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 are the odds that I stand a chance against Wild Boars?
They are generally considered one of the most dangerous and aggressive animals you will find in the wild. I would not advise fighting or running, but ideally avoiding!

comment How to deal with little flies flying into the eyes?
+1 Head nets, definitely. Hiking in the west of Scotland these are essential for keeping midges off your face, and they work just as well for Chloropidae.
