilyn as there is a 150 m drop between it and the next hill. Crowborough is my home town :D and did not know we had a Marilyn. It is the highest point in East Sussex so perhaps should have known :roll: Bagged the trig point which...

Re: Hadrian's Wall Path

A cracking good report. With my wife coming from Northumberland but presently residing (and squeezed) into the South East (but only for 18 more months :) ) this trail is on my to-do list. I've often thought of skipping the first phase myself when walking through Newcastle but then felt that this was...
