Walker, canoeist, sailer, glider pilot, rock climber and father of 3.

Middle son of a polar explorer, and grew up in the wilds of Orkney and the Falklands - so take after my father in outdoors pursuits.

Happy in the middle of mountains or forests in a tent :-)

nhinkle - you are absolutely right about that being an expected limit for basic first aiders. Totally agree with getting proper training.

comment How to select a good GPS receiver?
Handheld GPS devices all quote different tolerances. While timing accuracy is important, some devices use other sources, such as inertial navigation etc.
