Bit of web spinning -- static pages.

Bit of perl scripting.

Compared to most of the people on this site, I'm woefully ignorant. But at least I try to be polite.

comment How to rate a walk/hike by length, height gain, etc using analysis of GPS data?
Much depends on the smoothing algolrithms, however on canoe trips the altitude registers usually within 5-10 meters of the marked elevation of the lake. However, I tend to use just the contour lines on the map route. Count the ones crossed or touched.

comment How do I balance the muscle usage and strength of my body when long-distance hiking?
Few tasks were so exclusively walking that the rest of the body didn't get a workout, and in the time frame you are most likely concerned about (days, weeks hiking) the degradation in upper body strength is relatively minor. However backpacking rough terrain gives me far more than just a leg workout.
