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 :-)

comment What kind of car do I need to reach most hiking trailheads near Boulder Colorado, Rocky Mountain NP
Obviously we don't do shopping advice, but I'm also a huge Subaru fan - have had WRX's and Foresters because they survive and get you there. That said, any good offroader will be a good idea.

comment How to humanely kill an injured bird?
I think this falls within topic - it is something that while not common, can happen to any of us when hiking/camping etc., and it could be useful to know for a couple of reasons (including a poor shot when hunting, I guess - would you waste another bullet?)

comment How should I traverse fields with horses in?
In Scotland there is no law of trespass (couple of exceptions for military firing ranges etc), so you can walk where you like
