Re: The Vosges, France. Walk recommendations?

I have been to the vosges twice now, I would recommend walking to the Hohneck (starting from Mittlach) , a walk to the ballon d'alsace (starting from Sewen) is also very nice.
I always sleep in a ferme-auberge and walk from one to the other.

Re: Bulls.

Cattle related threads are dangerous but... There are so many potential reasons why the bull was there, maybe another hillwalker didn't close a fence after passing trough, etc, .... the best course of action is probably just to inform the farmer that you think his bull is somewhere it probably isn't...

Re: Kirk Fell

I also went down this way, very tiring :-) . I would prefer ascending this way I think. It's always easier going up!

Re: One person tent

I got an inner net from bear paw, but I don't really like it, it's impossible to pitch "nice". That aside, it does serve it's purpose. I decided on bear paw because Ookworks apparently has really long delivery time (over 6 months, which is just too much) and it's cheaper then MLD. If there...

Re: One person tent

I use a MLD trailstar and for the summer in Scotland I would combine it with a inner net. A lot of space, very good protection from the wind and no "closed in" feeling. And very very light :-) Depending on your location in Belgium you can try it out in my back yard ;-)

Re: Would you abandon your best mate?

Oh, I wasn't targetting you with my last remark. Seems that in my defense of Mr. X I might have been too much on the offense :-)

Re: Would you abandon your best mate?

obviously yes. Obvious how? I don't think that a dogs life has equal value when compared to a humans so I think the choice to abandon it would be easier (example, my dog's death would only affect me and the dog, whereas a human would affect his parents, children, friends, ... and no I will not go i...

Re: Would you abandon your best mate?

1) Would you totally abandon your best mate if he collapsed or went lame. Yes, if not abandoning him would lead to my certain death. Of course this is not desirable but letting my children grow up without a father because I chose to make a grand futile gesture seems wrong. 2) Would it make any diffe...

Re: Small rucksack advice

When going out with a small backpack I just put the things that shouldn't get wet (clothing) in a dry-bag.

I don't like pack-covers because they aren't as reliable (had one blown away). Down side is that your pack can get wet, but as a small pack is used for day trips that isn't a big deal.

Re: (Wild) Camping Loch Lomond

I think along the entire WHW from Drymen to Balmaha (not Balmaha itself though) you are allowed to camp. So if you leave late in Drymen you could camp on conic hill. If you leave late it shouldn't be a problem to bring enough water, you could resupply the next morning in Balmaha. No Camping on / nea...

Re: Fox's and Ticks

I've never heard of a fox trying to get in a tent, so just think of yourself lucky for having experienced that :-) Don't know about ticks, I think they don't move around so much. They go from one host to another and basically just wait in high grass untill the next host comes around, once they've ha...
