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 Can you keep your feet warm in ski boots on a very cold day?
Never thought of this- the only times my feet get too cold are when my boots are too tight, or if they get wet (which is always a danger in Scottish snow)

comment How can I start a fire by rubbing two sticks together?
I taught my two eldest kids to do it, first just using hands,then a bow. It is hard work, and I'd expect them to always have a flint, but it is good to know you can do it in an emergency.

comment How can you navigate without a compass or GPS
I will probably have a look at these books, but this would be a much better answer if you could provide a couple of examples quotes...

comment Should I register caches when I know in longer perspective I will move?
Yep - there are a couple of places they seem to be accepted. It does allow individuals on the move to create a cache despite knowing they will not be able to maintain it in the future.
