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 Tyvek is suitable for footprint material
Interesting question - this would be good to know. So did Tyvek come out best for these? I remember your question on sealing the bottom of your tent and wondered what you would settle on.

comment Climbing Insurance
Shopping recommendations are not a good fit for SE as the answers will change over time and are in any case very subjective. The FAQ explains this.

comment How do I reseal a tent bottom with many pinprick holes
For a two man tent, a groundsheet/footprint surely can't be that heavy?

comment How do I tie a slackline with only carabiners and webbing?
Updated regarding tension - that will be your biggest problem, unless you get a ratchet. Also - metal rings can take the tension, but carabiners may not :-)
